Seriously, Lupita Nyong’o is unstoppable. Last year was her breakout year and her trajectory is destined to be one reaching extraordinary heights.
From 12 Years a Slave starlet to Oscar winner and the belle of the red carpet, she has left everyone absolutely awestruck. In eight short months, she’s become America’s sweetheart and, most importantly, coined as fashion’s new “it” girl. Therefore, it was only right that after we spied Lupita front row at Calvin Klein’s New York Fashion Week show with editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine, Anna Wintour, that big thing were in the works for her with the magazine.
This morning (June 19), the fashion bible excitedly took to their website and social media handles to share that Nyong’o is the cover girl of their upcoming July 2014 issue. The Oscar winner stands posied and proud in a printed Fall 2014 RTW collection Prada dress, accentuating her petite frame and celebrating her global success.
The July 2014 issue will hit stands soon. Check out photos from the spread on the next few pages.
