Style Crush: Lupita Nyong'o



I have a major style crush on Lupita Nyong'o. She has seriously shown out for every single red carpet she has graced, magazine she has covered, and appearance she has made since becoming the breakout (and now Academy Award winning!) actress from 12 Years A Slave. She is always perfectly tailored, with a flawless beauty look and wonderfully coiffed natural hair, making her style and makeup infinitely swoon worthy. Her image is everywhere, and it's not one that I can imagine getting tired of very soon. 

One of the things that makes Lupita's style stand out the most is that she fully embraces bright and vibrant colors, both in her wardrobe and in her beauty looks, pairing them with a megawatt smile to match. You just can't help but feel like something wonderful must be happening whenever she is around.

Not only is Lupita's style inspiring, her sweet spirit is inspiring as well. I almost cried right along with her when she accepted her Oscar this past Sunday night, and her inspiring words have been spreading like wildfire throughout social media ever since. That is serious star power. 

Whose style are you currently crushing on?
