Lupita Nyong’o Covers Elle UK January 2016 Issue

ELLE_UK_January_Cover-510x677

The black and beautiful Lupita Nyong’o covers Elle Magazine UK January 2016 issue. This beauty looks amazing on the cover. I love her hair and makeup, and her Louis Vuitton outfit looks stunning. This Lancôme’s first-ever black ambassador is like a breath of fresh air, I love everything she represents and I am super excited to see her on Elle cover.

I remember Lupita Nyong’o from her Shuga Days (an African series), and I am so proud for all what she has achieved in such a short time. For a woman who was once told she was too dark for Hollywood, and would never make it as an actress, only for her to go on to win her Oscar for 12 Years A Slave in January last year, and to become a household name, and a force to reckon with in the entertainment industry, she has done pretty well for herself.

If you turn on the television and you are not represented on that television, you become invisible to yourself. And there was very little of myself that I saw on TV, or in the movies that I was watching, or in magazines that were lying around the salons or around the house. And so these are subconscious things. Yes, Western beauty standards are things that affect the entire world. And then what happens? You’re a society that doesn’t value darker skin.’

 

I must confess I didn’t take to Lupita at first. I was not so impressed with her in the movie – 12 Years A Slave (I preferred the other black woman with the kids), but her drive and determination to succeed inspires me. She is the real deal.

I will be picking up a copy of this issue, I can’t wait to read all what Lupita Nyong’o has to say. The ‘How To Shop The Sale’ and ‘Do You Have The Superwoman Syndrome’ features also look like a good read. I can always trust the Elle Team to deliver on each issue.

What do you think of the cover? Are you a fan of Lupita? Sound off in the comment section, let’s talk.

Thanks for reading. Have a great week.

For her final look, Eleasha is wearing a Dresslink cape, Dondup jeans, Zara shoes and Proenza Schouler bag. This is my favourite look of her. I love the mix of colours, well styled and the pose is giving me life. Great outfit.

 

I love Eleasha’s style, I love the way she mixes high-end accessories with high street pieces. It makes sense to spend a bit more on your shoes and bags as they are usually meant to last you a lifetime, if you care for them properly, and our fashion diva seems to have loads of investment accessories. I would love to raid her wardrobe, lol. Her style game is epic, I love it.

What do you think of her style? Which is your favourite look of her? Drop me a comment, let’s chat.

You can see more of Eleasha’s style on her fashion blog – www.duchessoffashion.co.uk

Thanks for reading and have a great week.
