Lupita Nyong'o for Marie Claire

Awards season may have concluded, but Lupita Nyong’o is still slaying glossy covers with her impeccable style. This month, the Oscar winner is rocking ready-to-wear spring dresses for Marie Claire and reflecting on the attention surrounding her beauty.

“Being called gorgeous is not a bad thing! But at the same time, I don’t want to thrive on people’s opinions of me,” she says. “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.”
