Lupita Nyong’o has found her way into our hearts not only as a bonafide fashionista and this seasons “It” girl, the Yale graduate can now add Oscar winner to her list of accomplishments. Lupita won in the best supporting actress category for her portrayal as Patsey in 12 Years A Slave.
Nyong’o was breathtaking on the red carpet with her custom made Prada gown in a beautiful shade that she referred to as Nairobi blue indicating that the hue reminded her of her native Kenyan home.
If you were not already in love with Lupita for her graciousness and savvy fashion sense, her acceptance speech definitely would win you over . “Thank you for putting me in this position. It has been the joy of my life. When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid.”
