Lupita Nyong'o is not only getting an Oscar Buzz thanks to her sterling performance as a slave named Patsey in 12 Years a Slave but her red carpet appearances have landed her on Hollywood’s 'It' List. From rocking Miu Miu to Prada this lass never fails to impress, it is no wonder designers are falling over each other to dress her.

So how is Miss Nyong’o dealing with her style icon status? Did she plan it all or was it  all by chance? Interviewed by Vulture magazine the damsel had this to say
"You have to wear something to these events, so I wore things, and people took to them. It was not my agenda at all! But it's fun, and I'm flattered that everyone is digging my style."

Nyong'o continues, "It's great to have something to dress up for. You know, I spent three years in slacks at drama school, so now I like putting a dress on."

Here are some of the outfits that have propelled her to Fahion Icon staus:
