MY MOTHER AND AUNT INSPIRE MY STYLE-LUPITA NYONG’O
Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong’o told Vanity Fair in her cover story that her sense of style is mostly inspired by her mother Dorothy Nyong’o and her aunty Amondi, “The gesture of my style is definitely my mom. I always thought she was very elegant, and she was always present with the way she put herself together without being precious,” says Lupita.
She also looks up to her Aunt Amondi, her mother’s sister, whose style is the opposite of her mom’s, black leather jackets, a mohawk and even a motorcycle to complete the look. “I kind of oscillated between the two. I find I love the elegant, the classic, the simple, but I also like the outrageous and the quirky and the almost accidental,” she adds.
Though Lupita has been rumoured to be dating her cast mate Michael B. Jordan, actor Jared Leto and recently singer Janelle Monáe, she told the magazine the reason why she keeps her life, “I feel like there’s parts of myself that I care to share and then there are parts that I don’t,” she said.
