This year has been quite the year for Lupita Nyong’o. Aside from her swift ascent to Hollywood A-list status for her Oscar award-winning performance in 12 Years a Slave, she’s been wholeheartedly embraced by the fashion world.

With the help from her stylist Michaela Erlanger, Nyong’o ruled the red carpet during the awards season, wowing critics and fans alike with her elegant choices by Prada, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and more. She’s earned herself the “best dressed” title on several different occasions, a Miu Miu campaign and a Lancôme contract; so this Vogue cover is just the cherry on top to her long list of accomplishments, and I’m certain there will be plenty more to come.
