Hollywood’s newest golden girl shines bright on the cover of Vogue’s July issue , and we are loving it! A lot has been said as regards Lupita’s recent entertainment success: some call her overrated,   others are happy for her( Like Me).  Well hold whatever thoughts you have, because she strikes again with Vogue solidly behind her. Everything in this months editorial further proves that Lupita is a force to reckon with, from her poses to her facial expressions and down to her figure perfect body, everything screams high fashion!

Lupita Nyong’o is cucumber-cool, as beautiful and hieratic as an ancient Egyptian statue of a cat goddess, dressed in Prada’s magenta Deco-print dress licked with silver that is dazzling against her luminous skin. Lupita instinctively falls into graceful attitudes; she can’t help herself. “She knows the camera, she knows her angles,” notes an approving Phyllis Posnick,Vogue’s Executive Fashion Editor, who, it should be noted, does not suffer fools gladly but is in some kind of awe of this particular subject.
