Earlier today we saw that actress Lupita Nyong’o and musician Pharrell were both in attendance at the Academy Award Nominees Luncheon here in Hollywood and are both featured in the Oscar Class of 2014 photo. Right now we get to see a cute photo that Lupita snapped with Pharrell which was then shared on her official Instagram profile. As you can see, Lupita and Pharrell make the cutest BFF couple EVER (no shady biz, Pharrell is happily married) and it is my hope that this photo is only the first of MANY that we’ll get to see in the coming weeks of these new friends.

I think I’m becoming slightly obsessed with Lupita … I just love everything about her. It’s clear that she and Pharrell have a mutual respect for one another and it’s really great to see them hanging out together. I attended the Hollywood Reporter’s Nominees Night event in Beverly Hills last night and I got to briefly meet Lupita (it was a quick nice to meet you, nothing too substantial — more deets later) and she is just a delight in person. She is a music fan. She had the best time during the musical performances last night so I’m not at all surprised that she is a Pharrell fan. I suggest following Lupita on Instagram, that way you can get a daily dose of Ms. Nyong’o … which is the surest way to brighten up your day.
