Lupita Nyong’o Covers Vogue


Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o has scored her first American Vogue cover.

Lupita graces the July edition, dubbed their “Women to Watch” issue, wearing a colorful ensemble by fashion house Miu Miu.

Nyong’o, who will next be seen in the seventh edition of the Star Wars trilogy, was lensed by photographer Mikael Jansson last month in the beautiful city of Marrakesh.

According to Jansson, Lupita was very hands-on with her shoot and came to their first meeting with a Pinterest board full of ideas. Lupita called the website one of her favorites, saying she and her stylist routinely “troll the site for inspiration.”

Lupita’s cover is available on newsstands now and can also be purchased digitally via Google Play and the IOS App Store.


  1. Wow, what a beautiful shoot. I really didn’t like the cover shot, but the layout is fabulous…I like that she’s sharing that she has input in her styling, important for fashion misses and hits, and to remind people that she’s not just a commodity or trendy “it girl.” I believed she’s so grounded (family) that she will have longevity in this fickle industry. Congrats to Lupita, she’s warming hearts and her imagery is sheer magic and a balm.
