The first of the month is always a busy time at Ink and the last 24 hours has been no exception.
Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o is gracing the cover of December’s Rhapsody for United Airlines – and the world media is following her every move.
On Saturday night she teased her fans on social media with a video of the magazine rolling off the presses and followed it up a day later to reveal the beautiful cover in its full glory. Shot by Yu Tasi, the cover went viral at an electric pace and has already been “liked” by 45,000 people and seen by readers of the Mail online, ABC news, US Magazine, E! news and Perez Hilton – to name just a few who all featured this breaking story. United Airlines also posted the feature on their social platforms and the brands that Lupita was wearing, jumped on the bandwagon to also promote this powerful editorial shoot and article.
