Lupita Nyong'o In Lanvin - 23rd Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards

Lupita Nyong’o attended the IFP’s 23rd Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards held at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City yesterday evening.

The actress was a vision of modern elegance, wearing a pretty Lanvin white strapless dress with a grosgrain bow detail from the Spring 2014 ‘Blanche’ Collection.

Kicking her black-pump habit into touch (for now), she donned Lanvin red silk-satin pumps with virgule stiletto heels, with a black-and-white-flecked python Lanvin ‘Sea Breeze’ minaudière with crystal detailing and Fred Leighton jewels accessorizing her look.

I can’t say I am crazy about the red and white together; I don’t think the red pumps really do much for the look as they disappear into the red carpet.

The black-cherry lip I do love.
