Lupita Nyong’o arrived at the Met Gala in a gorgeous green Calvin Klein Collection dress but it was her haute hair that had people abuzz.
The following morning Vogue dropped an article questioning whether the Eclipsed star was the new Audrey Hepburn. Say wha? They but a side by side comparing Lupita’s look to a 1963 Vogue shoot that Audrey Hepburn did with conal hair.
Yup. They tried it.
NPR clarified Tuesday that the hairstyle signifies wealth in specific African communities,
“A towering hairdo has historically signified a person’s tribal background, rank in society — or a wife’s ability to live a life of leisure because of her husband’s wealth.”
What’s even more surprising about Vogue’s error is that Lupita specifically told Andre Leon Talley the hairstyle is a tribute to African communities as well as to the late musician Nina Simone.
Lupita gave a classy clapback via Instagram posting a photo of her hair on the left and moving images of Nina Simone and African women. She tagged her hairstylist Vernon Francois and Vogue Magazine.
Lupita is clearly not here for cultural appropriation and here to educate the masses.
