Red Carpet Style Watch: Lupita Nyong’o is Best Dressed


Rising actress Lupita Nyong’o is currently nominated for an Oscar for her amazing performance in ’12 Years a Slave’ and has been hitting the red carpet during awards season to support the film with the rest of the cast. With plenty of critical praise flooding in for her acting skills, Lupita has also been lauded for her flawless sense of style each time she makes an appearance and has quickly become a style star.

Always modern, subtly fashion-forward and elegant, Lupita’s effortless dress-sense continues to stand out and she never seems to make a style mistake. Playing with bright block colours (like the above emerald green silk gown) as well as muted beige and champagne tones, Lupita experiments with silhouettes and styles, but always looks graceful and not over styled as many others do. Not faithful to just one designer, Lupita has her pick of fashion houses and has been seen in everything from Chanel to Gucci.

Completing her looks with a statement clutch, heels and earrings, Lupita is also happy to coordinate her beauty look and has tried bright eyeshadows and lipsticks which has stood out in a sea of minimal makeup which is so often what most stars opt for. Her overall look always flatters her and looks graceful.

With the Oscars just around the corner, her biggest red carpet moment is almost upon her and we’re dying to see what outfit she has planned for what will be the highlight of her career so far, even if she doesn’t end up taking home the Oscar on the night. She will no doubt be topping every best dressed list!
