As the “United Colors of Lupita” graphic proves, every color in the rainbow looks good on Lupita Nyong’o. Her hue-tiful looks have won fans the world over, but they’re especially thrilling for black women like me.
I love seeing her pose at red carpets across the globe using the same trick our mothers did: playing up her dark skin with vibrant bright colors. From resplendent canary yellow to soft #Nairobiblue, Lupita choose colors that complement her skin so well the world can’t take their eyes off her.
Take a cue from Lupita, and incorporate these colors into your wardrobe for Spring:
