American Vogue – “Grace Notes”
It is very rare for a newcomer to go and be a superstar overnight by winning an Oscar from her heartbreaking performance in a movie that ultimately won best picture in the same awards show. I’m talking about Lupita Nyong’o, the Kenyan-Mexican actor who captured everyone’s interest with her personality, her acting chops, her beauty and her interesting fashion choices that also cemented her status as a fashion icon. This editorial from American Vogue is titled “Grace Notes” and it shows Lupita looking graceful and elegant like a supermodel in fashions selected by Phyllis Posnick. Pieces from Jonathan Saunders, Proenza Schouler, Rodarte and many others. The images are lensed by photographer Mikael Jansson in Marrakech and are part of American Vogue’s July 2014 issue.
