Lupita Nyong'o has been #travelgoals this week, documenting a very stylish visit to the Moroccan city of Marrakech.

The Us actress was in town for the Dior Cruise 2020 collection show, which took place on April 29, but she seems to have extended her trip, as she is still posting photos from lush hotel grounds, sat with friends in a majlis-style set-up and posing in hotel courtyards.

"Marrakech is 🔥🔥," Nyong'o captioned her Instagram snaps.

By all accounts, the Dior show was a major fashion occasion.

Set at El Badi Palace, the show featured an enormous outdoor runway, lit with dozens of floating tealights. The French label crisscrossed cultures and continents at its first fashion show in Morocco on Monday, with beaded dresses and patterned prints taking centre stage.

Nyong'o was not the only star in attendance, however; Big Little Lies star Shailene Woodley, the band Haim and actress Jessica Alba were all also at the show.

"Dior and Maria Grazia Chiuri debuted their new collection in a palace in Marrakech," Woodley wrote on Instagram.

"The artistry , the attention to detail, the balance between every element at play ... light and dark, feminine and masculine, freedom and constriction, effortless and chic, delicious and nonchalant ... these are the things that have always made Dior Dior to me, and i’m still swooning that I got to be here for this absolutely stunning show ... thank you for your art [sic]. "
