Lupita Nyong'o In Victoria Beckham - '12 Years A Slave' Cocktail Party hosted by InStyle

Lupita Nyong’o is the actress everyone’s talking about, and now every designer wants to dress. So Victoria Beckham must be thrilled to see Lupita wearing one of her dresses at yesterday’s (Janaury 11) ’12 years a Slave’ Cocktail Party hosted by InStyle.

I love Lupita’s ability to wear such vibrant colour and bold accessories like the pointed Preen by ALDO pumps and glistening Edie Parker clutch here. She looks so bright and refreshing, and the body-hugging dress with deep V neck-line is perfect for showing off this rising stars amazingly toned body.

Lupita is on a roll with stand-out dresses, and has of course wowed in yellow before, when it was the turn of J. Mendel at the 2013 Hollywood Film Awards.

The finishing touch? Red carpet-worthy Kuwait jewels and bold, colourful eye make-up and nails, just the way we like it.
