Lupita Nyong’o is a force to be reckoned with. The multi-talented actress, she became the first Kenyan and first Mexican actress to win an Academy Award thanks to her stellar performance in 2013 smash Twelve Years A Slave. She has also been named Woman Of The Year by Glamour, nominated for a Tony award for her role in the critically acclaimed play Eclipsed, and named the Most Beautiful Woman In The World by People. Phew. How’s that for a list of enviable accolades?
Taking to social media to shine a light on important issues across the globe, the actress also uses her platform to reach her 4.3 million subscribers and offer them a glimpse into her life off-stage and behind the screen.
Rocking statement shades and showcasing a beautiful eye for fashion and fabrics, Lupita lights up her Instagram with colourful outfits and bold ensembles.
Read on for a rundown of our favourite recent looks, and how you can steal the star’s style!
We adore this shot of Lupita drenched in golden light pouring through a window. Wearing a beautiful bodycon dress with cut-away neckline and contrasting cream and gold stripes, it’s a gorgeous look from the actress.
Lupita completes the look with a pair of oversized round shades. The circular frame trend shows no sign of letting up, and the actress showcases here exactly why!
We think the William Morris London WL6600 make a great match to those worn by Lupita in the shot above. Grab them to steal her style!
Pictured here at the Global Citizen Festival, Lupita rocks an iridescent raspberry coloured bomber jacket, and we couldn’t be more in love with her cool off-duty vibe here.
The pops of yellow and orange on the cuffs, collar and pocket on the jacket are great examples of Lupita’s eye for slick tailoring and penchant for bold colours.
We’re loving Lupita’s circular aviators here too. Effortlessly cool, they’re a great spin on a well established classic. Grab the Calvin Klein Jeans CKJ121S to steal Lupita’s style, and to add a touch of chic to any outfit!
It’s all about the statement slogan tee and matching shades in the above shot! Reading ‘Flexin In My Complexion’, the empowering tee goes hand in hand with Lupita’s activism and advocacy to love the skin you are in.
We’re loving the coordinating oversized shades here, too. Quirky square frames are big news right now, and Fendi is leading the way with their bold designs and attention to detail. The Fendi FF 0259/S makes for a solid choice
It’s all sunshine and smiles in the summery shot above! Rocking a beautiful printed dress with coordinating red trainers and simple cream cross-body bag, it’s the perfect festival-ready look.
Lupita works a stunning pair of geometric shaped frames here, injecting the same dash of quirky detailing we’ve seen before from the actress.
If you’re looking for a fresh twist on a classic, try the Adidas Originals AOM007. With their half octagon/half circular frames, they’re a great way to change up a tried and tested look!
Bright, bold colours steal the show here, featured in vivid prints. Lupita works a cute cropped vest and a beautiful printed skirt, officially channelling summer in a single outfit!
While her look is bursting with colour, Lupita’s shades are slightly less conspicuous, with the actress opting for simple round frames.
We’re loving the understated shades, and think the McQ MQ0058SK make a great match for an easy to wear summer staple. Grab them below!
