Lupita Nyong’o In J. Mendel – 2013 Hollywood Film Awards

Lupita Nyong'o In J Mendel - 2013 Hollywood Film Awards

Lupita Nyong’o attended the 17th Annual Hollywood Film Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in California yesterday evening.

Continuing her epic red carpet run, the actress wore a J. Mendel sleeveless gown with a keyhole detail in a bright-yellow hue, making her skin look even more radiant.

Gold Monique Pean jewels, a silver Judith Leiber clutch and Jean-Michel Cazabat heels accessorized her look.

On this occasion her makeup artist applied a copper eye shadow and orange lip colour. I have never tried an orange lip before; this has inspired me to give it a go.

Putting my thumb over her clutch, this look is definitely in her Top 10 of the 11 looks we have seen from her so far.

    She is not even one to watch, really, she’s right up there, I’ve never seen anyone with this much poise, confidence and sure style so early in the game. BDOTW!

  4. Yeliz October 22, 2013 at 11:33 #

    Stunning as always. The colour looks divine against her skin tone. Definitely one of my favourite looks of her and BDOTW worthy.

      I’m going to call this sunflower yellow, and she is definitely ‘in bloom’!!!

  5. Christine October 22, 2013 at 12:58 #

    Love!!! BDOTW worthy. She is on a roll.

  6. DM October 22, 2013 at 13:00 #

    WoW! I can’t stop staring. Great look as usual. Color, styling, proportions…she does it SO well each time.

  7. Larissa October 22, 2013 at 13:01 #

    She looks great in black but when she wears colours she really is oustanding! Shes is definitely the one to beat.

  8. CreoleLady October 22, 2013 at 13:15 #

    She’s setting a standard that more than a few red carpet veterans can’t meet. If she keeps this up, she’s not only a “Best Newcomer” shoo-in but a “Most Consistent” contender too.

  9. dee October 22, 2013 at 13:50 #

    Gorgeous.

  10. Nat October 22, 2013 at 13:50 #

    Ok, let’s shut the internet down people, ‘coz this girl wins EVERYTHING.

  11. Alina October 22, 2013 at 13:54 #

    Just… WOW!

  12. Lashae October 22, 2013 at 13:58 #

    I love it. I think every outfit she’s worn this Awards season I have loved.

  13. Dean October 22, 2013 at 14:05 #

    Beautiful! She’s on such a roll!

  14. set October 22, 2013 at 14:31 #

    She has IT.

  15. amy October 22, 2013 at 15:59 #

    great dress,phenomenal makeup. i mean that girl is just killing it

  16. glenn October 22, 2013 at 16:26 #

    What i love the most about Lupita, is that she’s not afraid of color, can you imagine what she is gonna wear at the oscars, this girl is everything.

    • julyol1972 October 22, 2013 at 17:02 #

      I literally just gasped when I saw her. As a darker skinned woman, I’ve never tried orange either, FC. But she definitely makes me want to try, at least.

      Lord, this woman is on such a roll. If the Gods are good, she’ll kill it come awards season.

  17. Maine October 22, 2013 at 16:57 #

    Not only is she unfairly gorgeous, but she’s poised, confident and doesn’t run from color and interesting makeup choices. My Queen.

  18. kane October 22, 2013 at 17:39 #

    Wow!

  19. anonymous as always October 22, 2013 at 18:42 #

    My best look from her! I adore this colour on her!!!

  20. Daisy October 22, 2013 at 21:49 #

    She’s different. Poised and confident al that. Just a good contrast from the usual Hollywood. I personally do not find her exceptionally beautiful.

  21. lisapizza October 22, 2013 at 22:12 #

    Love the color!! She’s so poised and entrancing! I love the orange lip and how the application fades so it’s not too crazy — her makeup artist and stylist do wonders with her gorgeous skin tone. BDOTW!!!

    I love her style and so far she has yet to have a misstep. My only wish is that she wouldn’t wear so many brands that clearly do not wish to associate themselves with our race (Prada!). Mendel isn’t bad but he could be much better when it comes to using black models in his ads and runways. Celebs need to be aware if this and make conscious decisions of not associating themselves with racist ( yes that word!) brands.

    • KatieKate October 23, 2013 at 03:03 #

      Tbh, if celebs-black, asian, hispanic,etc, chose not to wear brands that didn’t discriminate against their race, we’d have a lot of naked people on the RC.

      • KatieKate October 23, 2013 at 03:04 #

        *that do, rather

      • Prudence October 23, 2013 at 05:54 #

        That is completely untrue. The list might not be long but there are some.

    • msd October 24, 2013 at 16:16 #

      Maybe a carrot is more effective than a stick? Lupita, by virtue of looking so good in the designs, could actually inspire brands to be more diverse in their castings. Whereas refusing to wear something may not have much effect if there are still twenty other people who would happily wear the clothes in her place.

  23. TeaAtTwo October 23, 2013 at 00:57 #

    This is absolutely magnificent, she looks stunning.

  24. KatieKate October 23, 2013 at 03:04 #

    She is EVERYthing!!!

  25. Dhppy October 23, 2013 at 18:10 #

    I’ll be the only one to say I’m not that crazy about that lip color on her, but it’s not as if anything to could distract from that beautiful face. Oh, those cheekbones! I love her poise, too. She always presents herself like a dancer. Lovely!

  26. snowlion October 25, 2013 at 12:33 #

    I don’t have a clue who she is (sorry), but gosh, she is unbelievably beautiful ( love everything).

  27. EmmaWoodhouse October 25, 2013 at 15:01 #

    She looks amazing. What poise and elegance, and just the right rich coloring for this. She has such gorgeous skin! The color is amazing on her. @ KatieKate, this is sunflower yellow! BDOTW worthy for sure.
