Appealing, alluring, confident, stimulating

Made popular by Justin Timberlake, the phrase “I’m Bringing Sexy Back” has often had me wondering what it actually means to bring sexy back….Ladies, I don’t know about you but I want to feel, rather than just being sexy at all times! Walking the red carpet is the “mecca” for anything related to couture and style. Indeed it’s the grand haven for celebs to showcase their latest fashion choices and for seasoned spectators to view the most appealing looks, or in this case, cutting edge clothes.

Mexican born Kenyan actress Ms. Lupita Nyong’o

Is setting the record straight and answering all the questions about what classy is, what classy looks like, and what classy does this year. She has been blazing the red carpet and the fashion scene, setting it on fire with hot and spicy looks that scream of sheer elegance.

What is it about Lupita Nyong’o that is oh so appealing? Is it her chic fashion choices around Hollywood, New York, Toronto’s movie circuit? Is it her smooth chocolate skin? Or could it be her confidence which captures hearts of those she encounters, and those who watch from afar? It just might be all of the above.

4Best dressed at the Golden Globes in Ralph Lauren

The Yale Drama School graduate lead the way on the red carpet, at the Golden Globes in a red Ralph Lauren cape gown. She quickly followed that winning look at the 2014 SAG Awards, by wearing a stunning teal Gucci gown with 3D flower embroidery that revealed her gorgeous figure and complimented her complexion oh so well (seen above)!

Lupita Nyong’o received a standing ovation, led by none other than Ms. Oprah Winfrey, as she walked to the platform to receive her award for Best Supporting Actress, at the 2014 Critics Choice Awards, for her role in the esteemed movie 12 Year’s A Slave. All eyes were glued to her as she humbly accepted her award in an all white cut out gown by Calvin Klein.

Winning the Critics Choice Award

This starlet’s style choices show that she is daring enough to wear any color yet graceful and smart enough to rock tailored specific pieces.  She reportedly told USA today, that she is “mind boggled” at the way people admire her favorable fashion selections. For the Los Angeles premier of 12 Years A Slave she stunned onlookers in a playful light pink high-necked frock, with pleated detailing by Miu Miu.

Did you know Nyong’o is also a skilled short film director?

In 2009 she directed a documentary entitled, In My Genes about the treatment of Albino’s in Kenya which was shown at several film festivals. The highly sought after talent will also be staring opposite Liam Neesom and Julianne Moore in new movie, Non Stop an action thriller coming out later this month.

Shortlisted in Vogue for her style

With an Oscar nomination behind her, actors like Brad Pitt supporting her talents, and a Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2014 Campaign under her belt, she is poised to take on the acting world full speed ahead.

She’s humble, alluring, attractive and educated. As I like to say, sexy is as sexy does and Lupita Nyong’o is a shining example of the true essence and beauty of a black woman – THEE It Girl!!!
