Lupita on another first!
Since she got nominated for an Oscar for her role in 12 Years A Slave over two months ago, Kenya actress Lupita Nyong’o has dominated international showbiz headlines for all the good reasons.
Over the weekend, she was presented with an NAACP Image Award for outstanding supporting actress in the movie 12 Years a Slave.
She is said to be the most promising Hollywood star and everyone now wants a piece of her. However, Lupita is not only an emerging talented Kenyan actress, but is also turning out as one of Tinseltown’s most beautiful and stylish young stars.
The 30-year-old looked breathtakingly gorgeous in an array of flattering outfits in a photo spread for DuJour Magazine’s Winter 2013 issue released over the weekend.
She showed off her toned figure in a series of racy yet sophisticated ensembles.
In one shot published in Mail Online, the star looks angelic in a low-cut white gown that featured an open panel below the bust.
In another picture, she bares her leg in an unusual navy blue number, adding a further touch of class with a string of pearls around her neck.
The actress graces the cover of the luxury magazine’s Winter 2013 issue.
Lupita told the magazine that she is surprised at how much attention she has been receiving.
“My life changed about three weeks ago,” she said. “That’s when my schedule went from nil to this,” she said.
On auditioning for her 12 Years a Slave role, the actress never thought she would get it.
“When I learned Steve McQueen was directing and Brad Pitt was producing, I thought; well, this is huge. I had no expectation of getting the role at all. It was just too out there for me to think I had a chance.
