The beautiful Kenyan fashionista may be new to the international fashion scene, but she is giving red carpet staple a run for their money. Her growing red carpet appeal caught the attention of Vogue Magazine, which included the talented actress among those chosen for the magazine’s “The Ten Rising Style Stars of 2014.”

“She stole every red-carpet heart this fall with her clean silhouettes, close-cropped coif and ear-to-ear smile,” Vogue writes, adding, “The 12 Years a Slave star brought the same radiance and poise to her wardrobe as her Golden Globe–nominated performance.

In a recent interview with Arise 360 Magazine, the star dished on all the red carpet acclaim she has been receiving, noting her enjoyment. “It's thrilling. This is an area that I didn't plan for and that I'm enjoying. It's something new that I'm learning,” The “12 Years A Slave” golden globe nominee said. “What's becoming very obvious to me is that fashion is art. And it's so great to be introduced to designers who are doing things that express something about me. I'm loving finding myself in clothing.”

The fashionistas will be watching Lupita Nyong’o as she takes the 2014 red carpet by storm. The red carpet, including the Golden Globes, SAG Awards, and predicatably the Academy Awards, will be aglow with this rising fashion star’s designer threads. Expect nothing short of the best dressed list.
