I was checking my news feed today and I saw the picture of Lupita Nyong’o in her colourful dress and all I could think of was the Ndebele women from South Africa and the Masai women from Kenya! I couldn’t shake it off my head! Lol! The babe redefined the look of the Masai and Ndebele women in her Chanel dress (but the colors and neck details of her dress is more Ndebele inspired). I wonder if that was the inspiration behind the dress!
Lupita Nyong’o attended the 2014 MTV Movie Awards at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles in a Chanel dress from the Fall 2014 collection and paired it with Casadei ‘Blade’ pumps. Her makeup, in its simplicity and class, was done by Nick Barose. I love how he’s always on point with her makeup especially on her beautiful brown skin.
I think she stood out in that dress! Looks like she can’t go wrong in any dress, even if she wore a sack! See below one of the most colorful and beautiful culture- The Ndebele Tribe of South Africa.
