Lupita Nyong’o In Proenza Schouler – W Magazine ‘Best Performances’ Portfolio Celebration

Lupita Nyong'o In Proenza Schouler - W Magazine 'Best Performances' Portfolio Celebration

Lupita Nyong’o attended the W Magazine celebration of the ‘Best Performances’ portfolio held at Chateau Marmont on Thursday (January 9) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress, who is creating a lot of buzz for awards season – not only for her performance in ’12 Years a Slave’ but also for her savvy style – wore a Proenza Schouler Resort 2014 black dress, which she styled with a black-and-white PS ponyskin ‘Lunch’ clutch and black PS shoes, with Jennifer Meyer jewels completing the look.

I love the easy-wear vibe to her LBD, with its crossing-at-the-bodice cut-out detailing, but I don’t like the Grace Jones redux hairdo.

    Not liking the hairstyle or this look

    The dress looks fine on her and I like the clutch, but I don’t like the rest.

      Agreed. Unfortunately this is my least favorite overall look of hers.

    She is the new face of Miu Miu. She is in the Spring 2014 Campaign.
    THis girl is on fire! I just love her. Go Lupita!

    Exactly. Forget about being a newbie, her styling is SUPERB! I love everything about this look on Lupita. Love the dress especially. But, the hair was the first thing I noticed…please lets not see that again.

    I love the dress but that’s all.
    I don’t like the hairstyle, the clutch and the shoes, plus they are not working with the dress.

    Only like the clutch.

    this woman can do no wrong in my book! and i am personally delighted to see whatever she does to her hair as long as she doesn’t succumb to shoulder length extensions like almost every other black woman in H’wood! its empowering to see a woman of African descent own her beauty!!

      ITA! I was initially drawn to her specifically because we shared the same haircut, and she’d even inspired me to do some funky cuts, and parts into mine like she did. But this hair cut is not working for me at all!

      I like the dress, but not the shoes or the clutch! This is not a misstep per se, just a hiccup!

      • Serenity January 10, 2014 at 23:23 #

        Just a teeny tiny hiccup. I agree.

  8. Amanda January 10, 2014 at 16:16 #

    Loving everything about this look – including the hair. I love the way the dress shows off her beautiful shoulders and arms!

    Lupita darling, u are so gorge, tell them u are NO grace jones wannabe…….

    I actually love her hair. I like that she’s experimenting with different hairstyles. I wish her footwear was more exciting , though.

  11. Alina January 10, 2014 at 17:16 #

    IMO, this is Lupita’s first miss.

  12. Tag January 10, 2014 at 18:23 #

    Like the dress, but a different colour would have worked better – red or yellow, or even orange

  13. Rebecca Z January 10, 2014 at 20:44 #

    Not a fan of the hair or the dress or her makeup. But as someone said, this might be her first miss–who am I to complain?

  14. Jess2 January 12, 2014 at 10:00 #

    I actually really like this. Simple and chic.
