Lupita Nyong'o in "12 Years a Slave"

Actress, Lupita Nyong'o

Pictured above is Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong'o. Here she is at the Toronto International Film Festival this past weekend for her role in the Steve McQueen film 12 Years a Slave (2013). She plays a slavegirl Patsey in the movie, alongside Hollywood superweights Chewetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, and Brad Pitt. Aside from being a formidable up-and-coming actress, we couldn't be prouder of Lupita in this embellished PRADA gown and Raso Stone clutch. The soft white sheath dress (effortlessly worn and elegantly covering what I know to be an incredible body) offsets her glowing complexion and short hair. 

Once they get into the spotlight, it usually takes new actresses time to understand their style game; many fumble at first with red carpet experiences (usually without the help of a Stylist) that later become material for the humiliating portion of their E! True Hollywood Story. But Lupita has nailed it here. I don't think Kenya could be more honoured by this highly dignified representation of ourselves. God knows we need it.
