She's Your Queen to Be: Lupita N'yongo takes the Cannes



Lupita N'yongo is at it again. From the absolutely stunning grasshopper-green Gucci gown to her flawless plum lippie and amazing afro bun, the Kenyan beauty left us floored. Celebrity hairstylist Vernon François created a regal donut bun inspired by the women of Uganda . Of his inspirations, he shared with Refinery29:

"I am passionate about demonstrating what is possible to create with natural, Afro-textured hair," he told us. "It isn’t about ’new' trends; I want to showcase to women of color all over the world how versatile their hair is by exposing them to hairstyles from different cultures. Traditional looks can and should be just as show-stopping on the high street as they are on the red carpet."

What an absolute beauty, Lupita!
