Lupita Nyong’o is not here for your nonsense

In  a world where cornrows are considered “ghetto” until Kim Kardashian wears them, when they become high fashion, Lupito Nyong’o is not here for your whitewashing bull shit.  The amazing Nyong’o sported this dramatic hairstyle at this year’s Met Gala-lupita1-020f6ed7-d3cd-4e1f-8721-96dcb9398aeeDespite the actress telling Vogue that the inspiration for the style was “sculptural hairdos from all around the continent,” i.e. Africa, the magazine compared it to a style once worn by Audrey Hepburn.
