Lupita Nyong’o's First Vogue Cover, photographed by Mikael Jansson, July 2014
In a very short time, the luminous and talented Lupita Nyong’o has become a fashion icon – dazzling the red carpet last winter in bright, bold, daring fashions as she gathered up most of the awards for her role in 12 Years a Slave. Now she’s a staple at fashion events, as well as the new face of Lancôme. In addition to her heartbreaking, breakthrough performance and her cool sense of style and confidence, she has also delighted film and fashion fans alike with her brightness and intelligence. Hamish Bowles interviews Lupita for the July issue of Vogue, and Mikael Jansson photographs Lupita in various locales in Marrakech as she effortlessly models pieces by powerhouse designers like Ricardo Tisci for Givenchy, Rodarte, and Proenza Schouler.
