35-year-old actress, Lupita Nyong’o graces the cover of Porter Magazine’s latest issue tagged Desire Issue in a beautiful red Gucci dress.

She reflects on driving change in Hollywood and redressing beauty standards for people of color, as she models the bold silhouettes of the forthcoming FW18 collections.

She talks about empowering women, and how important her natural African hair is to her.

“My hair is something that, historically, has been shunned. I mean, how often do you hear ‘You can’t get a job with hair like that’?”

“Natural, African, kinky hair — it’s often been painted as uncivilized or wild,” “Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are.”

Check out photos of her captured by Mario Sorrenti below;
