Lupita Nyong'o's Vogue cover is finally here!

After months of speculation, crossed fingers and utter obsession over whether the Oscar winning-actress would land a spot on the coveted glossy, the moment has arrived.

Vogue capture the 31-year-old star for its July issue in the enchanting city of Marrakech. Nyong'o looks stunning for the cover, which was shot by Mikael Jansson, in a printed Prada dress that perfectly reflects her colorful style. In fact, Nyong'o's entire editorial spread is just as bold and beautiful as she is.

Between her head-turning looks on the red carpet, fronting Miu Miu's Spring/Summer 2014 campaign and becoming the first-ever black brand ambassador for Lancôme, it was only a matter of time before the Kenyan beauty made her Vogue debut.

And here is it! What do you think?
