Lupita Nyong’o In Jonathan Cohen – Jimmy Kimmel Live

Lupita Nyong’o made a guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel last night (January 14) where she talked about going from being a student at Yale, to starring in ’12 Years A Slave’, to meeting people she’s starstruck over like Leonardo DiCaprio at The Golden Globes on Sunday.

With her fashion-icon status all but sealed, every item she wears will come under closer scrutiny, but she appears to be taking it all in her stride. Even Jimmy commented on her dress during this interview.

The actress wore a sporty Jonathan Cohen Spring 2014 frock featuring a surfer print in a cool-blue hue, with matching pumps and a bright-red lip rounding out her look.

Her short ‘do was again side parted, this time in two places, as she continued to pay homage to the formidable Grace Jones.

    I thought she was Mexican born?

    Lovely dress, Kimmel had the most cringe-worthy questions ever tho. smh
    I really admire her for putting up with these kind of interviews with a straight face lol

    Sorry FC, but she was born in Mexico but raised in Kenya. Lovely as usual.

  9. Alina January 15, 2014 at 21:16 #

    Lovely look! I admire her for wearing bold prints and colours over and over again.

    She is so cute. Love this look!

    Wow. I didn’t really understand her appeal beautywise from pictures- but she looks absolutely stunning in the interview. Pictures does not do her justice

      Do not*

        She’s really perfection in motion. She just makes me smile.

  12. Badaboum January 15, 2014 at 23:26 #

    Flawless as usual… Any idea who her stylist is? Or if she has one at all?

    • nokia January 16, 2014 at 09:40 #

      Was going to ask the same question to FC

  13. Archana January 15, 2014 at 23:46 #

    Love her sense of fashion and style and it doesn’t hurt that she is utterly adorable! Doesn’t hurt at all :)

  14. Myrtle January 16, 2014 at 00:45 #

    She is so beautiful and absolutely lovely! I love her laugh, oh my god she’s like an angel haha!
    The dress was very cute and event appropriate
    Some of the questions in the interview made me cringe a bit. It’s clear Jimmy thinks that in Kenya they just have mud huts and barely speak English, it was a bit annoying seeing him be surprised that Kenyan people watch TV or have senators.
    Anyway! Lupita was very graceful and elegant with it all, I like her and can’t wait to see more of her not just on the red carpet but in movies too.

  15. Serenity January 16, 2014 at 02:01 #

    I mean really, how can you not love her??

  16. michboa January 16, 2014 at 02:33 #

    Her skin is glorious. I don’t think she is trying to pay homage to Grace Jones.Loads of women wear a fade and not necessarily because of Grace Jones.
