Your diva has unveiled a new and exciting style persona for you. Gentlefolk, may we present to you, Miss Lupita Nyong’o, Children’s Book Author.
Far be it for these two ancient queens to opine on any children other than the Legendary kind, but we’re pretty sure we remember enough of our own long-distant childhoods to assert that if this vision walked into our kindergarten class and told us she wanted to read us a story, we’d be completely and utterly transfixed and dazzled. The style is deliberately bright, bold, and a little naive. It never veers strictly into Barbie territory. The shades and headwrap make sure of that. And she’s one of the few celebrity people who can work that trendy, super-saturated lemon yellow, but that’s no real surprise.
And not for nothing, but girlfriend is one hell of a pro at posing with the product while walking down the street and making it look like the most charming and normal thing in the world. We really want to try that when our book comes out but we’re pretty sure we’d look like idiots.
