Mobolaji has previous worked at Fader and Style.com, taking to his Instagram to document his projects with movie stars such as Jared Leto for the men’s mag.

Meanwhile Lupita has always expressed an interest in style in the past.

As well as putting on endless show-stopping displays at red carpet events, she revealed to Vogue magazine that as a child in Nairobi: ‘I read American, British, and a few African magazines. Then I would design my own clothes.’

Judging by Mobolaji’s Instagram, the new couple have managed to make time for each other despite Lupita’s hectic schedule recently.

She has just finished filming new Disney film Queen of Katwe, which follows Phiona Mutesi, a Ugandan chess prodigy who finds great success at the Women’s Chess Olympiads.

The film was entirely shot in South Africa and Uganda, and is set to premiere at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival on September 10.

The Kenyan-born actress has also just wrapped promotion for Jon Favreau’s blockbuster remake of The Jungle Book, in which she portrayed Raksha, a female Indian wolf who is Mowgli’s adoptive mother.

And now, after the release of the new Star Wars film in last year, Lupita is set to begin filming on its sequel.

Playing a pirate and longtime friend of Han Solo and Chewbacca in the popular franchise, Lupita anticipates the Rian Johnson film’s release on December 15.
