Another month, another fab editorial from Lupita Nyong’o. This time around the Kenyan actress poses for Vogue Italia and we see her at her most flippant and fierce to date in this editorial photographed Tom Munro and styled by Patti Wilson.
Meanwhile Lupita’s life in the fab lane continues as the it is reported that Brad Pitt is so blow away by the Oscar-nominated actress’s performance in Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave that he has made it his mission to mentor her and make her a fully fledged Hollywood star.
“He thinks she’s mesmerising on screen and wants to mentor her,” a source told Grazia magazine.
And of course Brad Pitt is not the only fan in high places of Lupita as the actress has already won critical acclaim for her role in the Oscar-nominated film but also the Best Supporting Actress at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards and Screen Actors Guild Award. She is also a firm favourite for the 86th Academy Awards taking place on Sunday 2 March.
