Though genetics might take the credit for Lupita Nyong’o’s flawless brown skin, big beautiful smile, and muscular frame, there is one woman to whom attention must be made when it comes to the 12 Years a Slave actress’s style: Micaela Erlanger. Luckily, the Hollywood Reporter is doing just that by featuring Lupita and her stylist on the cover of their next issue alongside fellow actress Michelle Dockery.
In this issue, THR highlights the 25 most powerful stylists and their thoughts on their subject’s greatest fashion moments. Micaela spoke on the red Ralph Lauren cape gown Lupita wore at the Golden Globes, calling it “the perfect dress, on the perfect girl, for the perfect moment.” Michelle is actually the reason Lupita and Micaela crossed paths to begin with. After the Downton Abby star befriended Lupita, she told her “When you’re ready, I have the perfect stylist for you.”
That proved to be more than true and the ladies’ spread in THR shows just why Micaela, Lupita, and Michelle are such beasts in the fashion game. Check out the photos from their spread on the next few pages. What do you think?
