Lupita Nyong'o Meets Louis Vuitton On The January Cover of 'ELLE UK'
You can dream about winning an Academy Award or being crowned by People as "The Most Beautiful Woman", but for one brilliant actress, this is her reality — and more. Lupita Nyong'o is ELLE UK's January cover girl, yet again demonstrating her photogenic chops. The issue hits newstands tomorrow, so you'll soon have your daily dose of Lupita and style.
The January cover features Nyong'o in a vibrant, one-shoulder Louis Vuitton number. Her skin, a radiant, youthful glow. Her smile, dazzling, as always. There is no doubt that Nyong'o leaves a heart-stopping effect on the casual reader — her effortless beauty and humble beginnings as production assistant turned Hollywood icon makes her especially appealing.
Nyong'o's ELLE UK interview is indeed a colorful mix — she tackles everything from her upcoming role in Star Wars to personal insecurities and opinions on fame. From Kenya to the galaxy and beyond, Lupita Nyong'o has certainly paved a powerful force for herself.
Naturally, she's dominated every corner of the fashion and beauty scene. Last year, Nyong'o struck it as a Miu Miu campaign model alongside the likes of Elizabeth Olsen, Elle Fanning, and Bella Heathcote. In addition to making the cut on Derek Blasberg's Best Dressed of 2014, Lancôme snapped Nyong'o as the new face of their international beauty house. Now that's a one-of-a-kind resume.
