Lupita Nyong'o Covers 'Vogue' For a 2nd Time!

Lupita Nyong'o Covers 'Vogue' For a 2nd Time!

Lupita Nyong’o looks as gorgeous as always on the cover of Vogue magazine’s October 2015 issue.

Here’s what the 32-year-old Oscar winner had to share with the mag:

On loving both America and Kenya: “I definitely feel there’s a lot of America in me,” she continues. “The idea that you can be self-made is very vibrant in America. You can do anything that you want to do. That spirit pushes you on. But it took me leaving Kenya to really appreciate the glory of the place. Ultimately, I will always be a child of Kenya.”

On drama vs. comedy: “I’m definitely attracted to more dramatic roles. I like playing characters that stretch me and that allow me to investigate humanity in a different way.”

J.J. Abrams, on Lupita in Star Wars: “We needed a powerful actress to play a powerful character. Lupita was someone I’d known a little and was enormously fond of. More important, her performance in 12 Years a Slave blew my mind, and I was vaguely desperate to work with her.”

This is Lupita‘s second Vogue cover — the first was just over a year ago!

    Just beautiful, so glad vogue has stopped putting the talentless and porn stars on their cover.

  • forrest gump

    so black is the new white.

  • KA


    A queen most deserving!

  • dalovelee

    she looks beautiful

  • jason

    if lupita was light skin she would be the biggest actress on the planet, she’s just too black to be accepted as a sex symbol by whites and blacks

  • devvv

    She’s turned down (at least) three movie roles and a chance to be on Broadway. Not everyone wants to make movies just for the sake of making movies and not everyone wants to be a sex symbol.

  • John

    Go Lupita!

  • FormerLamark

    Oh, she is very-very nice on this cover!
    And she is NOT too black to anything!!! This is the real, original black skin which means “black is beautiful”! It is not guilt if someone has a real nice black skin which the evolution created sooner than the white skin.

    The problem is that if someone starts to be ashamed and offended of origin, because then everyone will treat him/her accordingly.

  • plez

    Beautiful cover.

  • deusexmachina

    Gorgeous simply gorgeous. If Vogue is trying to redeem itself from going to the deep end with their Kimye Kraptasian mess cover choice then Lupita’s cover might had done that.

  • KA

    I happen to think she IS a sex symbol. She’s also a woman of substance.

  • Brooke

    FLAWLESS. She might be the most beautiful woman in Hollywood

  • Arx

    Two black women in a row???? Damn Anna Wintour must be getting some black dick!! U go gurl! lol

  • AK

    simply gorgeous .. she can do 10000 Vogues covers and i will never getting bored

  • mandyz

    All of her Vogue pictures from both issues are consistently captivating. I can’t wait to see her on the cover of the September issue one day, she deserves it.

  • KA

    She is, although the competition from Naomi Harris, Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks, Gabrielle Union, Beyonce, Janelle Monet, Jada Pinkett Smith, Yaya Dacosta, Sonequa Martin-Green, Kerry Washington, Viola Davis and Danai Gurira is most fierce.

    God bless all you gracious and gorgeous black women! FLAWLESS. AS. EVER.

  • dreamon1978

    She looks absolutely amazing! This is the most stunning spread I have seen in over a decade!

  • Lylian

    Love the cover shot and the photo of her in the blue dress. I love her in that blue dress – i get the 1920′s jazz girl vibe

  • photoshop

    If ugly Lupeta is beautiful why is she over photoshopped to look Ethiopian?Why are her fat legs and canckles removed?We saw her cry for 10 min in a movie.Can she act?Gabourey,Gabrielle,Taraji are the real actresses.Lupeta is pushed on us because of white guilt.There are beautiful and sexy black actresses.Her PR is currently pushing her for a film when she does not have the body for it.Many talented 20 year olds are auditioning for the role.

  • photoshop

    The most photoshopped cover

  • photoshop

    Hahahahahaha.Not true.Lupita is not attractive.We don’t even know if she can act.We will see when she is in more movies.

  • photoshop

    Not true.Lupita is an average actress that is why she is not getting offered many roles.She is ugly and not a sex symbol.It has nothing to do with skin.There are many beautiful dark skinned black women.Lupita is not one of them.

  • photoshop

    Roles to play a slave, a social worker, a maid.These are great roles.She is an average actress.It has nothing to do with her skin.

  • GoViola!

    Can we have a real talented WOC on Vogue next time.lupita can’t even do the American or British accents.How is she an actress.Viola.Viola for Vogue!
