Lupita Nyong’o is the October Vogue cover girl, and man does she look amazing in all these GORGEOUS dresses. The star knows how to wear couture but more than that- she doesn’t let the couture wear her.  Here are some snaps from the shoot and some snippets from her interview:

On fashion in Kenya: “salons were a big feature in my life. We would go every two weeks to get our hair braided, washed, or treated. That’s where I read American, British, and a few African magazines.Then I would design my own clothes. In Kenya it’s much cheaper to get clothes made than to buy them. We would have everything run up by a tailor, or my aunt Kitty, who is very creative, would sew things for me.”

On her father’s political career/tragedy: “I was definitely exposed to some extreme situations. Tragedy is something that I have known and that I have tried to accept as part of life. But I don’t dwell on it. . . . OK! I need to powder my nose!”

On winning her Oscar: “In Africa there is a nationalism that comes with things like winning an Oscar. It’s traditional to be welcomed and celebrated. Praise songs, which are the highest honor in Kenya, were sung for me, and they included lines from my Oscar speech.”
