Lupita Nyong’o wearing a dress made of the tears of angels. Does she ever look anything less than absolutely *stunning*?
Randomly found my way to this video of her in grad school IN AUGUST 2012. I know I have food in my freezer that’s been there longer.
What a trajectory.
And not just in the acting/Academy-Award-(hopefully)-winning department — the thing that’s really amazing is how quickly her style and presence have come together. Whoever she’s got her in corner deserve awards of their own.
But mostly, this is just pure, unadulterated star power. Bow down.
