Celebrity Crush: Lupita Nyong'o
Known for winning the Academy Award for her role in 12 Years a Slave, the lovely Kenyan Mexican actor Lupita Nyong'o has become a favorite for the press to feature. In Vogue's latest interview with her, we learn that she returns to her family's home in Kenya to celebrate the release of her latest movie, Queen Katwe. Her plan to use her breakout influences as a platform to tell African stories still untold is admirable and commendable.
We thought that there was no better way to follow up our celebrity crush than giving you a sneak peek of the imagery we used for our upcoming prints, inspired by both her Kenyan culture and prints from other parts of Africa that Lupita has brought home.
Colorful, intricately designed and not to be culturally appropriated but rather appreciated:
