KENYAN actress Lupita Nyong'o has landed yet another cover page in a top magazine.

The breakout star of the 12 Years a Slave blockbuster has been tapped as the cover girl for DuJour's magazine winter 2013 issue.

The steadily rising screen star is not only receiving Oscar buzz for her compelling performance, but is also taking the fashion world by storm, as demonstrated by her red carpet high-end fashion choices, and her latest spread.

The magazine, that has featured Kim Kardashian, Nicole Kidman, Julianne Moore, Robert Deniro and Nicole Richie among other A-List celebrity names, portrays the Kenyan beauty in her defining moment. She wore Rodarte, Roberto Cavalli, Narcisco Rodrique, Salvatore Ferragamo among others and was shot by Steven Pan and styled by David Vandewal.

She said in an interview: "Lots of people come up and touch my back and want to give me a hug. At this point, it's not too crazy. I let them hug me. When you're a public figure, people have an ownership of you in a way."

In February next year, the 30-year-old actress will hit theatres again, in Non-Stop, a thriller that she will star alongside Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore.
