Lupita Nyong’o Turns Head Wraps Into Fashion Gold

The Oscar winner and three-time Vogue cover girl has no doubt been red carpet royalty. But it’s her latest obsession with head wraps that has made an impact on the fashion scene. While some call them head wraps, others refer to them as turbans or hijabis but regardless of the name, when paired with the right attire and being rocked by the right beauties they are a tremendous fashion banger. Lupita has made head wraps the most trendy and necessary accessory for the fashionistas as she uses her heritage to inspire and blend her fashion sense.

In her third cover for Vogue October 2016 she stuns on the cover in a celebration of Afro-centricity, rocking an embroidered and printed floral cap sleeved gown and head wrap. She attended the US open in late August rocking a crop top and a matching headwrap and we can all tell the headpieces are Lupita’s latest fashion ‘thing’. Today, head wraps, turbans and hijabis are a revolving trend that maintains relevance in fashion.
