Inches 2 Style

A blog on fashion, motherhood and personal development.


Hi all!!
For the last month or so social media has been filled with photos and news on Lupita Nyong'o, Kenya's new Hollywood star. Like everyone else not only am I intrigued by her success but her fashion choices have put her in one of my favorite stylish celebrities lists.
Ms. Nyong'o has proved, to me at least, that with the right clothes and accessories, a simple girl can turn heads and become one of the best dressed celebrities on different lists around the globe. I'm not making this up. I have seen her featured in "my favorite celebrities this week" lists for some on some of the fashion websites I follow.
Her style choices should serve as a reminder to us Africans, you know with our dark skin and kinky hair, that we can look fabulous, by just wearing the right clothes and colors. I love that she wears her hair short. This is one daring lady. I know many people prefer weaves to having natural let alone short hair. But not Lupita. She has managed to make extra short hair chic!
As for her choice of outfits, I love the simplicity. As is most typical for the red carpet, Lupita chose dresses which in my books are simple but have some special details, with one exception of course. She wore shorts once and I just fell in love with the outfit. It was a simple mix and match, worn with very little make-up, a  gorgeous smile and confidence. 
All in all, Ms. Nyong'o has proved to me that having dark skin is a great advantage. Her choice of colors for her dresses really compliments her skin tone and makes her look even more beautiful. Now if only she could share her skin regimen because her face is flawless!!!
What do you think of Lupita Nyong'o's style? Would you emulate it? Let me know in the comments below.

I hope you had a great weekend. Happy Monday!!
