It's official. Our lady of the year, Lupita Nyong'o is slaying us all at the dressing-for-summer game.
We're fast approaching mid-Jude, and for us here in Britain, as usual, we're not sure we even know it yet. The calendar may say "June" but the weather is telling us a very different story. (I'm not bitter at all that I had to call of going into town today because of the rain/thunderstorm)
Now if you're lucky, you'll have thought ahead and booked a summer getaway to Spain or Greece or somewhere lovely. However, if you're like me, the only time you've thought about a holiday recently is when you're at your desk, papers falling all around you and phones ringing asking for people you've never even heard of - what a nightmare. Don't get me wrong, I'd love a holiday, but it's finding the time and money!
For now, I shall live vicariously through Lupita Nyong'o.
The 31-year-old Lancome Spokesmodel, Oscar winner and total stunner, Lupita, was spotted a few days ago on one of the lovely beaches of Maui soaking up the sun and enjoying a bit of free time just ahead of the Maui Film Festival.
Truly showing us how beachwear is done, Lupita donned a super chic scalloped white bikini with a silver belly chain, a straw sun hat, simple sparkling studs, and big tortoiseshell glasses (as if her toned bod and the fact she's in Maui wasn't enough to envy!)
This isn't the first time recently that Lupita has made us sigh; "I wish I had that outfit/why isn't that me?" Lest we forget her colourful number at the Maui Film Festival and her ever-so-classy outfit of choice for the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. (Loving the sun hats!)
Lupita Nyong'o has never been one to shy away from striking colours, and we love her for it! But this introduction to classic monochrome wardrobe is just as beautiful. So for Lupita we've got; Actor - check, Model - check, Spokeswoman - check, Yale Graduate - check, bilingual - check, Oscar Award Winner - check, fashion icon - check. Seriously guys, is there nothing this woman can't do?
Keep your eyes peeled For Lupita Nyong'o in the newest movie of the Star Wars saga - Star Was: Episode VII!
See you soon!
