Lupita Nyongo covers Vogue Magazine

This time the Oscar winning actress was followed by the fashion bible to her homeland of Kenya for an incredible colourful and printastic shoot. Lupi looks striking on the cover looking undeniably African as she declares that, “she wants to create opportunities for people of colour”.

And she does that! Vogue is notoriously hardlined when it comes to what goes into their magazine so it was refreshing to see that in the sea of Chanel, Givenchy, Roberto Cavalli, Missoni, Prada and Phillip Lim pieces she rocked for the spread, she also repped African designers, rocking a Duro Olowu coat and a handkerchief dress from Ghanaian designer Kiki Clothing.

The “African print” themed shoot also features her grandmother, parents and women from her village of Luo.
