Lupita Nyong'o, the 30-year-old, Mexican-born, Kenyan actress seems to be the current "it" girl in the media. Hollywood favors lighter-skinned actresses, but Lupita's success with 12 Years a Slave and her personal style are illuminating.

Her beauty and indisputable sense of style has fashion designers clamoring to clothe her. Her gorgeous, dark-chocolate skin tone being featured on magazine covers has women around the world celebrating. She was chosen as one of the faces for Miu Miu's Spring 2014 campaign, alongside Elizabeth Olsen, Elle Fanning and Bella Heathcote.
Lupita made her American film debut in Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave (2013), as Patsey for which she received critical acclaim. For her role Lupita went on to be nominated for the Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild, BAFTA and Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. She will also be featured in Liam Neeson's upcoming film Non-Stop.
