There's no denying that 2014 is Lupita Nyong'o's year. It has been a year of firsts for Lupita. She snagged her first Oscar Award for her role as Pasty in "12 Years A Slave," she was named People Magazine's most beautiful early this year, she became the new face of Lancome Paris. Then the Hollywood new IT girl actress just landed her first Vogue cover!
Lupita will be featured on the July issue. The editorial was done by photographer Mikael Jansson, and the backdrop is Marrakech’s Ksar Char-Bagh resort. Mikael Jansson captured Lupita in so many fabulous designer pieces: Rodarte, Proenza Schouler, Givenchy, Jonathan Saunders, Prada, T by Alexander Wang and J. Crew in a nine-page spread that solidifies her position as a rising fashion icon.
