Actress Lupita Nyong’o has become a force to be reckoned with since her heart wrenching performance as Patsey in the film “12 Years a Slave”. The role earned her a 2014 Academy Award and much deserved recognition and praise in Hollywood. But alongside her Yale University honed acting expertise, Lupita has become well known for her elegant fashion choices as well. While making the rounds during the very busy award circuit following the release of “12 Years a Slave”, Hollywood media and the fashion world both took notice of Lupita’s impeccable style and her ability to make any outfit look absolutely wonderful. If Lupita attends an event, chances are she will be considered the best-dressed actress on the red carpet.
At the 2014 BAFTA Awards, Lupita looked stunning in this emerald green gown by Dior Couture. The gown’s dramatic train complemented Lupita’s small frame and the gold belt and wrist cuffs accessorized the look perfectly. Lupita’s rich and radiant skin tone makes colors like this Dior emerald green look vibrant and gorgeous.
The “Nairobi Blue” hue of Lupita’s custom made Prada gown at the Academy Awards also benefits from Lupita’s beauty. Lupita said that she chose the light blue color because it reminds her of her home in Kenya. The heavenly blue gown fit her perfectly, with pleating at the plunging V-neck and on the ethereal skirt, which had sparkly piping throughout. She then completed the look with gold jewelry and a dainty headband. Absolute perfection.
