We should clarify something. I wish Lupita and I were dating. She's so talented and sweet and gorgeous and anyway I just don't know how to handle myself when someone brings her up.
Lupita Nyong'o is my favorite starlet who's name isn't recognized by auto correct. She's so lovely. She's graced the cover of Vogue multiple times and she read Vogue for filth in the most ladylike way when they suggested her hairstyle she wore to the Met Gala was inspired by Audrey Hepburn. I need lessons in her grace and poise.
Honestly, I'm obsessed with fashion's obsession with her. It's a well known fact that fashion's racist. Fashion for all it's beauty and intrigue, body shames, praises paleness, and their idea of diversity is one model of color in a sea of tall slender white girls.
The fact that they've embraced Lupita the way they have is great. Only time will tell if it inspires any real shifts in the culture. Naomi Campbell and Tyra Banks are staples, but that's hardly stopped fashion from rejecting black women as a whole. One shining example is not a true sign of change.
Lupita Nyong'o is one of the most talented actresses of this decade. She already won an Academy Award for her role in 12 Years A Slave. Most notably it spawned that meme of her sipping tea.
It's easy to say Lupita is the best, because she is the best. She's a phenomenal actress of a great caliber. The girl won a Tony in Eclipsed. I haven't seen the play, but from what I read she played a teenage orphan and from what I can tell this was her first trip to Broadway. The girl is batting 100 right now.
Knowing her age makes me feel a lot better about her relationship with Common. He's the rapper guy. He's like 44, I never got confirmation that they were dating. I want to say they look cute together, but he looks like someone's dad. Lupita is too young and pure to be dad her grandfather.
She's also been linked with Jared Leto. That is what is what is is. I'm hoping it's not true. I'm very protective of Lupita, if she decides to date someone, it needs to be good. I want her to marrying a billionaire shipping czar like Jackie Onassis.
And, if Lupita doesn't want a man, good for her. Men are shit and we don't need her getting wrinkles. I know she has the money for the botox, but why expend that time and the money when you don't have to.
