Fans’ reactions

Lupita’s latest look, featuring a henna-tattooed bald head and a vibrant saree, has left social media users in awe. One user praising the actress wrote, "I applaud this, multiple layers of culture baked in here." Another person highlighted, "Y’all see this?! This is what you call cultural appreciation."

A third user expressed their admiration and described Lupita’s look as "the most gorgeous thing I’ve ever seen."

The actress, who only a month ago said goodbye to her "sisterlocks," recently made the decision to cut off all of her hair. She appeared in a photo sporting her new appearance. The caption said, "Happy without hair."
