Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong’0 is known for slaying the red carpets and turning heads at events. With show-stopping hairdos, striking makeup looks and a plethora of top designers in her circle – it’s no wonder why she always ends up on the best-dressed list at every event.

The star’s latest outing? A trip to Pakistan for a week-long ceremony for her friends – Fisher Neal and Misha Japanwala‘s Desi wedding. The East Asian country is known for fashion with rich cultural heritage, bold structured designs, heavy embroidery and bright, beautiful coloured clothing.

Tagging her posts #DesiDiary Lupita has been filling our mood boards with ornate looks from native designers and wearing indigenous styles like the Shalwar Kameez, Sari and Lehenga designs and more. On her birthday which she spent in Karachi, the Sulwe author posed for some photos by the beach wearing a Lehenga set from sustainability-focused Indian fashion house Anita Dongre.
