Yes we all know Lupita has been rocking some of the most popular European and American brands to the many ceremonies, award shows and fashion shows she has been a guest at, but when it comes to representing fashion from African, her mum has a thing or two to teach the young star.
As Lupita made headlines strutting in her dress from the Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture collection, her mum, Mrs Dorothy Nyong’o, stole the show when she came out in a dress by Kenyan designer brand, KikoRomeo. She went extremely viral and is now the talk of the town amongst the African fashion world.
Lupita’s mother hit the red carpet with KikoRomeo’s Silk crepe de chine halter dress with Aso-ke trim and sea blue jacket as seen in the picture above. As we know celebrities are now walking advertisements and the more popular the celeb the higher the price, what Lupita will wear next is unknown for now and she might be out the budget of many African designers, but hopefully Dorothy will ‘Africanize’ her styling. ;)
