This morning, we nearly fell out of our beds in excitement when we saw that Lupita Nyong’o had landed her second cover for the fashion bible’s October issue. I was really looking forward to wearing something from the line, ‘ Lupita told the New York Times at the event.
VOGUE/MERT ALAS AND MARCUS PIGGOTT “I didn’t know the power of couture until I tried on a couture dress”, Nyong’o told Vogue.
The 32-year-old star actress speaks to Vogue contributing editor Plum Skyes about fashion, fame, family, new projects and lots more.
While shooting her stunning Vogue cover, she walked around the office answering any question – as long as it wasn’t about Star Wars. Her very creative aunt Kitty would sew clothes for her in those days, Nyong’o recounted. She jokingly said that she has an 80-year-old woman inside her.
“Presentation is extremely important in Kenya“.
In a video clip of Vogue’s “73 Questions,” during which she brandishes a red lightsaber and hula-hoops in heels, she revealed that she wore more than 168 CGI dots to film her role.
However, she will always feel “a child of Kenya”.
Lupita found that the land has “this” spirit to push anyone with what they want to do.
Nyong’o admits she’d like for her future children to have a similar upbringing to herself – in Kenya. Next up for Nyong’o is co-starring in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, out December 18. “When I have that man”, she adds.
