Lupita Nyong’o In J. Mendel – ’12 Years A Slave’ Movies For Grownups Film Festival Screening

Lupita Nyong'o In J Mendel - '12 Years A Slave' Movies For Grownups Film Festival Screening

Lupita Nyong’o attended the screening of ’12 Years A Slave’ at AARP’s Movies For Grownups Film Festival 2013 held at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Saturday prior to the Governors Awards 2013.

On this occasion she wore a very sophisticated look; some might even call this an ‘Anna Wintour dress’, such is the uptown nature of the J. Mendel micro-dot tweed sleeveless boat-neck fitted dress with black inserts at the waist and a flared skirt.

However, even Anna would’ve rocked a shorter version of this look, as I wish Lupita had.

Black Christian Louboutin pumps with a gold-studded toecap accessorized her look, along with a rare clear glossy lip.

    A shorter length was definitely needed.

    Definitely shorter, otherwise perfectly styled and… made up (?).

    Agree shorter would have been better, but I like this on her–the colors are great with her complexion and look at those buff arms and shoulders!

    This is not a good look. Sadly

    This look is fine if it hadn’t been for the length of the dress. Otherwise, once again, a well-styled look from her.

    I will also have to agree that the length here is not ideal. But she manages to look lovely, regardless. One more reason to love Lupita!

    I have loved almost everything she’s worn, but this gets a ‘no’ from me. I don’t like the length and and I’m not crazy about the colors either.

    She’s starting to slip, I haven’t liked her last few looks. They’ve lacked the “wow” factor that her earlier looks had. I have hope she’ll pick it up once award season kicks off though…

      Must be part of the strategy. Bringing the A-game only for majors ceremonies is smart, because we don´t want to have a Lupita fatigue yet. But she is so beautiful, that she still manages to look great in a grownup get-up, imo.
