We’re green with envy over Lupita Nyong’o’s fabness. But in a good way. Get into her teal green perfection for the cover of InStyle magazine inside….
Draped in the perfectly sexy mesh Proenza Schouler dress to usher in spring 2016, Lupita Nyong’o is InStyle mag’s April cover girl. And she looks absolutely stunning.
The Eclipsed star is currently conquering Broadway as she awaits her big Disney pictures — Queen of Katwe and The Jungle Book — to make their debuts.
The Kenyan beauty also booked the upcoming film Intelligent Life, which will be directed by YBF Chick Ava Duvernay and is due out in 2017.
Lupita is fabulously BOOKED.
Here’s another story we can’t wait to get our eyes on:
The super fab (and preggers) InStyle Editor Kahlana Barfield, put her stamp on the April issue in a personal way. She wrote her story about “being pretty for a dark skin girl.”
She posted the pic above on Instagram revealing:
I’ve been called “pretty for a dark-skinned girl” more times than I can count. This backhanded compliment implies that dark-skinned black girls aren’t pretty, and that I’m an exception. COLORISM. When it comes to this topic, everyone has their own story. I’m telling mine in the new April issue of @instylemagazine. So many young girls struggle with their identity, and we have a collective responsibility to teach our children that beauty goes beyond skin shade. Writing this essay was especially meaningful for me, as I am pregnant with a baby girl. If there’s one thing my husband and I will teach her, it is self-love. Use your platform to enlighten and make a difference. Thank you @arielfoxman and @amysynnott for your support with this story and for having the courage to let me tell it in InStyle. || Issue on newsstands March 18th #MyBlackIsBeautiful #LoveTheSkinYoureIn #StayWoke #DarkSkinIsPretty
