According to huffingtonpost.com, Lupita Nyong’o has accomplished another fashion feat. The ink has barely dried on her historic Lancôme Beauty Ambassador deal, and the Academy Award-winning star has landed one of Marie Claire’s five May covers, along with fellow actresses Elle Fanning, Kate Mara, Emilia Clarke and Elizabeth Olsen.
The actresses looked radiant Tuesday night in Hollywood while celebrating the glossy’s “Fresh Faces” issue. Both Elle and Kate opted for bold red-hued cocktail dresses, while Lupita turned heads in a light gray-and-blue floral embroidered Giambattista Valli frock. And Lupita’s showstopping look was further heightened by her fabulous new hairdo.
The 12 Years a Slave star has transformed her faded cut with a fake widow’s peak, Afro puffs, and dazzling headbands in the past. However, Tuesday night Lupita upped the ante by donning a faux mohawk/pompadour.
