The “Fresh Faces” issue features Nyong’o among a crop of Hollywood starlets the magazine deems to be “on fire” right now. Kate Mara, Elle Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen and Emilia Clarke join Lupita as cover girls for the May issue.


In her interview with the mag, the 12 Years A Slave star reveals she wasn’t always a fashionista, the agony of award shows and the perks of being famous.


On Fashion:
“I wasn’t a follower of fashion. It was a world unknown. Then I met my stylist, Micaela Erlanger [introduced to her by friend and Non-Stop costar Michelle Dockery], and we came to interpret my style: clean lines, strong color. I don’t dress to impress; I don’t feel that pressure.”

On Waiting For Her Category During Award Shows:
“I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. It’s an internally loud moment. It’s not even about the outcome; it’s about the agony of the unknown. It’s like waiting for test results in a hospital.”

On The Perks Of Being Famous:
“I met Sidney Poitier, who has been someone I’ve looked up to and a blessing from afar. It was an incredible thing and something that I hold very dear to my heart.”


Marie Claire also hosted a swanky soiree at the SoHo House in West Hollywood on Tuesday night to celebrate their gorgeous cover girls. Lupita hit the red carpet in a beautiful white and blue, embroidered frock and, as usual, her hair was styled to perfection!

While on the carpet for “Marie Claireโ€™s Fresh Faces Party” Nyong’o spoke about being on the cover of the monthly mag. “Of course it’s an honor! To be on the cover of a magazine is a very exclusive thing and I’m happy to have been granted that opportunity,” stated the bold beauty.

The May issue of Marie Claire hits stands soon.


Tamar Braxton Fires Stylist Over $40 Outfit



Ya’ll already know Tamar Braxton is not the one to try. But her stylist must not have gotten the memo. Apparently he thought it was ok to belittle her for wearing a jumper from Forever 21 during a recent interview and she had to hand him his walking papers.

Braxton let her fans know what went down via her Instagram account and also encouraged women to be confident in whatever they wear.

“The stylist today tried to make me feel “less than” because he didn’t agree that I should wearย @forever21..well.. I FIRED him because NO ONE should make you feel “less than” because you have on a $40 outfit!!,” she wrote.

“You are AMAZING and don’t let ANYONE bully you into spending what you have.. or NOT..,” she added. “It doesn’t make you ANY LESS FABULOUS!! You make the clothes!! Your SPIRIT makes you!! EMBRACE YOU!! YOU ARE PERFECT!! NO MATTER WHAT!!

Braxton rocked the City of Angels Camo jumpsuit and a pair of suede Christian Louboutinย booties while appearing on Essence Live to promote her new (and final) studio album “Blue Bird Of Happiness”.

Honestly we liked the look and that she mixed high and low end labels so effortlessly. But thats just our two cents.
