PicFrame(9)

Yassssssssssss! I can’t get enough of Lupita Nyong’o! This girl’s story touches me, cos it reinforces the fact that God still works wonders! Just last year this girl only had MTV Shuga to her credit, and now with her first movie, just out of drama school she wins an Oscar! Something her peers strive for with most never getting nominated in their lifetime.

For the Vanity Fair post Oscar bash Miss Nyong’o rocked a lime green embellished gown by Miu Miu, which she paired with Prada peep-toe sandals, with her gold statuette as her date for the night!

The event was hosted by Vanity Fair Editor In Chief Graydon Carter in West Hollywood.

Lupita Nyongo’o Just Won The Award For Best Supporting Actress At The 2014 Oscars…Becomes Second African To Ever Win, Watch Her Acceptance Speech

4666ec1ca28611e3aa0712a4347862c2_8

OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG! She won! Africa’s princess Lupita Nyongo’o just beat Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts, to take home the award for the Best Supporting Actress! This makes her the first second African woman to win an Oscar ever (after Charlize Theron from South Africa). Lupita is however the first ever black African & the 7th black woman to ever win!

Stunned beyond words when her name was called Lupita hugged her brother who was her date to the Oscars, Steve McQueen who directed her in 12 Years A Slave, Brad Pitt & Chiwetel Ejiofor, before going on stage to accept her award and give a profound, emotional speech

I cried when she gave her speech, I cannot believe this girl from Africa is now an Oscar Award winner! I pray she soars from here on & this is not the peak of her career!
