First it was the First Lady of the United States of America, Michelle Obama, then Solange Knowles and now it’s the super star Lupita!
Leading fashion label, Maki Oh continues to prove a hit amongst Hollywood’s fashion elite as Lupita Nyong’o has joined the league of stars spotted in the brand’s design.
The Kenyan beauty was spotted wearing two classic hand-painted and hand-dyed pieces by the designer and champion of Adire.
The Oscar-award winning actress is currently on a ‘Homecoming Tour’ in Kenya, her first visit since winning the movie industry’s top award for her breakout role in 12 Years A Slave.
And at two of her public outings, the actress made fashion forward choices including a silk scarf blouse and silk cotton skirt ensemble to a mentor-ship talk. Later at a press conference, she wore a silk satin and velvet vest teamed with silk cotton wide leg pants.
Maki Oh is the first African designer Lupita has worn at an event. And we are not surprised as Maki Oh’s increasing creative success continues to earn the brand a star-studded cast of fans and startling reviews both in Nigeria and on the international fashion scene.
