Lupita Nyong’o brought her hair to new heights at the 2016 Met Gala this week, but the way Vogue covered her look inspired the actress to give a little lesson on black hair via her Instagram account.

It all started at Monday night’s gala, where the theme was “Manus x Machina” a.k.a. “man and machine” a.k.a. “robot stuff,” and Nyong’o walked the carpet looking fantastic:

What an elegant own. 

Vogue contributing editor André Leon Talley had spoken to Nyong’o on the red carpet that evening and said her hair reminded him of a throwback Nina Simone, but unfortunately his commentary ended up being an aside in the Hepburn-centric blog post instead of a focal point.
