Lupita Nyong’o In Chrisitan Dior – 86th Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon

Lupita Nyong'o In Chrisitan Dior - 86th Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon

Lupita Nyong’o attended the 86th Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Monday (February 10) in Beverly Hills, California.

Reaffirming her love for colour and prints; the ’12 Years A Slave’ actress wore a lilac Christian Dior Spring 2014 satin sleeveless dress, featuring a bold orange glycines print which she styled with a purple Judith Leiber clutch which matched her favoured velvet Paul Andrew shoes.

Christian Dior ‘Mise en Dior’ blue earrings and a Sandy Leong ring also accessorized her look.

Once again I find myself not warming to those Paul Andrew shoes. On this occasion they weigh down the look. I also wish the top half of her dress fit her better.

This is just OK for me.

    Her makeup is gorgeous!

  • the ogre

    I actually don’t mind the dress on her at all but I wish it had fit her better. The styling is not quite the best but I’m sure this is a small misstep. She can’t always get it right all the time. That’s too much pressure.

  • Camille

    The fit is definitely off, perhaps she just needed a better bra. I totally agree, the shoes are awful and do nothing for this look. With tweaking and different styling, this could have been a lovely look for her.

  • Leeann

    The print is really pretty if only it fit better. Dior has a burnt orange resort shoe which would have worked perfectly

  • Alina

    Lupita, please stay away from Dior!
    Her makeup is perfect, as always.

  • kane

    If the fit had been pitch-perfect, the dress could have been great. The styling however is baffling to put it nicely.

  • Anne Gallagher

    Not quite a miss, but she could have done better. The problem is that she has been so perfect on the red carpet this awards seasons that there is the expectation that she will always bat it out of the park. Even the best hitters strike out occasionally. Also, she needs new shoes.

  • Shara

    Love how her earrings and shoes match. Beautiful dress too, but not her usual jaw-dropping self. Speaking of Dior and Academy Awards nominees, where is Jennifer Lawrence?

    • dedel

      She is in Atlanta, on the set of the Hunger Games

  • dee

    The dress is pretty but those shoes gotta go.

  • CreoleLady

    Why consistently fit issues with Dior? Love the colors but nothing else. I am very concerned, hope she is not limited to Dior/Prada/MiuMiu, all of which I like on an exception-basis only.

  • Yeliz

    I adore her and totally enjoy her red carpet style but she just can’t get it right on the shoe department. On this case the dress is also just OK.

    Btw, I saw ’12 Years A Slave’ this evening and Lupita’s acting was amazing.

    from the photos I saw on getty images the fit actually didn’t look that bad.Anyway I still think she is allowed to have misteps even though she is fashion’s new it girl

  • Christine

    Not liking the shoes. Hope she can retire them! The dress is ok

  • Rebecca Z

    A rare miss. The fabric looks like my grandmother’s drapes in the 50’s.

  • cca

    Make up, hair still perfection

  • shap_half

    She has been so amazing for so long that the flaws on this outfit are just that much more obvious. I actually love the velvet pumps on their own, but not with this dress, which fits her so poorly. For someone who has been doing so well, you would think that fit flaws would never be an issue. An unexpected misstep from Lupita.

  • from-chitown

    Don’t like this look on Lupita. The fit of the dress at the bust is very distracting.
