#GlamOfficial | How Lupita Nyong’O Slayed ‘Queen of Katwe’ Premieres One Head Wrap At A Time!

Mary Katrantzou (in Toronto)

Talk about paying attention to detail or do I say using what you have to get what you want?

By now, I’m sure most of us have gotten wind of a certain African Disney movie titled Queen of Katwe, holding its premieres around the world. Even if you haven’t,  you must have one way or the other seen Oscar winner, Lupita Nyong’O‘s new favourite accessory – the head wrap.

She described this new style direction as “going with the theme of the movie”. She also added, “they are my crowns. It’s the quintessential African accessory”

I have to give it to her team and the promo direction of the movie. Now that’s how you use what you have to get what you want. It is the first African Disney movie, so how else do you create attention around it?
