Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, and Marilyn Monroe.These women are some of the greatest fashion icons of the last century. With their contributions to film, music, and fashion they will always be remembered for their presence in pop culture. However, the greatest part of the story is that their legacy lies not only with their choices in fashion and beauty but also in their humanitarian contributions to society.

Today there are smart, gorgeous, and kind women in the public eye who we can look up to the way we did with these classic beauties. We want to recognize the stunning Lupita Nyong’o and her blossoming place among these great icons!

This newcomer to Hollywood has wowed everyone not only with her acting chops, but her fashion presence as well. We love that she can dress trendy and feminine without masking her natural beauty. Even beyond fashion and fame, she is beautiful inside and out!

From her inspiring Academy Award acceptance speech to her speech centered around beauty at the Black Women in Hollywood luncheon, she has inspired women of all colors to accept and love themselves.

“I hope that my presence on your screen and my face in magazines may lead you, young girls, on a beautiful journey. That you will feel the validation of your external beauty, but also get to the deeper business of being beautiful inside.” (Nyong’o BWH)

It’s no wonder that Hollywood, and the rest of the world, has fallen in love with Nyong’o! It’s so rare that we have influential people in the spotlight represent something genuinely good and inspiring. In a culture of fashion models and the “ideal” body shape, girls of all ages need a woman to look up to who can inspire them to seek their own sense of self worth.

From stunning clothes and makeup to a stunning presence of self confidence and love, Lupita Nyong’o is our fashion icon this week! Women can learn from her style as well as her spirit. It’s no surprise that women all over the world are grateful for the already iconic Kenyan.

Tell us what you think of Lupita! Who is your fashion icon present or past?
