“May this statue remind me and every child that no matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid.” ~ Lupita Nyong’o
That inspiring speech Lupita made when she won the Best Supporting Actress during this year´s Oscars ceremony struck a cord in me. Lupita´s success resonated with me. Not that I too dreamed of winning an Oscar ;), but that my dreams guided me in building something for myself and my family entirely from nothing. I liked that she used her achievement to encourage young minds.
As they say, “when it rains, it pours”. Lupita Nyong’o was also chosen to be a poster girl for Miu Miu´s spring 2014 campaign. She´s seen wearing Miu Miu´s spring pieces at many events. The MIU MIU “Parrot dress” she wore at the 12 Years a Slave LA premiere has sold out everywhere. That sealed her the new title – trendsetter and style icon.
The Miu Miu Wool Coat
Lupita wore this sand and white wool coat to a fashion show in Paris. It boosts exaggerated proportions with its giant buttons, oversized flap pockets, and a stunning retro feel. You can keep things tonal by wearing it over a white shirt and a sand skirt. Add color to the look with your shoes or bag.
The Miu Miu Wool Dress
The Parrot dress is sold out but you can go for this Glass-fringed dress instead. It has a chic style and a charming color. The best feature of this frock is its delicate glass fringing at the neckline and waist. Although the sugared-pink color is by itself a statement, you can still top it with bright accessories such as a red bag and a yellow shoe.
The Miu Miu Embellished Crepe Jacket
This is the cropped jacket that Lupita wore to a Paris fashion show which made headlines. It has a detachable crystal-embellished neckline so there´s no need of necklaces and other blings. It also has a straight-fitted silhouette which makes it perfect to partner a fitted skirt.
The Miu Miu Pencil Skirt
You can channel some Lupita style at formal events too. Try dressing up a light blue pencil skirt with an embellished crepe top layered with a luxurious yet young-looking pink sweater. Keep the look ultra-polished and chic with an animal print bag and an easy-to-pair nude pump.
Now over to you girls, what do you think of Lupita Nyong’o style? Which Miu Miu pieces are you coveting for spring?
