In this issue, she talks about her 4 upcoming film projects, including her role in popular Star Wars movie: The Force Awakens movie and The Jungle Book, family, high fashion and more.
In the interview with Vogue, Lupita dished on her first encounter with fashion at the age of 5. She said – “Presentation is extremely important in Kenya. You dress formally. You can’t just wear flip-flops. My mother always had her own style. She wore A-line, tea-length flowery dresses, very well fitting. Her nails were always perfectly done.“
“Salons were a big feature in my life. We would go every two weeks to get our hair braided, washed, or treated. That’s where I read American, British, and a few African magazines. Then I would design my own clothes. In Kenya it’s much cheaper to get clothes made than to buy them. We would have everything run up by a tailor, or my aunt Kitty, who is very creative, would sew things for me.”
She also talked about acting in Kenya, what intrigues her about fashion and much more.
