Style Watch: Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita Nyong'o is geninuely surprised that she is a fashion icon. In an interview with Vulture Online, Lupita played it coy saying,  "You have to wear something to these events, so I wore things, and people took to them. It was not my agenda at all! But it's fun, and I'm flattered that everyone is digging my style. It's great to have something to dress up for. You know, I spent three years in slacks at drama school, so now I like putting a dress on." The Yale Drama School graduate and SAG Award Winner has become incredibly popular in a short time period because of her undeniable talent, impeccable style and humbleness. Today we are spotlighting some of our favorite looks from Lupita. Enjoy!

Lupita looks fab in this tan, one should dress by Stella McCartney.

Fashionably Warm

Lupita knows the glamour doesn't stop just because it is chilly outside. We love how she still brings the fab while keeping warm.

This Lanvin coat is so classic and glamorous it could be a dress by itself.
