Lupita Nyong’o has been magazine cover galore, and Gist cannot help but to acknowledge the Kenyan actress for her multiple appearances. Following her Oscar win for her film debut, in 12 Years a Slave, Lupita covered Glamour Magazine’s November issue in 2014, while being named Woman of the Year. Looking back at March of 2015, Nyong’o was featured on the cover of Lucky Magazine for their Spring Fashion issue. Not to mention, she was the face of Vogue for the second time this past October! Now, Nyong’o slays the January 2016 cover for Elle UK. Lupita is definitely reformulating beauty and prosperity between her thriving melanin, unique wardrobe, and landing huge roles.
The 31-year-old Academy award winner can soon be spotted playing the role of Maz Kanata in the new Star Wars film expected to hit theaters on December 18th, 2015.
Continue to slay, Lupita! We cannot wait to see what else you have in store.
