Last week, Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong'o shook the fashion world with the announcement of her Vogue cover for the magazine's July Issue. It's been a great year for the emerging star who mentioned that "It just feels like the entertainment industry exploded into my life. People who seemed so distant all of a sudden were right in front of me and recognizing me — before I recognized them!" Well, since her terrific performance in 12 Years A Slave and her nomination for People magazine's 'Most Beautiful Woman in the World', her name's been on everyone's lips. Nyong'o also recently confirmed that she'll be appearing in Star Wars: Episode VII , the live action version of The Jungle Book and team up with Brad Pitt's Plan B Productions to produce and star in the film adaptation Chimamanda Adichie's novel Americanah.
