Lupita, CFDA presenter

To Womenswear Designer of the Year...

Since her Oscar-winning portrayal as Patsey in 12 Years a Slave, Lupita Nyong'o has become the obsession of our screens and wardrobes alike - only thanks in part to her intelligence and humility.

In the midst of the demand for the actress (Lupita is the new face for Lancôme, as well as being in talks to star in The Jungle Book remake), she has now been confirmed as a presenter at the CFDA Fashion Awards.

She will be presenting the award for Womenswear Designer of the Year, which is currently being decided between Alexander Wang, Joseph Altuzurra and Marc Jacobs.

The CFDA's decision to opt for Lupita to present to fashion royalty doesn't come as a surprise with the actress' continuous ability to score high in the style stakes.

The ceremony will take place on June 2 in New York.
