Nyong'o, famous for her glamorous style, favored a much more low-key look as a teen. In fact, Nyong'o once told Lucky magazine she was barred from wearing makeup until almost 18.

“Honestly, my mother’s outlook was hard for me to take when I was a teenager and I wanted to experiment," she said. "But in the end I appreciated it, because today I can look in a mirror with no makeup on and love myself.”

These days, the 32-year-old rocks a wide variety of looks on the red carpet and the big screen, including a motion-capture getup for her role as Maz Kanata in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."
