When I saw 12 Years a Slave last winter I was immediately mesmerized by Lupita Nyong’o. What a performance! I loved Steve McQueen’s film so much that I saw it in theaters twice, which is a lot for a film that’s so unbelievably horrific and dismal. At both viewings I thought to myself: “who is this woman?”
How can an actor already be iconic after less than one year in the public eye? I’m not sure, but there’s no doubt that she already is.
Lupita Nyong’o graced this month’s cover of Vogue and in this video produced by the posh fashion magazine she proves once again that she’s the coolest girl ever.
