Lupita Nyong’o takes the cover of Vogue for the first time in a vibrant shoot, shot on location in Marrakech. Photographer Mikael Jansson catches Lupita embracing the Moroccan culture in a series of compelling photos. Dancing in the halls of the exclusive Ksar Char-Bagh resort in an exquisite Vera Wang maxi dress, socializing with local spice venders in the spice stalls at the medina in Porenza Schouler, and facing off with a King Cobra over a cup of traditional tea wearing Alexander Wang, it really doesn’t get much more exotic than this.
This look is all about rich earthy tones, bold prints and rustic statement jewelry. Incorporating natural materials like bronze cuffs, straw bags, earthy leather sandals, fabulous headscarves and bright colorful beads are a great way to recreate these ‘African’ inspired looks.

There is nothing worse than realizing mid-way through the day that your make up is half way down your face! If you are somewhere hot, you need to use the correct make up. Opt for a cream based blush or shadow to give you a dewy glow rather than a powder that will cake in the baking sun.
