Editorial: Lupita Nyong’o for Glamour Magazine’s December’14 Issue

Kenyan actress, Lupita Nyong’o might’ve seemed M.I.A for a little while now, but she’s resurfaced to grace the cover of Glamour US Magazine’s December’14 issue celebrating the Glamour 2014 Women of the Year.

In an accompanying interview for the shoot, Lupita discusses her acting abilities, as well as her influences growing up, saying;

“Oprah played a big role in my understanding of what it meant to be female and to really step into your own power. I wouldn’t even call her a role model; she was literally a reference point. You have the dictionary, you have the Bible, you have Oprah.”

The star also revealed how she feels about her impact and contribution to the industry – oft dubbed as “The Lupita Effect” – saying;

“I’ve heard people talk about images in popular culture changing, and that makes me feel great, because it means that the little girl I was, once upon a time, has an image to instill in her that she is beautiful, that she is worthy… Until I saw people who looked like me, doing the things I wanted to, I wasn’t so sure it was a possibility. Seeing Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah in The Color Purple, it dawned on me: “Oh—I could be an actress!” We plant the seed of possibility.”

Lensed by Tom Munro, Lupita is styled into pretty, printed pieces by Christopher Kane and Miu Miu with a distinct ’60s twist, including a multi-coloured floral dress to blue-hued dresses embellished around the neck. Team SPICE also loves the white cover ensemble, which is adorned by a glittering set of over-sized earrings.
