And the winner is… Lupita Nyong’o
In all categories, for all things humble, beautiful and talented, Lupita Nyong’o is #winning. Nyong’o has recently won Screen Actors Guild and Critics’ Choice Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her work in Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave. What makes these awards even more special? 12 years a Slave was Nyongo’s first acting role, fresh out of the Yale School of Drama.
While her film peers are singing her praises, simultaneously, fashion critics are enamored by her goddess-like grace and impeccable sense of style. Nyong’o will be the face of the MIU MIU spring ad campaign for 2014.
If having immeasurable talent and fashion sense wasn’t enough the 30 year old actress is extremely humble. Her Instagram and twitter pages are littered with thank you’s. Her acceptance speeches are evocative, passionate and thoughtful.
All smiles are on the lovely Lupita Nyong’o
