Lupita Nyong'o was sighted in Cannes today outside the Hotel Martinez. Now I'm even more excited. You saw what Lupita delivered at the MET Gala. It was polarising but it gave us something to talk about. And she played. She came to play.
So Lupita at the Palais? On the red steps? Please I want to see.
Lupita is there, officially, because she'll be honoured alongside Naomi Watts, Julianne Moore, and Rooney Mara by the Independent Filmmaker Project in collaboration with Calvin Klein. They throw a party there every year. It's happening tonight.
But also, since Lupita is the face of Lancome, which is owned by L'Oreal, sponsor of the festival, it's very possible she'll be invited to walk the carpet. Tomorrow, maybe?
