Okay hands up, who saw this coming?Lupita Nyong’o, the darling of the 2014 film awards, has landed herself an American Vogue cover, which is really the only magazine cover that matters. Nyong’o wasn’t exactly a shocker for a cover choice considering how much she has been lauded of late in both the fashion and entertainment industry’s. Lupita looks absolutely radiant in Prada for the cover (because really, what else) and the accompanying photo shoot by Mikael Jansson is all kinds of beautiful – the snake-charmer shot is my personal favourite. Lupita has been a fashion favourite for quite a while now, previously featuring in American Vogue as January’s It Girl. Its great that she’s being recognised as not only an incredibly actress, but the beautiful women that she is. All hail Queen Lupita.
