Yesterday I showed you a beautiful terrace and garden on the Ain Kassimou estate in Marrakech that belongs to socialite Marella Agnelli, and today I decided to stay there. Actress Lupita Nyong'o, who won an Oscar for her role in 12 Years a Slave (2013), is on the cover of Vogue US, the July issue, and inside the magazine is an editorial that was shot by Mikael Jansson in Marrakech.
I wasn't sure whether to create a NOTES À LA MODE post or to combine these three images (my favourites from the shoot) with home décor in Moroccan style, because, honestly, I couldn't care less about the clothes Lupita appears in. Apart from the jewellery pieces by e.g. Cara Croninger, Pebble London and Jonas Studio (I'm not a jewellery person but I love statement necklaces), it were the tiles, cushions, spices and Moroccan people in the background and foreground that caught my attention.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
