Lupita is all things! She has a dancer’s grace, a Thespian’s gravitas, and other fancy words to describe her indescribable beauty. This is what I want to say when I look at Lupita: HOW? HOW, INDEED! She is a rare find, and we’re so lucky to have her, someone who can invoke emotion and a swoon through just an image, who also moves us in film. I think she’s the next Cate Blanchett, moving us with every presentation. Perfection.

These images, shot for the October issue of US Vogue, shot by Mert & Marcus, are stunning because Lupita is stunning, but also because she wears couture fashion effortlessly – she looks like she’s having fun and delighting in every piece. She’s fun to watch, and it’s obvious in this spread that the photographers had fun with the model. What an amazing shoot. I don’t want to look away.

Last night was like a flashback to our hard drives from 2002 with some old favorites like Salma Hayek, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Kate Hudson and Naomi Watts, plus some of our new favorites like Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong’o and Lana Del Rey.  Though the overall look was kinda dullsville, there were a few that managed to take a risk and thusly stood out in the parade of pastel column dresses.   Amy Adams was in Versace, Naomi Watts in Gucci, Diane Kruger – Emilia Wickstead, Emily Blunt – Michael Kors, Tina Fey – Antonio Berardi, Amy Poehler – Stella McCartney, Jessica Chastain – Atelier Versace, Julianne Moore – Givenchy, Ruth Wilson – Prada and Kate Hudson in Versace.

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.
