Like an express train Lupita Nyong’o has blazed into town AKA global consciousness and is making more than a grand entrance with her fashion selections, her ability to rock EVERY color imaginable to man, her statuesque beauty and her Oscar-winning performance in 12 Years A Slave.

Ms. Nyong’o is Kenyan… and Mexican, born in Mexico to Kenyan parents, raised in Kenya and according to educated at Yale in the USA.


Lupita is a trendsetter. End of story. She keeps her TWA-with-a-fade fresh with accessories, parts and other coiffure ingenuity. Fashion-wise, with the deluge of TV appearances, movie press junkets, interviews, fashion week appearances and red carpet domination, Lupita has earned a growing following and lots of great friends along the way, including natural hair icon Tracee Ellis Ross of Girlfriends fame (below). She is the epitome of beauty and grace. So we’ll just take a minute to appreciate the awesomeness that is Lupita Nyong’o.

  1. The slavery drama 12 Years a Slave won the Academy Award for best picture, making history as the first movie from a black director to win the film industry’s highest honour in 86 years of the Oscars.
    I am so tired to Hollywood trying to make me feel bad about slavery that happened over 150 years ago, but guess what I don’t as the great great great grandson of slave owners that was their decision. Hollywood is always trying to rewrite history, slavery right or wrong at that time was a way of life. Its over get over it Hollywood.
