Where is the Banana Skirt? Lupita Nyong’o made the Vogue US cover. It was about time wasn’t it? Isn’t it a little too late, though? I mean if you are going to be late to the party then at least make a grand entrance like the September issue. Also, was Mario Testino not available? Not to discredit Mikael Jansson, who photographed the Kenyan model-turned-actress beautifully.
It is a truly wonderful editorial, but I can’t help but wonder if this is the best that they could have come up with. All that is missing in this piece is the Banana Skirt.
