We don't think we've ever seen a newcomer sweep the entire fashion world off their feet as fast as the lovely Lupita Nyong'o. Case in point: Less than six months in the spotlight, she's already nabbed the coveted covers of W and Dazed & Confused, and a Miu Miu Spring 2014 campaign (alongside fellow actresses Elle Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen, and Bella Heathcote). That has to be some sort of record, right?

Now that the 12 Years a Slave breakout star is a veritable 'It' girl, designers like Elie SaabRalph Lauren, Victoria BeckhamChanel and many more are clamoring to dress the style star. Clearly her stylist Micaela Erlanger has some serious pull—pun-intended.

Come to think of it, Nyong'o must be the dream client. Not only can she wear anything (Anything. ANYTHING.), she has yet to land on anyone's worst dressed list. Girlfriend can do no wrong. Below, five reasons why everyone is enthralled with her style—and of course, her.

1) She's Still a Bit Mysterious: Lupita is often seen and rarely heard, which makes her even more enigmatic. Couple that with a seriously stunning figure that looks as if it was designed specifically for sexy LBD's, it's quite easy to see why the world can't get enough.

2) She's Sooooo Chic: Regardless how fitted, revealing, or over-embellished her frocks may be, Lupita carries herself with such regality; her aura makes everything look utterly elegant. Plus, her creamy cocoa-color complexion glistens in metallics and pastels.

3) She Knows What Works For Her: Lithe and petite, when in doubt, Lupita knows a simple body-skimming sheath is her home base. And as you can see, color doesn't matter—she can also wear vibrant primary colors with absolute aplomb.

4) She's Having Fun With Her New Found Fashion Fame: Sometimes Lupita likes to keep it playful. Whether it's paisley or floral or stripes, she can pull off powerful prints, too. Apparently she's never met a funky print she didn’t love.

5) She's Bold and (Obviously) Beautiful: She has a ridiculously vast lipstick wardrobe; in fact, there isn't a color she hasn't worn. And most women in her position would have had mermaid-length hair extensions installed by now. Not Lupita—her crop is the edgy cherry on top. This new stair-step version of her boy-cut is all kinds of everything.
