Move away Kendall Jenner, Lupita Nyong’o is the girl of the moment now. The Oscar-winning Kenyan actress stars on Vogue’s October 2016 issue. Nyong’o revealed the news with a heartwarming Instagram video on Thursday. To celebrate her new movie “Queen of Katwe,” a story from Uganda, Nyong’o took Vogue — including Mario Testino, Tonne Goodman and her hairstylist Vernon François — to her family’s village in Kenya. Her cover line touts her quote, “I want to create opportunities for people of color,” which she touches on in a corresponding interview on Vogue.com.
