Porter Magazine has dubbed Lupita Nyong’o the most desired woman in Hollywood as of this moment. The black and beautiful Kenyan actress is the cover star of Net-a-porter’s editorial magazine and she looks fierce in a red outfit and bold red lips as she poses for photography genius Mario Sorrenti.
Lupita is not superficial and right now, she is focused on driving change in Hollywood, empowering women and redressing beauty standards for people of color and taking good care of her hair lol. See all of her great shots as you scroll and read some excerpts from her interview with Cathy Kasterine.
Nyong’o was born in Mexico City but grew up in Nairobi, in a large and politically prominent family. “We’re extremely close,” she says. She had 12 aunts who were always about. “Some of them were trippy,” she says, laughing. “But together they gave me a really good base of what womanhood is and can be.” Nyong’o’s sense of style developed early; closet staples included red corduroy skirted overalls and a sweet, flowery, purple-and-pink dress that she proceeds to describe in detail. “I wore it to every event. It’s kinda still the style I wear today,” she says.
Lupita Nyong’o, is a 35-year-old, Oscar-winning actress, who has appeared on the cover of American Vogue four times. Earlier this year the Hollywood Reporter named her the most famous African actress in the world.
