Lupita Nyong'o Returns to the Red Carpet for First Time in Over a Year!

Lupita Nyong’o is back on the red carpet after being away for the past year during the pandemic.

The Oscar-winning actress stepped out to attend the premiere of the movie Queen of Glory during the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival on Tuesday (June 15) at Pier 76 in New York City.

Queen of Glory is the feature-film directorial debut of Nana Mensah, who also wrote and stars in the movie.

Here is the synopsis: “Brainy scientist Sarah, a doctoral student at Columbia University, is weeks away from following her very married boyfriend to Ohio when her mother dies suddenly, leaving Sarah the owner of a small but beloved Christian bookstore in the Bronx. Tasked with planning a culturally respectful funeral befitting the family matriarch, Sarah must juggle the expectations of her loving yet demanding family while navigating the reappearance of her estranged father all while grappling with what to do with the bookstore. Aided by an only-in-New York ensemble of Eastern European neighbors, feisty African aunties and a no-nonsense ex-con co-worker, Sarah faces her new responsibilities while figuring out how to remain true to herself.”

A new project for Lupita was announced a few months ago!

FYI: Lupita is wearing a Studio dress and the Alexander McQueen “The Story” bag.
