Never out of style – please meet Lupita Nyong’o 初露尖角的时尚宠儿——露皮塔•尼永奥
ON THE STAGE AND OUT, ALWAYS COOL. 台上台下，一样时髦。
I personally adore her. On the screen – she was Patsy, slave girl, in Steve Mc Queen’s 12 Years a Slave – at events and fashion shows – last time, sitting at Dior’s first row wearing a silk print top, skinny black pants and high heels – and on magazines – the last editorial on Vogue America in October saw the girl dancing in Paris’ Musee Picasso in a Valentino Haute Couture dress.
我很喜欢露皮塔•尼永奥。在Steve Mc Queen的获奖影片《为奴十二年》里她扮演Patsy，一个奴隶；在各种时尚活动中，她是备受宠爱的新星。在Dior刚结束的大秀中，坐在秀场前排的露皮塔，身着丝绸印花上衣，黑色铅笔裤搭配高跟鞋，整体造型简洁优雅。而在十月美国版的Vogue杂志上，我们再次见到露皮塔时，她又化身Valentino女郎，身着品牌高定，在毕加索美术馆里翩翩起舞。
She is always so right in every situation – the right attitude, mostly a smile, the right hairstyle & make up, the right dress and the right accessories. It’s not easy to be under the spotlights all the time, but she never fails to impress.
Born in Messico City, Lupita was raised in Kenya and went to school in the US, where she got her Master Degree from Yale School of Drama. Amazing actress, and Oscar-winning for Best supporting actress in 2013, Lupita is now collaborating with fashion houses, glossy magazines and make up giants. In 2014 she was chosen for Miu Miu’s spring campaign and was also announced to be the new face for Lancome. In the same year she appeared twice on the cover of Vogue America – July and October.
And Lupita has always used her media power to empower black women and make them feel beautiful. In 2014, at the Essence Black Women in Hollywood luncheon, she gave a speech on the beauty of women and talked about the insecurities she had as a teenager – her views changed when she saw supermodel Alek Wek become successful. She mentioned receiving the following letter from a girl she had inspired in turn:
更加让我钦佩的是，露皮塔不遗余力地利用自己名人的力量激励更多黑人女性发掘自己的美。 2014年，在美国 Essence杂志举办的“好莱坞黑人女星”午宴上，露皮塔发表演讲：说起自己对女性美的看法时，露皮塔提起自己还是个小女孩时，因为自己的皮肤颜色感到不安，焦虑；而黑人模特Alek Wek成功故事给了自己很大的启发，帮助她成长地更加自信、美丽、成熟。她的美和积极的态度正在影响更多人。有一个女孩曾经给露皮塔写信道：
“I was just about to buy Dencia’s Whitenicious cream to lighten my skin when you appeared on the world map and saved me.”
《就在我准备买 Dencia’s 的美白霜时在世界地图上看到了你，我看到你那么自信和美丽，让我敢于正视自己，接受自己。》
And while we all wait for Star Wars: The Force Awakens to hit the movies, please enjoy this gallery about the inspiring Lupita and get inspired – Christmas is around the corner and we can’t make style faux pas!
