Style Spotlight: Break out style star and Oscar winning actress Lupita N'yongo

She may have taken home the coveted golden statue for her role as Patsy in 12 Years a Slave, but Lupita N'yongo had already won the hearts of the fashion set for her style both on and off the red carpet. I mean when Vogue names you as one of their "Rising Style Stars" you've got our stamp of approval. Always on point, the Kenyan beauty stays true to her style aesthetic of bold prints and punchy brights in household names such as Prada, Lanvin and Mary Katrantzou. So how has the new face of Miu Miu maintained this style streak you ask? I introduce to you celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger. With Lupita's undeniable beauty and Micaela's great eye for style, the two are definitely leaving their mark in Tinseltown. Here is a look back at some of Nyongo's most memorable fashion moments.
