Lupita Nyong'o is embracing her "pasta body" after vacationing in Italy.

On Saturday, the Oscar winner, 39, took to Instagram to share a side-by-side comparison of how she looked at the start and end of her Italian getaway — going, as she put it, "from summer body to pasta body in one week."

Not that the actress minds her new curves. "I love them both," wrote the Us star, who is seen happily cradling her new curves while posing in a leopard-print string bikini for the second shot. Nyong'o, who attended Dolce & Gabbana's Alta Moda fashion show in Rome last week, also added body-positive hashtags like #EnjoyYourBody and #BodyBonding to her post.

Fans of the Black Panther star praised her for sharing her relatable experience.

"All hail the pasta body — my favorite kind," read one comment.

"Love mine too," chimed in another commenter.

"Literally just happened to me because I ate shrimp alfredo fettuccine," another fan wrote.

"Pasta body every time," a commenter added.
