Where now, Lupita?
The Oscars are over. Time to get the f-ck out of LA. Just hours after the parties, Lupita Nyong’o arrived at LAX yesterday, destination unknown. Where now, Lupita? She doesn’t have her next project lined up…yet.
I hope and I want to believe that that’s only because she’s taking her time to make her next move. Which is smart. I also hope and want to believe that given her overwhelming popularity during this award season, she’s now being considered for a wider range of possibilities.
Hey casting directors, were you considering Scarlett Johansson for that part? Because Lupita could play it too. Let her be on the same list as the Scarjos and the Keiras and the Careys and the Annies and the Jennifer Lawrences. At the moment, no one is more beloved.
You know where I think she might be heading though?
The Miu Miu show is tomorrow. And she’s the face of the current campaign. Which, of course, is why she wore Prada on Sunday to win her Oscar.
We’ve seen Lupita in a lot of cocktail and gowns the last few months. But we don’t often see Lupita’s casual steeze because until now, really, she hasn’t been a pap target. If her casual steeze is anything like this airport outfit, please, please we need more.
