Lupita Nyong’o delivered a heartbreaking performance in awards season darling 12 Years A Slave — a role for which she has been receiving a number of accolades — but she has also been a regular feature on Best Dressed lists for the amazing looks she has worn on various red carpets! In New York‘s Spring Fashion issue, she tells the mag that she feels “stressed but blessed” with all the fervor surrounding her. She seems to be handling it with incredible grace! See below for more on her appearance in the issue.
Lupita Nyong’o Wears Stella McCartney On ‘New York’ Magazine Cover
In a gorgeous red-and-white patterned Stella McCartney dress, Lupita is as beautiful as ever with a fresh face and a bold red lip on the mag’s cover photo.
It’s so refreshing to hear from an actress as humble as Lupita herself. On her sudden fame, she said that, “There are so many highlights that are no longer highlights. I’m living a very swollen life,” and that she “couldn’t have dreamed this up.” She is a total class act.
’12 Years A Slave’ Director Steve McQueen On Lupita Nyong’o: He ‘Rubbed [His] Eyes In Disbelief’ After Seeing Her Audition Tape
The piece gathers a lot of comments from Lupita’s co-stars who only have fabulous things to say. Her 12 Years A Slave director Steve McQueen, for example, said that, after seeing Lupita’s audition tape, he “just kind of rubbed [his] eyes in disbelief and needed someone else to confirm what [he] was seeing.” Wow! High praise.
Sarah Paulson told the mag that “The only way […] to keep your feet screwed into the ground is to stay close to yourself. And [Lupita is] wise to do it. There is a reserve there, a wariness. She ain’t no dummy.” We agree!
