When I see Lupita, two words come to mind — style and grace. Of course, there are many others I can think of (like beautiful, super-talented), but then I’d be going on for days. She seems so grounded and poised and I couldn’t be happier to see a young woman living her dream.
Let’s talk about her fashion choices. Whether it’s clothes, hair or makeup she always gets it right. Last month she shared her beauty secrets with Racked:
“I use a lot of natural oils—like avocado oil and Hawaiian kukui oil—and try to drink lots of water. I think your skin really needs to be nourished from the inside rather than outside, so eating right and drinking water really goes a long way. I’m very low-maintenance.”
By the way, wasn’t Lupita’s Oscar acceptance speech just perfect? And if you missed the one she delivered at the Essence Black Women in Hollywood luncheon, here’s a short excerpt.
“…And my mother again would say to me, “You can’t eat beauty. It doesn’t feed you.” And these words plagued and bothered me; I didn’t really understand them until finally I realized that beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume, it was something that I just had to be.”
I just love her…
Huge congrats to Lupita on her Oscar win! So well deserved. Xx…
