Lupita Nyong'o is welcoming summer with open arms. The actress recently soaked up some sun while flaunting her luminous skin in a beautiful bikini set that her fans are obsessed about.

Taking to her Instagram, the "Black Panther" star served a photo showing off her toned body. Even her colorful African print bikini could not dull the natural glow of her goregous skin.

Nyong'o held on to the branch arch at the entrance outdoors. Slightly tilting her body, she pushed one of her legs forward and looked away from the lense while posing.

The actress tied her long braids into a thick high bun. The netizens fell in love with the shot and took to the comment section to gush about her beauty.

Nyong'o's bikini is not only beautiful, but it has a special meaning, too. The Ohana Swimwear number is called "Maisa," an African Swahili that means "life."

Each color has a unique meaning. The color green signifies life, growth and good health, blue represents peace, togetherness, love and harmony, and yellow symbolizes wealth and royalty.

Together, the patterns are meant to signify "unity in diversity." How amazing is that! The bikini retails for an affordably $27. The Black-owned business is based in Kenya.

Nyong'o, who was born in Mexico and raised in Kenya, is all set to grace her fans' screens again in a limited series adaptation of "Lady in the Lake" alongside Natalie Portman.

In the Apple TV+ show based on the murder-mystery novel by Laura Lippman, Nyong'o plays Cleo Sherwood, a mother who handles multiple jobs and strives to advance Baltimore's Black progressive agenda.

This is Nyong'o's first leading role in a major platform or network. She was previously working on "Americanah," but the scheduling delays brought on by the pandemic led HBO Max to drop the project.
