Lupita Nyong’o is an Oscar winning actress who has appeared in films such as 12 Years a Slave, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Jungle Book. She is also an advocate for the international conservation charity WildAid and the Ugandan organisation Mother Health International.
In addition to her impressive professional roster and charitable work, Nyong’o has also been noticed for her impeccable style. She has appeared on the covers of Vogue (and was only the second African woman to do so) Elle and Vanity Fair, and has been awarded various style and beauty accolades from publications around the globe.
Nyong’o is best known for her stand out red carpet style. Somehow she manages to consistently choose outfits that are classic and simple, yet unexpected and individual. One of the key ways that she does this is by pairing clean tailored lines with fantastically bold colours.
We’re pleased to point out that jewellery is also a key part of the successful Nyong’o style formula! Lupita Wyong’o tends to favour sleek silver toned jewellery. She is often seen wearing eye-catching dangly earrings alongside couture gowns. Her love of colour is also reflected in the jewellery she chooses, with bright statement gemstone regularly making an appearance.
If Nyong’o were to pop into our contemporary jewellery shop in York, we think she’d love our collection of Cornerstone Creation cocktail rings thanks to their bold, beautiful colours.
