Behold! It’s Lupita Nyong’o‘s first ever cover of InStyle!
While we’re not exactly sure what took so long, the Eclipsed starlet looks beyond beautiful for the April issue!
Dressed in a teal fishnet Proenza Schouler dress, Jennifer Fisher earrings, and Louis Vuitton rings, the glossy’s cover star exudes an air of cool sophistication.

The envy is clearly very real, but inside the mag, Lupita describes not being sure of taking one of her bigger risks: her gorge shortened ‘do!
The 33-year-old confessed:

“I wasn’t sure if I could pull off [the bald look]. Because hair is the frame of the face, right? And we spend so much time on it, trying to get it perfect. It often defines one’s beauty and feminine value. Almost on a whim, I was like, ├óΓé¼╦£What if I didn’t have it?’ And so I shaved it all off ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ I was a complete baldy! It was shocking at first, especially for my mom. But I learned to embrace my features. And I like myself a lot more now that I’m not constantly fussing over my hair.”

She wears it well!
Miz Nyong’o also discussed diversity in the upcoming issue, adding even more to her statements about the Oscars controversy:

“It’s a disappointment that the nominations this year have not reflected some of the work of people of color, and I hope this moment helps fuel that conversation. There is a real imbalance, from the very creation of the stories and who’s telling them, how, and why. Change has to happen with the writers, the studio, the marketers, the directors. That’s got to be diversified because there is a hunger for the expansion of the role of people of color in the center of narratives.”

We love that she’s continued to talk about the issue!
Can’t wait to see what else the starlet has in store with the glossy!!
