Lupita Nyong’o Stars in Miu Miu’s Spring/Summer 2014 Campaign
“Being considered a fashion star is wonderful,” the Mexico-born Nigerian actress told USA Today. “It’s definitely a bonus thing. It was in no way my agenda when I started.”
Photographed by Inez & Vinoodh, the Miu Miu ads also feature actresses Elle Fanning (Somewhere / Super 8), Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Macy May Marlene), and Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows). See more photos from the shoot below.
“Each set is as distinctive and striking as the young actresses themselves, walls in saturated shades of blue, red and violet accentuating the mixed prints and materials of the clothes, and multicoloured floorboards sweeping towards the camera at surreal angles…
The actresses’ poses, full of personality, convey their diverse points of view, effortlessly translating the new spirit of the Miu Miu woman.”
In addition to being the new face of Miu Miu, Lupita covers DuJour Magazine Winter 2013 and February 2014 issues of W Magazine and Dazed & Confused Magazine. Just a matter of time before a beauty brand jumps in the mix.
Her U.S. debut role as Patsey in Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave has earned her a New Hollywood Award from the 17th Hollywood Film Awards, more than 20 awards from Film Critics Associations for Best Supporting Actress, and over 20 current award nominations with several more pending.
Her next film, Non-Stop — which stars Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore, will be in theaters February 28th.
