Lupita Nyong’o Stuns on the Cover of Vanity Fair

Lupita Nyong’o is Vanity Fair’s October star and she is killing it on the cover and inside! The Oscar-winning actress looks lovely in neon green and yellow for the stunning shot and the fire looks don’t stop there!

“First @VanityFair cover is green lit! 💚 #BrightnessIsJustWhoYouAre #Sulwe,” Lupita wrote, sharing photos from the spread.

Lupita spoke to the mag about her versatile résumé of roles, her upbringing, and the significance of “Black Panther.” She said of the film, “I think it’s more common in America to hear of the struggle of black people than it is to hear of the success. It’s more of a sensation to have a headline about a struggle, you know? ‘Lupita Shunned by People for Her Hair Texture.’ The struggle through having dark skin is clickbait. So when ‘Black Panther’ came along... it was so refreshing to work on an African narrative that did not lead with the struggle of being African.”

She even signed on to the project without reading a script!

As for deciding on roles? She explained, “When I choose projects, I want to have faith that as an artist it will speak to a time when it is needed as much as it speaks to me at the time that I make it.”
