The amazing Lupita Nyong’o has been on our minds since her heart-wrenching performance as Patsey in the critically acclaimed movie 12 Years a Slave. We will be keeping tabs on this gorgeous Kenyan natural as she slays the red carpet and takes home multiple awards. We hope that you are as inspired by this incredible lady as we are!

Lupita captured the hearts of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Patsey in 12 Years a Slave which won the award for Best Picture. N’yongo beat out Jennifer Lawrence, June Squibb, Sally Hawkins and Julia Roberts. So queue up Beyonce’s- “Flawless” on the ipod and let’s toast to this magnificent talented beauty.

Intelligent, full of grace, physically beautiful, and an advocate for those with albinism in her homeland of Kenya, how can one not be enamored with her? =) I do want that skin.…perhaps I will be tanning this summer, lol…for real doe!

This older lady told me flat-out I was too dark to wear that red. I was dumbstruck…because I hadn’t grown up in a colorstruck household and hadn’t spend lots of time around colorstruck people.

YASSS. It’s wonderful seeing her beauty being celebrated. Esp since we have similiar ethnic features. I cant explain it, it’s not the fact that she has dark beautiful skin and what not. But similar facial structure, big round eyes, round forehead, button nose, thick lips, pointed chin which is the typical east african look (among africans, usually americans think east africa is just the somalia/ethopia region) but i’m speaking esp of Kenya/Uganda/Tanzania. I often look at other celebs and while they are beautiful, i sometimes get tempted to not find myself being viewed as beautiful. For example, looking at a… Read more »

I love how simply Lupita’s style is. Unfortunately the trend is to pile on “youtube tutorial” style makeup which can sometimes distort and not enhance natural beauty. People like Nene Leakes who are beautiful think the more hair you add, the more makeup you have, the more laid your hair is then you are beautiful. I wish ladies would believe in their natural beauty and not use makeup and hair to camouflage it.

Lupita Nyong’o is such an amazing woman. Its a shame that Vanity Fairs recent manipulation of her image misses the point director Steve McQueen so brilliantly emphasised by casting this natural beauty as the leading woman of his instant classic ‘12 Years a Slave’.

I’ve been working on and plan to release a feature length film this year on this and related topics about beauty from an African perspective.

You can catch the trailer at;

I hope you enjoy it and help spread the word.

wow i would find this extremely interesting, because i’ve always wondered what various cultures in Africa deem beautiful. Growing up in the US i’ve got a pretty good idea of what Americans esteem so far as beauty goes, but it would be refreshing to see beauty through a different lens. thanks for doing this!

Actually, Lupita’s kind of beauty is not necessarily deemed beautiful in Africa — short natural hair, dark skin. There’s a lot of skin-bleaching, non-natural hair, particularly in the cities. I think that what Americans esteem beautiful is what a lot of Africans esteem beautiful as well. Therefore she is a breath of fresh air.

while there are people who bleach their skin in africa, i’d say women are found beautiful regardless of their skin tone for the most part, that’s my experience growing up in Kenya. Just a handful color-struck individuals judge beauty according to skin color. Esp seeing that most of the population is what the United States would consider darksin (see Gabrielle Union)

I’m so happy to see her working the carpet this season! One because she looks amazing and I like to just look at her, but also because she is a dark, natural black woman who is succeeding and is such a good example of being classy and yourself. It’s kind of silly maybe, but when I read articles on mainstream news sites about her and the comments section is flooded with compliments on her skin and style and poise, I feel kind of proud because it’s one more step toward dispelling bad myths about black women.

Well, it would depend on how those things are decided in Mexico. For instance, being born in London doesn’t automatically make you British if your family is from elsewhere. Most places are not like the US where being born here makes you a citizen.

Her father was a diplomat/politician who was lecturing a university in Mexico. Having diplomatic status completely negates any citizenship ties to the country of birth. That is true for the children of all diplomats. If you are the child born in another country to a member of the foreign service/diplomat/military (no matter what country) you are automatically given the citizenship of the country that your parents represent. That means that even though she was born in Mexico she holds no citizenship ties to Mexico. Moreover, she and her family moved back to Kenya when she was very, very young. Culturally… Read more »

Technically, this article isn’t wrong. She WAS born in Mexico. However, it gives the perception that she’s Mexican. She isn’t. She was only born in Mexico b/c, according to Wikipedia, her father was a visiting lecturer in political science in Mexico City at the time she was born. They moved back to Kenya before she was a year old. If your parents are American and you’re born while they’re visiting Ethiopia, and move back to the U.S. after a few months, that doesn’t make you Ethiopian.

