The actress, author and activist’s stand-out looks, from the red carpet to the New York sidewalk
Lupita Nyong’o has graced the covers of numerous magazines, fronted beauty and fashion campaigns, and starred in best-dressed lists year after year. Unafraid of bright colours and eye-catching patterns and accessories, she has a distinct and enviable sense of style. Set to produce and star in the forthcoming mini-series Americanah, based on Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s novel of the same name, as well to appear in the female-only spy film 335 (due for release in January next year), she’s sure to be returning to the red carpet with more memorable looks soon. Here is our selection of her best outfits from the past year, plus inspiration for how to recreate them.
