Lupita Nyong’o proves yet again why she is Hollywood’s “it” girl. From winning her first Oscar to landing her very first Vogue cover, it’s been a huge 2014 for the Kenyan beauty.
On Thursday morning, Vogue released the cover of their July issue and gracing the cover is the one and only, Nyong’o. The star, stunning in a printed, purple and red Prada dress, shows off her perfect figure and flawless looks while posing for the fashion mag. “Her Incredible Breakout Year,” the publication’s headline reads.
“I was really nervous about seeing myself in 12 Years a Slave because it had been such a profound experience in all ways,” Nyong’o told the magazine. “I remember it being one of the most joyful times in my life and also one of the most sorrowful. I didn’t want my experience to be a vain one. But I will say that when I watched it, my heartstrings were pulled so tight for Solomon that I couldn’t go into the ego trip. I cried, I mean, I was inconsolable. I wept for an hour after the movie.”
It was a year of firsts for the Yale graduate, who gained recognition after her role as Patsey in Steve McQueen’s, 12 Years a Slave. Not only was Lupita this year’s award season fashion darling, but she also won several awards for her role in the drama, was named People magazine’s “most beautiful,” became the first Black ambassador for Lancome and was recently cast in Star Wars: Episode VII.
