Style Icon: Lupita Nyong'o

At Son of a Sailor, we're all about bright colors. We believe that a playful pop of neon coral or mustard yellow can really make an outfit. When it comes to support for this philosophy, we have to look no further than Lupita Nong'o.

After breaking in to the Hollywood scene less than two years ago, Lupita has already earned fashion icon status, thanks in part to her fearless use of color. Seriously, she has worn every color. And she looked phenomenal in all of them. (Remember that amazing graphic that circulated last year, showing her rainbow of outfits?)

Seeing her crop up on every best dressed list for the SAG awards yesterday reminded us of her brilliance. We could go on about the many ways in which Lupita inspires us-- her talent, her philosophy, her touching speeches-- but for now, we salute her brilliant fashion sense. Bravo!
