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.
