Lupita Nyong'o switches up her short hair for the March cover of Lucky

Lupita Nyong'o graces the March 2015 cover of Lucky magazine, looking like a Mondrian painting come to life in a color-blocked Balmain ensemble, and we can't seem to take our eyes off that 'fro of hers.


Fluffy, shaggy, and blown out, it's giving us early Diana Ross vibes, with tons of rumpled, bed-head oomph.


Some might think that short hair is boring, destined to be same, all the time — but the Oscar-winning actress proves them wrong: There's seemingly no end to her ever-changing styles. With the haircut perfectly framing her face, the Lancôme brand ambassador finishes off the cover look with flawless, natural makeup from the brand and a sleek pair of golden hoops. Proof: Simple can be stunning!
