Lupita Nyong'o Dons Prada for Vogue Cover Debut
The fashion industry darling makes her Vogue debut in the July issue, shot by Mikael Jansson in Marrakech. Bravo.
Lupita Nyong'o is undeniably slaying 2014. Already, the year has brought her a supporting actress Oscar for her major feature debut in 12 Years a Slave, a massive casting announcement in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII and a brand ambassador post at Lancome, among other highlights—and now, a Vogue cover.
The fashion industry darling makes her Vogue debut in the July issue, glowing in a printed Prada dress and shot by Mikael Jansson in Marrakech.
The editorial spread features the actress around the exclusive Ksar Char-Bagh resort, as she's shown dancing in the lobby while wearing a Vera Wang Collection copper trapeze dress, and glamorously lounging in a Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci marigold bodysuit while atop a balance ball next to the rooftop pool. She's also snapped while shopping in spice stalls in a Proenza Schouler flock-printed cutout dress, smiling with locals in a Jonathan Saunders check-and-floral printed dress, gorgeously relaxing in a Rodarte metallic lace dress with sequins, staring at a snake while wearing a T by Alexander Wang knit top, and sitting on set in a J.Crew swimsuit.
And one breathtaking shot of the fashion spread has her soaking in a rose-filled bathtub at the hotel El Fenn, wearing a Janis by Janis Savitt silver cuff on her wrist while a pair of Prada red satin heels sit unbuckled on the floor. Bravo.
