Academy Award winner. Lancome Ambassador. Future Star Wars star. Perpetual It girl for the ages. These are some of the titles bestowed on Kenyan import Lupita Nyong’o. And now, she can add Vogue cover girl to her growing list of accolades. When I first saw these photos surface on my favorite message forum and in my Pinterest feed earlier today, it did not occur to me that Lupita should’ve landed the coveted September issue. And now, since I’ve eaten and had some rest (it was a long night), I think this photoshoot would’ve added some serious pizazz to the issue. Take a peek at the spellbinding images from the shoot, which was shot by Mikael Jansson:
It looks like they had a complete ball shooting Lupita and I’m here for it. I hope later on I can find out some makeup details because she’s looks so unreal in these shots. Like, can you even deal?! Check out the entire article on the Vogue website. What are your thoughts?
