A stunning new videos offers a glimpse into Kenya’s changing political and cultural climates by chronicling the evolving styles of its women from the start of British colonization to Kenyan actress Lupito Nyong’o’s rise to fame.

The time-lapse video, which is part of Cut.com’s 100 Years of Beauty series, stars model Keesee Andrea, who is transformed again and again by a team of make-up artists and hair stylists recreating the East African country’s most popular beauty trends of the last ten decades.
Beginning in the 1910s, Keesee is morphed into a bare-faced beauty modeling dramatic jewelry, and the clip ends with the model emulating Lupito, who took home her first Oscar in 2014.
