Lupita Nyongo: My African Fashionista

Hey lovies,

So, guess who is my new Fashionista Obssession? What? Who? I can’t hear you? Did i hear somebody say Lupita Nyongo? Well, you got that right. By now, we have probably googled Lupita and stalked her (either on the net, social media etc) and, we should all know her story or atleast some parts of it so, i’ll just share a little with you just incase you don’t know.

Lupita Nyongo is Mexican-Kenyan born. Born in Mexico but raised in Kenya. She studied in the U.S and became a Production Assistant then, went on to Yale School of Drama to get her Master’s dregree. Later on, she came back to Kenya to star in the first ever Season of Shuga (Which is about Love, Sex and Money but concentrated on showing us the Perils of unsafe sex and HIV). I remember watching it but never realising that the person i was looking at would go ahead to win an OSCAR for Best Supporting Actress and since then, Lupita’s life hasn’t been the same.

Now, not only is she known for giving one of the Best OSCAR-worthy speech but her Fashion style has become something of interest. Lupita is graciously making statements everywhere she goes. Here are a few of my Fav outfits from this beautiful and talented lady. Enjoy…
