Lupita Nyong’o is having quite the busy start to 2016. Besides all the end-of-year buzz for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” the actress is prepping for her Broadway debut in the play “Eclipsed.”
Nyong’o, who is also one of Footwear News‘ favorite fashion mavens, stopped by “The Today Show” this morning to talk about her role and wowed everyone with a pair of purple pumps by SJP Collection and a purple dress by Michael Kors. The look packed quite a punch.
Nyong’o’s role in “Eclipsed” is a challenging one. The play, written by Danai Gurira and is directed by Liesl Tommy, tells the story of women affected by political upheaval in Liberia. Previews for the show start Feb. 23.
