And aside from her stunning looks, the 31-year-old star was also considered last award season’s fashion winner. In January 2014, the actress graced the cover of DuJour Magazine’s Winter issue. While on the red carpet to celebrate the star’s first US solo cover, Nyong’o opened up about her love for fashion.
“Fashion is art and art is collaboration. I have amazing artists to collaborate with so we all conspire together on what to do next,” she told us. “I love Iman [Abdulmajid]. I’ve always thought she was fabulous. She is regal. Elizabeth Taylor is also a major inspiration of mine. I like to pay homage to such people.”
