Kenyan actress who broke into the limelight for her classical role in ’12 Years A Slave’ celebrates an extra year in her life as she turns turned 39 years old with joy.
Lupita’s exceptional beauty and African features are still just as intact as the very first day she appeared on the big screen. The same admiration that scored the Kenyan Oscar-winning actress the ‘World’s Most Beautiful Person’ for 2014 by People magazine at the age of 31.
Lupita who also played a major role in the Black Panther Movie admitted she “never dreamed” she would be praised for her looks and find herself on the US weekly’s cover.
Having started her career as a model before getting on cinema screens, and having already signed on to SAKS last February as the face of the brand’s Spring 2022 Campaign, Lupita Nyong’o is no new persona to fashion.
Lupita Gets Covered By Sergio
She took the moment to celebrate her birthday yesterday with her fans in a well-tailored sea blue piece of suit composed of a cropped-top jacket and a flare-pleated bandeau dress. The dress was made by renowned designer and stylist Sergio Hudson.
Sergio is responsible for dressing many known popular figures such as Maria Borges, Kamala Harris, Michelle Obama, and many more. He was responsible for the viral outfit rocked by Michelle Obama during the inauguration of US president Joe Biden as seen below.
Lupita rocked the stunning dress alongside high crop topped jacket sharing with us the same adorable smile she did on the cover of people’s magazine. Styled by Micaela Erlanger. Her make up was executed by Nick Barose and her hair by Zenda Walker. See her celebrate with a dance in the video below.

UPCOMING TOP EVENTS!
Ghana’s leading fashion event Accra Fashion Week is scheduled for 7-11 December 2022 following their 5th-year celebration last year in 2021. Accra Fashion Week is a platform for African designers that can be compared to fashion weeks across the major capitals. It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
However, rest assured that 2022 is going to be even more exciting with greater performances and an upgraded designer collection. FashionGHANA.com is sure to bring you the exclusives we did on www.FashionGHANA.com/TV. All last year’s shows are available to watch on youtube. Designer’s registration is ongoing on the AccraFashionWeek.org website.
As we embark on another year of celebrating African culture, our theme for 2022 is “Afrofuturism.” This term was created to explore the developing intersection of cultural aesthetic, philosophy of science, and philosophy of history as it relates to the African Diaspora. During this year’s events, Afrochella will bring “Afrofuturism” to life through fashion, food, art and music. In 2019, the African Diaspora returned home to the continent for the “Year of Return.” This year, we will explore the endless possibilities of what “Afrofuturism” could look like in 2022 and beyond.
