Proof that Lupita Nyong’o can actually wear any hairstyle: her latest photo shoot. The Oscar-winning actress, 32, has already sported a close crop, a faux-hawk, long braids, and short curls since she stepped on the scene after her 12 Years a Slave debut in 2013. But now, Nyong’o’s tresses take the shape of a voluminous blunt bob.
Parted in the middle, the Star Wars: The Force Awakens starlet’s locks were coifed into a cheekbone-length mod style for a photo shoot and interview with United Airlines’ December edition of Rhapsody.
Nyong’o posed in a series of pictures that showed off the architectural cut in various expressions and moods, and we definitely have a beauty crush on the fresh look.
It’s clear that the Lancome ambassador likes to switch up her hair, and doesn’t feel constrained by styles she’s worn in the past. Her recent voice acting roles are an extension of that feeling, she told Rhapsody. “Playing a character who wasn’t restricted by my physical circumstances was definitely on my bucket list,” she said.
