It's been one heck of a year for Lupita Nyong'o,
and aside from her swift ascent to Hollywood A-list status for her
award-winning performance in "12 Years a Slave," she's been
wholeheartedly embraced by the fashion world.

She (and her
stylist, Micaela Erlanger) ruled the red carpet during awards season,
wowing critics and fans alike with her elegant choices by Prada, Ralph
Lauren, Calvin Klein and more. Nyong'o has already earned herself many a
"best dressed" title, a Miu Miu campaign and a Lancôme contract, and now she's landed her very first Vogue cover.

the July 2014 issue of the glossy, the 31-year-old actress was shot
by Mikael Jansson in Marrakech, wearing pieces by Vera Wang, Rodarte,
Proenza Schouler and Givenchy. She opens up to Hamish Bowles about her
upbringing, her whirlwind year in Hollywood and, of course, her approach
to fashion.

According to Erlanger, the actress showed up to
their first meeting armed with a Pinterest board full of inspiration,
and, though fittings were daunting, Nyong'o had fun with the
process. "Especially for the bigger awards, the dress let me know it was
going to be worn," Nyong'o says. "It’s quite scary when you fall in
love with a dress, because it’s nothing to do with your brain. It’s like
a gut reaction.”
