Lupita Nyong'o's Michael Soi Tote Is The Perfect Vacation Handbag

Leave it to Lupita Nyong'o to discover the ideal beach bag or vacation purse for any occasion!

The "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" actress posted a joyful snap to her Instagram and Facebook pages on Thursday, to show off her new tote from Nairobi-based designer Michael Soi. The bold, vibrant and colourful purse features a large close-up portrait of a woman in sunglasses and a pearl necklace, while her "assistant extraordinaire's" bag boasts a similar silhouette and colour palate.

The 32-year-old Oscar winner is currently in Kenya on vacation, and is also volunteering with the WildAid conservation organization to help African elephants. Nyong'o also tagged the Kikoti fashion line in her celebratory shopping post to support Hands Off Our Elephants, an anti-poaching and anti-ivory campaign.

In the hour since she shared her photo, the "Non-Stop" star earned over 16,700 likes on Facebook and 28,600 likes on Instagram, respectively. Designer Soi has also weighed in, writing, "Very welcome Lupita" on Nyong'o's Facebook page.
