For the past few months, I’ve been pretty much obsessing over Academy Award-nominated actress Lupita Nyong’o and her complete and utter flawlessness in all things. Today, I have a new thing to obsess over … her beautiful mother! Lupita has been bringing her mother to a few Oscar-related events in the past week or so, giving us our first look at the hallowed woman who brought this stunning actress into the world. In news that should come as absolutely no surprise to anyone, Lupita‘s mother is just as flawless as her daughter is. Have a look below at mother and daughter celebrating Lupita‘s success here in Hollywood together.
Introducing my Mummy to Major Women of Influence: #EmmaThompson @Oprah #AngelinaJolie #EEBAFTAs / So sweet. @lupitanyongo and her mom. Mom is so proud! Said she first saw lupita’s gift when she was just 3 yrs old. Awwww. @lovegoldlive #oscars2014
The first photo was shared by Lupita on her official Instagram profile and features Nyong’o, her mother and a couple of other kinda familiar-looking ladies at the BAFTA Awards last week. The second photo was shared by E! News‘s Marc Malkin on his official Instagram profile, that features mother and daughter at an Oscar event last night. I am not surprised in the slightest that Lupita inherited her mother’s style, grace and beauty. I basically love everything about Lupita Nyong’o … and now I love her mom, too. I hope that we get to see Luptia‘s mother over Oscar weekend because these two ladies make a stunning pair :)
