He’s worked with the biggest names in the business, and now Nigel Barker has his sights set on working with Hollywood “It” girl Lupita Nyong’o.
In an exclusive interview with Life & Style, The Face star reveals his desire to get the Best Actress Oscar winner behind the camera.
“It would be a dream to do a shoot with her,” the famed photographer dishes to Life & Style.
“She is definitely at the top of my life of people I want to work with.”
In fact, Nigel’s such a fan, he says the 31-year-old 12 Years a Slave star was the “highlight” of the 86th Annual Academy Awards Sunday night.
“The blue dress was gorgeous. It was a little princess-y, but if there were ever a moment for a dress like that to be worn, then that was certainly it,” he shares.

“It’s her first movie and she won an Oscar for it! The dress couldn’t have been a better choice for this. It was a fairytale moment.”
On Sunday, the stunning actress arrived to the red carpet in a Prada gown and an Alice headband, which Nigel says was “edgy” and “perfect.”
And like everyone at home watching, he was floored by her beautiful acceptance speech.
“It was so eloquent,” he says. “It was one of the best Oscar speeches ever.”
