Lupita Nyong’o made a guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel last night (January 14) where she talked about going from being a student at Yale, to starring in ’12 Years A Slave’, to meeting people she’s starstruck over like Leonardo DiCaprio at The Golden Globes on Sunday.

With her fashion-icon status all but sealed, every item she wears will come under closer scrutiny, but she appears to be taking it all in her stride. Even Jimmy commented on her dress during this interview.

The actress wore a sporty Jonathan Cohen Spring 2014 frock featuring a surfer print in a cool-blue hue, with matching pumps and a bright-red lip rounding out her look.

Her short ‘do was again side parted, this time in two places, as she continued to pay homage to the formidable Grace Jones.
