Lupita Nyong’o is campaigning hard. She and all the cast of 12 Years a Slave are hunting the Oscar.
I first saw Lupita featured on one of my favorite red carpet’s blog : Red Carpet Fashion Awards. I didn’t know who she was and what she was doing on the 12 Years A Slave red carpet but I was floored by her style and natural beauty. I couldn’t wait till another of my favorite fashion blog Tom & Lorenzo , would start featuring her as well. They finally did, and just confirmed what we already knew: her style is flawless, her makeup is flawless and she’s just beautiful!
Oscar Campaign Strategy #1 : Being universally beloved
[Lupita Nyong’o] is someone who emerged, a revelation, a discovery, a major new talent. She delivers an extraordinary performance in 12 Years A Slave. She’s thoughtfully navigated her first major press and award circuit. She’s become a red carpet star. She’s smart and patient in an industry that rewards impetuous fools._LaineyGossip.com
Hopefully this will help her get her name out there and, maybe, a nomination and a win at the 2014′s Academy Awards? It will also help that her co-actors have nothing but praise for her.
And then maybe this can get followed by a Vogue cover? I saw her get chummy-chummy with Anna Wintour at the 2013 Museum Of Modern Art Film benefit, “A Tribute To Tilda.“ It’s been a while since a WOC has been on a US Vogue Cover and Anna Wintour doesn’t seem keen on featuring Kerry Washington, even after three seasons of Scandal, relegating her to Canadian Flare or UK Vogue.
Her style is pretty badass too !
So everyone, let’s start a prayer circle! Maybe my dreams will come true!
