Lupita Nyong’o, photographed for the cover of Variety, on location in a beautiful loft conversion in New York City.  The relaxed shoot rounded off a day of several press interviews beforehand. 

“Alexei, the photographer, wanted to emphasise Lupita’s youthful and dewy skin.  I styled her hair to complement this, with asymmetric sides and an overall finish which showcases a very natural state.  It’s a true reflection of Lupita’s natural texture, but pushed up a notch, which went down really well and looks absolutely beautiful.” – Vernon François.
