The Reason Lupita Nyong'o Designed Her Own Prom Dress
Lupita Nyong'o, the Academy Award-winning actress of "12 Years a Slave," graces her first Vogue cover and opens up about fashion while growing up in Kenya.
There's no stopping Lupita Nyong'o.
"It was a velvet miniskirt with a matching little top and an iridescent silver translucent fabric that flowed to the ground," Lupita tells Vogue of the prom dress she designed herself "because it was cheaper than buying retail." "It was kind of ridiculous, but it was fabulous at the time," she adds.
