Looking for a Role Model? Look no further.

 Lupita Nyong’o is an Oscar winner, face of Miu Miu and now adding Vogue cover to her repertoire. What makes her so inspiring? The 31 year old actress has done it all.  

After graduating Hampshire College with a bachelor degree in theater arts, she worked in the field of film and earned her chops doing small rolls. She later went on to get her master’s degree from Yale school of drama. If you haven’t seen her in films like “12 year slave” or “Non stop” you need to go rent them now! She’s dabbled in music, production, and our favorite subject Fashion!  Her simple yet elegant fashion sense is making her a style icon. She is a rising star and we are bound to see her gracing more covers. Lupita said in regards to her Lancôme campaign; "I am particularly proud to represent its unique vision for women and the idea that beauty should not be dictated, but should instead be an expression of a woman's freedom to be herself."

We couldn't agree more here at UrbanOG with her words.  Anything we choose to wear should help us express who we are, how we feel and be fun!
