Lupita Nyong'o became the newest fashion IT girl not by happenstance, but because she and her stylist Michaela are a dream team, of sorts.  Check out why the Oscar winner and her Non-Stop co-star Michelle Dockery (that's Lady Mary to our fellow "Downton Abbey fans") are rocking the cover of The Hollywood Reporter...

Lupita and her stylist Macaela Erlanger have taken the fashion world by storm.  So the stylist found herself atop the 25 Most Powerrful Stylists list in the new issue of THR.

Interestingly, Lupita's co-star Michelle Dockery introduced her to Micaela while they were filming Non-Stop, as Michelle is also a client.  And the rest is history.  The gorgeous YBF chick said about the cover:

My fabulous stylist Micaela Erlanger and her muses on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter! So proud of her! @houseoferlanger @theladydockers #ThreesCompany

28-year-old Micaela, who graduated from the Parsons The New School for Design with her BA in Design and Management, dished on her collaboration with Lupita this Awards season saying:

"It’s been a whirlwind, that’s for sure...It’s the little touches that a stylist can do that can take an actress from being part of the pack into really standing out...Stardom is often built around fashion.”

“I think the moment that really changed the game was her in the red Ralph Lauren gown.  That, to me, really solidified her as an icon, as a star.”

Agreed!  Kerry Washington and her stylist also made the list.  Check out THR for more.

By the way, reports now state that Somali rapper K'Naanreally may be Lupita's new man.  We've heard the rumor for a few months now, and the rumor mill flipped into high gear when the two were spotted hugging it out the morning after the Oscars.  But many thought they were maybe just friends...especially since K'Naan was believed to be married.

But, Us Weekly now states K'Naan is divorced.  And he and Lupita are a new item...but pretty low key about it all.  A source told the mag Lupita hasn't yet met his two kids because they are "taking it slow". 

We're keping our eyes on these two....
