Lupita Nyong’o Stands Boldly In Kenya On The Cover of Vogue

lupita-nyongo-vogue

In all of her melanin, the beautiful and talented Lupita Nyong’o graces the cover of Vogue right in her homeland of Kenya photographed by Mario Testino.

As the official shoot is based off of bold colors, glorious prints and majestical looks, Lupita wears fashionable and culturally inspired pieces by Roberto Cavalli, Chloé, Christian Louboutin, Phillip Lim, Duro Olowu, Zac Posen, Akris and more.

Above, pictures a joyous moment with her parents (left): father, Senator Peter Anyang’ Nyong’o, who represents the country of Kisumu, and her mother, Dorothy Nyong’o, the Managing Director of the African Cancer Foundation. To the right, Lupita sits with her paternal 96-year-old grandmother, Dorca who built a dormitory for orphaned and disadvantaged schoolgirls.

During the exclusive interview, Lupita says:

“There are certain cards that have been dealt me that I take on. I want to create opportunities for other people of color because I’m fortunate enough to have a platform to do that. That is why Eclipsed and even Queen of Katwe are so important, to change the narrative, offer a new lens on African identity.”

About her skin color vs. the industry vs. growing up:

“The European sense of beauty affects us all. I came home from college in the early two-thousands and saw ads on TV with a girl who can’t get a job. She uses this product. She gets her skin lighter. She gets the job. The lording of lighter skin is a common thing growing up in Nairobi. Being called ‘black mamba.’ The slow burn of recognizing something else is better than you.”
