It’s pretty much been the best year ever for the 12 Years a Slave actress. Only six months into 2014 and Lupita Nyong’O has so far won an Oscar, been named People magazine’s “Most Beautiful Woman in the World,” and has now landed the cover of fashion bible Vogue magazine.
The 31-year-old actress tweeted “This Summer, I am totally COVERED!,” with a picture from the shoot by photographer Mikael Jansson in Marrakech, Morocco.
The former Yale student who recently confirmed she’ll be appearing in the new Star Wars Episode VII film as well as a live-action version of The Jungle Book, wears Prada, Jonathan Saunders and Givenchy in the shoot and talks about her crazy year in the interview.
She says: “It just feels like the entertainment industry exploded into my life. People who seemed so distant all of a sudden were right in front of me and recognising me — before I recognised them!”