Before everybody starts going HAM for Mexican birth rights, and spouting claims like they are the worldwide authority on global citizenship issues, a little research on Mexican nationality rights, would go a long way. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mexican_nationality_law according to wiki, she’s Mexican.

If that was the case then nationality wouldn’t be important ‑it wouldn’t matter-she may see herself as Kenyan but that doesn’t take her birthright of being Mexican away.
I think a lot of people would agree with your perception because many Americans have families born in another country but they still see their self as an American-to not regard someones place of birth is somewhat ignorant.

Saying she’s Mexican born is so random and misleading, considering that she grew up in Kenya, she’s Kenyan blood, and her family is Kenyan. A Mexican reporter tried HARD to get her to claim Mexico, lol, and she basically said…uh.….I’m Kenyan. lol. She’s a Kenyan gem, and should be recognized as such.

When Mexicans and Latinos from South America immigrate to the United States illegally and have children we don’t consider there children to be “American”. So if ethnicity and race is a pick and choose on when we want it to mean one thing over another then it’s solely up to what that person believes and says they are.

Lol, I think you’d be a mermaid! …I couldn’t resist adding some humor to this because she’s clearly not ethnically Mexican.

Nope Laura, you’re a beautiful free spirit!

In fact, I’ll go a step further and give you your own “theme song”. How about Deniece Williams’ classic, “Black Butterfly”?? ;o)

She said she’s Mexican herself, a proud Mexican at that…why is there even a debate about this??

Not that this hasn’t been debated ad nauseum by now, but I’d like to give my opinion regarding Lupita’s nationality. If Lupita was not famous, there is no way that Mexico would want to claim her, but now that she’s on the red carpet, there is a debate? Anywho, I have read some comments from people who are presumably African-American, presumably descended from African-Americans for a number of generations, who hold the belief that place of birth is so paramount that it must be mentioned along with, if not before, someone’s heritage. (No offense intended, so please don’t take offense).… Read more »

Lupita is a Kenyan Luo, according to Luo customs she takes after the fathers bloodline and is a Luo- Kenyan, but according to the world she is Mexican, African customs don’t matter? I am tired of the world looking down on us as if we are inferior and our customs do not matter. This is the first time a Kenyan and a black African actress has been nominated for an Oscar. Is the rest of the world only comfortable with civil war and poverty that we cannot be allowed to shine? If she was a child dying in a civil… Read more »

If she was a child dying in a civil war, no way would she have been referred to as Mexican.” I’ve been thinking the same thing myself. The media doesn’t keep saying “Canadian-born Justin Bieber,” “Australian-born Cate Blanchett,” each time there’s a news item about them. She went back to Kenya when she was less than 12 months old!

Thank you for this. I have been trying to say the same thing. I am Kenyan and I also do feel insulted with the media and some Mexicans trying to claim her as their own. Until Lupita says she is Mexican, she remains Kenyan. She always says she is Kenyan but was born in Mexico. She has never said she is Mexican.

Does anyone notice that her hairline changes from photo to photo? She had a “widow’s peak” done on her forehead.

I had no idea that a TWA was this versatile! A bit embarrassed that my main style is a puff.

She’s having some sort of reaction to all the make up she’s had to wear lately, her skin has been looking rough. But left to it’s own devices I’m sure it would return to the perfection that is common with dark skinned Africans.

I loved the dress and liked the hair style, didn’t favor the orange-toned lip or muted eye — but that’s me, I always want Black women to go “live” with color instead of stay safe. Wish I could see the shoes.….

I understand some of the dissent.…however this may be a cultural misunderstanding. Just my perspective.… In some western countries, North America for instance, we tend to be more politically correct about national/ethnic identity to avoid presumption (i.e. being Canadian or American doesn’t auto-designate ‘White Anglo-Saxon Protestant’) until we know a person’s preference. Publicly we keep in line with the idea of national and cultural inclusiveness, separate from race/ethnicity, religion. Noting someone’s birthplace or their secondary culture is NOT necessarily an attempt to dismiss these things. It’s been an unsolved question for centuries and an ongoing challenge that goes beyond this… Read more »

She is beautiful and talented, it’s so refreshing to see a woman of color not ashamed of her hair by hiding it under wigs and weaves. I’m a fan!! Her mother taught her to be proud of herself as she is and that’s a blessing!!

I really do love lupita style,i think through all her apparences on the red carpet i only dislike just one dress but all the dresses that she wore were all excellent choices.The colors were perfect.

I love the Givenchy brown dress… it is so elegant and flawless look.

I just hope that she will last in this industry because it is a taugh one but i believe sincerely she will.

God Bless
