Peter Nyong’o Schools Critics Over Dress


Lupita Nyong’o’s little brother, Peter Nyong’o, made time to clap back at critics over a dress.

Lupita Nyong’o is known for her fashion sense and always slaying the Red Carpet. Well, let’s just say the exquisite fashion runs in the family.

This week, Lupita Nyong’o’s brother, Peter, shook all of Twitter when he reacted to a critic who called him out for his love of dresses.

Monday, allAfrica posted an article on their Twitter and stated, “Lupita’s Brother Thinks He Looks Good in Dresses.” They attached a photo of Peter wearing a striped, hot pink maxi dress.

Peter reacted to the article in the best way.

“Lol. I don’t ‘think’… I know,” Peter responded in a tweet. He then decided to put the icing on the cake by tweeting “Thank u, next….” in reference to Ariana Grande’s highly acclaimed single.

We are glad that Peter defended his choice to wear a dress, and to be quite honest, he slayed it.


It is great to see a man that is not afraid to be fluid. Peter has every right to become a style icon. Hilariously, a fan asked Peter where he got the dress, and he admitted that he got it at Target.

Kudos to Peter for being unapologetic.
