'12 Years A Slave' Oscar nominee Lupita Nyong'o has become a style favorite over the awards season and has quickly garnered attention for her always elegant and modern take on red carpet dressing. The actress has spoken on her thoughts regarding the fashion industry, admitting that before the film's success she didn't know much about fashion at all but was often influenced by her surroundings: “Until all this, I hadn’t been a student of the fashion industry as a formal industry, I wasn’t the girl who bought the fashion magazines, I’d always just worn what appeals to me. I know that even if I don’t buy the magazines and stuff, with fashion and style, you pick up influences all the time—if your eyes are open, you’re being influenced by fashion and style, whether you like it or not.”

On her personal style icons, Lupita points out that she admires a few other stars for their own refined sense of style and she began to research fashion properly after the film because she knew she would be making red carpet appearances and wanted to find her own sense of style: “I’ve admired from afar people like Elizabeth Taylor, Iman, and Cate Blanchett. When I knew I was going to be doing the press tour for 12 Years A Slave, I got to work and started researching what was happening in the formal world of fashion to try and articulate to myself what my style would be in it all. It’s been a great education—a great discovery—to find clothing artists who are doing things that I feel express something about myself. And there are so many.”

Lupita is known for opting for bold colours on the red carpet and she explained her choices: “I love color and gravitate towards solid block colors, I like clean lines and a classic look, but I also like to have a sense of humor and wear things that put a smile on my face. I like to wear things, I don’t like things to wear me. I don’t like fuss!”
