Lupita Nyong’o attended the ‘Queen of Katwe’ premiere looking gorgeous in her Elie Saab purple gown—and her head wrap was fantastic. I love it. Lupita had another victory last week—her third Vogue cover. The actress told the mag, “I want to create opportunities for other people of color because I’m fortunate enough to have a platform to do that. That is why Eclipsed and even Queen of Katwe are so important, to change the narrative, offer a new lens on African identity,” she told Vogue.
Lupita traveled home to Kenya to shoot the cover, photographed by Mario Testino.
