Lupita Nyong’o is not only one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, but also a style icon around the world.

The actress, who starred in the record-breaking ‘Black Panther’, can literally rock any look as bold colours look more radiant against her melanin sufficient skin.

Her style is the best of both worlds as it is dynamic, elegant and all-encompassing.

Nyong’o has the ability to bring a fresh perspective to an outfit as simple as a t-shirt and a pair of jeans and as complex as a Met gala gown.

The 35-year-old actress of Kenyan heritage does not shy away from representing her African culture with eye-catching African prints and daring designs.

The ‘Queen of Katwe’ actress who hated her natural hair as a child has grown to embrace who she is and is becoming a role model for younger generations.

Here are our favourite looks from her Afrocentric style.
