Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o rocks this crocheted green number from Proenza Schouler on the April 2016 cover of InStyle magazine!
Check out what the 33-year-old mega star shared with the mag below:
On the possibility of a career dive after all of her success: “Right after the Oscars, I had no idea what I was going to do next. Zero clue. There’s a part of me that thought my life would go back to normal. Like at school. But it didn’t. I did not get out of that unscathed, you know?”
On the #OscarsSoWhite controversy: “It’s a disappointment that the nominations this year have not reflected some of the work of people of color, and I hope this moment helps fuel that conversation. There is a real imbalance, from the very creation of the stories and who’s telling them, how, and why. Change has to happen with the writers, the studio, the marketers, the directors. That’s got to be diversified because there is a hunger for the expansion of the role of people of color in the center of narratives.”
On her upbringing: “Both my parents raised me to pursue the things that make me feel most alive—what you feel called to do—because that’s how you can have the most effect. That allowed me to get passionate about something that can sometimes seem as inconsequential as acting and then find important things to do with it.”
