Girl of the week: Lupita Nyong'o
Making fashion headlines last week as one of the star faces of Miu Miu's latest 'young Hollywood' advertising campaign alongside Elle Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen and Bella Heathcote, actress Lupita Nyong'o looked every inch the supermodel. And to follow that, her presence at the Golden Globes last week dazzling in red Ralph Lauren only heightened her appeal.
Nyong'o's strong image combines with a baby-faced freshness, and so a recent appearance on the cover of Dazed & Confused, dedicated to notorious 'Girl Power', does not surprise. The Kenyan actress told the Dazed team about filming with Steve McQueen and stereotypes that prevent women in Hollywood.
After seeing the bright, stylised images in print plus her various red carpet wins – it only eagers fans to see her in a similar manner on screen, after her serious role in Oscar-nominated 12 Years a Slave.
We imagine a brave superheroine, saving the world... Preferably with a golden statuette in hand once the Academy Awards arrive in March, too.
