Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o attended the wedding of celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson and his partner Jason Backe in NYC yesterday and posted the above Instagram pic with a message congratulating the newlyweds:

"I witnessed the man who adds so much beauty to my life legalize his beautiful marriage. Thank you for the reminder that love and its declaration can be simple. Congratulations @tedgibsonbeauty."

Gibson sent back a message of thanks to the actress via Instagram:

What a fun evening thank you @lupitanyongo for making it so special xo

Meanwhile, Lupita's name has been linked to a host of upcoming projects. But up until now, she's only officially signed on to star in the highly-anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII, which has just begun filming.
However, the Kenyan beauty recently revealed she's acquired the rights to adapt the Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie novel Americanah into a film, which she will both star in and produce.
The epic love story tells the tale of young Nigerians Ifemelu and Obinze, whose romance is tested when Ifemelu emigrates to America to get a university education while her boyfriend winds up in London.
They face the toughest decision of their lives when they are later reunited in their homeland.
