Lupita Nyong’o is like the Oprah effect for clothes — everything she wears turns to gold. The latest beneficiary of her red carpet magic is Cameroonian designer Kibonen Nfi.
The Oscar winner and three-time Vogue cover girl wore a beautiful blue dress by the West African designer for an appearance on Good Morning America on Monday to promote her new film, Queen of Katwe, pairing the look with another gorgeous head wrap.
There isn't an inch of this entire look that isn't flawless:
