Lupita Nyong'o In Elie Saab - '12 Years a Slave' Paris PremiereLupita Nyong’o played the ultimate lady in red, when she attended the ’12 Years a Slave’ Paris premiere that was held today.

The actress was a crimson beauty in her Elie Saab Resort 2014 frock that was completely encased in softly sparkling sequins. A subtle, sheer geometric pattern that ran through the dress added visual interest.

Complementary David Yurman earrings, along with ruby Nicholas Kirkwood heels, completed the look.

Where a red lippie would have been expected, Lupita went the alternate route and painted on a clear gloss, which translated just as impeccably.
