I really loved this! It looks like it was as much fun to make, as it is to watch. It actually gave me some ideas for a series I’ve been thinking about.
But in short, Lupita Nyong’o, who is featured on the October cover of Vogue magazine (I shared a few of the sublime photos of her from the issue, in which she previewed fall couture collections) participated in the magazine’s “73 Questions” series (which I’m told is popular, although I have to admit that I’m not familiar; then again, I don’t read Vogue).
The entire Q&A was of course videotaped, as we see Ms. Nyong’o gallivant around what I assume is Vogue magazine HQ, as she preps for the shoot – from make-up, to wardrobe, and beyond – all while answering a wide range of questions posed by the man behind the camera; like, what a typical breakfast would be for her, her favorite movie in the “Star Wars” franchise, best way to spend a Saturday in Brooklyn (she lives in Brooklyn), her favorite living musician, her favorite non-living musician, her most influential fashion icon, her favorite beverage and who she’d like to share it with, and much, much more. There are 73 questions after all.
She also showcases her hula-hoop skills later in the video (while still answering questions of course).
It was likely all rehearsed, but it’s still fun to watch:
