Ever since Lupita Nyong’o was introduced to us as the stellar actress in 12 Years A Slave last year, we knew that she’d be Hollywood’s next “It” girl. She went on to win an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress and became a cover star on pretty much every magazine you can think of, from Vogue to W Magazine.
