Lupita Nyong’o is keeping us busy. We began the day swooning over her bronze lamé Lanvin look from the Non-Stop premiere, and now we’re ending it by going into raptures over her new harlequin beauty spread for ESSENCE.
In the portraits, shot by Philippe Salomon, Nyong’o shows off icy blue cat eyes, bedazzled statement nails, and coral lips. Stylist Nick Nelson complemented the high-octane macquillage with ready-to-wear pieces by Vera Wang and Katrin Schnabl, as well as statement jewelry designs by Alexandra Mor.
