    Lupita Nyong'o is a name you must know — and not just for her critically acclaimed debut role in Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave . Sure, critics across the board are already labeling her as this year's best supporting actress (how's that for a confidence boost?), but the girl's also got killer style, which we've seen at premiere after premiere.
