Lupita Nyong’o is American Vogue’s July 2014 cover girl. In the past five years of Vogue cover releases, we have never seen such a positive reaction to a cover debut. In fact, we haven’t been able to find a single negative word said about the actress and her elegant Vogue debut.
It’s not at all surprising that this positivity is in play. Lupita Nyong’o has been on the scene just a little over a year and she has won the hearts of many, including Anna Wintour, it would seem. Wearing a beautifully vibrant dress from Prada, Lupita Nyong’o is a breath of fresh air for Vogue, from cover to accompanying editorial. Shot in Marrakesh, this Vogue shoot will make you wonder why Lupita Nyong’o wasn’t scooped up long ago by model scouts.
Of course, Vogue aren’t the first to highlight this talented beauty. This is definitely the year of Lupita Nyong’o. She’s been named the new face of Lancome, scored a People’s Most Beautiful cover, and was even featured in Miu Miu’s campaign for SS14. In short, this fashion darling can do no harm.
