Lupita Nyong’o In Stella McCartney – LoveGold Honors Academy Award Nominee Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita Nyong'o In Stella McCartney - LoveGold Honors Academy Award Nominee Lupita Nyong'o

Lupita Nyong’o wowed on the red carpet as she was honoured by LoveGold at Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles on Wednesday, (February 26).

Proving once again that this is the woman who can pull off serious colour, Lupita wore a spectacular blue Stella McCartney dress with cut-out detailing and satin waist band.

The Academy Awards Nominee opted for an on-trend all-blue look by accessorising with a pair of royal blue Christian Louboutin pumps, Elena Votsi globe drop earrings and a dark blue Rauwolf box clutch.

But the highlight of this look has to be the striking blue eyeshadow. Normally this would be an instant fail but here it makes Luptia’s eyes pop. But what do you think, is it too much or do you agree that it’s great to see such a bold make-up look?

And now that we’ve seen her try out green at the 2014 BAFTAs and pink at the Chanel party, what colour will it be for this weekend’s Oscars?

    She looks great but I don’t like the matchy-matchy styling !

    This is a miss for me. Don’t really like any of this. All this blue, the strong red lip, the assymetrical lip, the earrings. Nope, not my thing.

      *assymetrical dress

    Dare I predict a shade of yellow or gold for the Oscars? I don’t know, just guessing here. I like this look. The make up gives her face a painting-like look, in a good way. And I don’t mind the matchiness here, it looks pulled-together to me. A bold look, and if you can carry it off like this, why not? Go Lupita!

      My first thought was something golden as well. I don’t normally watch the Oscars, but this year I have to see what this stunning woman is going to wear.

    Hoping the orange-ish copper phase is over. Love her in this truly electric blue. J’adore the beauty look, only she. That red lip, gorgeous.

    I think it all works – she looks stunning. I think that maybe higher standards are being applied to Lupita because the expectation is so high.

    • Alina February 27, 2014 at 14:14 #

      I agree with everything you said.

  6. Tracy February 27, 2014 at 11:07 #

    I love the eyeshadow, but paired with the red lip it seems just a bit too much.

    That gorgeous colour looks stunning against her skin tone. Matchy shoes wouldn’t have been my first choice, but love the overall look.
    I’m so excited for her Oscars look, I hope it’ll be that breathtaking Elie Saab gown.

  8. Cookie February 27, 2014 at 11:14 #

    A girl that pretty doesn’t need that much makeup. I prefer her au naturel

  9. Christine February 27, 2014 at 11:38 #

    I’m getting tired of the shoes. This is ok

  10. Mm February 27, 2014 at 11:54 #

    For oscars i think she will wear white. Hair will have finger waves or some type of curls. For this look not loving the shoes

  11. amy February 27, 2014 at 11:59 #

    the dress is perfect but the whole thing is a little too matchy matchy. she still looks good though

  12. nthirank February 27, 2014 at 11:59 #

    This is perfection!! love the vibrant makeup and sexy blue!! just wish it was a different shoes!!

  13. Britta February 27, 2014 at 12:10 #

    To me – this is perfection! Love the matchy matchy – it works so amazing here!

  14. Ysatis February 27, 2014 at 12:12 #

    Beautiful from the ankle up. I’ll never understand the shoes situation.

  15. Larissa February 27, 2014 at 12:49 #

    She looks divine in every colour but I would love to see her with more exciting shoes.

  16. Lina February 27, 2014 at 13:10 #

    I usually don’t like match-matchy, but this time it only works in her favour!! One of my favourite Lupita looks!

  17. Rebecca Z February 27, 2014 at 14:20 #

    Spectacular dress. The makeup is a little heavy for my taste.

  18. Fer February 27, 2014 at 14:33 #

    I adore the fit of the dress, and the eyeshadow, I even liked the matchy matchy styling, but the color is so strong, that i really believe that a softer or more natural color of lipstick could have elevated this look, the red is trying to compete with the rest of the look it doesn’t look balanced, at least that’s my opinion. n.n

  19. Carol February 27, 2014 at 15:57 #

    This picture does not do her makeup any favours. I’ve seen other coverage and it’s more red than depicted.
    For the Oscars who knows… I’m prepared to be truly amazed.
    A true star is born.

  20. Prudence February 27, 2014 at 17:39 #

    Her makeup artist deserves a tripling of salary because he/she has not let her down once. Always spectacular in that area. The dress in that color is beyond gorge on her. I do not mind the matching matching this time but her stylist needs to get more creative. I am hopping for either gold or mustard yellow for the oscars.

  21. ysh87 February 27, 2014 at 18:17 #

    Ok for someone ho loved her copper/bronze phase, this is a disappointment. What made the copper looks work was her impeccable hair and make-up and the color of the dresses against her skin.

    Here,the lip color and eye shadow aren’t working together. Also I’m not liking the matchy shoes.

  22. Nat39 February 27, 2014 at 21:27 #

    The blue is way overdone here and then she threw a bold red lip on top of that – a bit more subtlety wouldn’t hurt, it’s unnecessarily loud and overly matchy-matchy. Thumbs down from me.

    Gold is my prediction for the Oscars.

  23. Jai February 27, 2014 at 22:20 #

    The dress is awful. The neckline makes absolutely no sense and the fit is just generally off. Plus the shoes are a big thumbs down – the stylist or her does appear to have an unfortunate fondness to matching the shoe colour to the dress.

  24. Elisabet February 27, 2014 at 22:39 #

    Like the dress, love the make-up! But I sure hope she won’t wear pointy-toe pumps to the Oscars.

  25. Stel February 27, 2014 at 23:25 #

    What a lady! I expect more her appearence at the Oscars than Jennifer Lawrence’s one!

  26. sharizal_samah February 28, 2014 at 02:49 #

    I hope she will wear somethin different maybe like tribal inspired from a local Kenyan designer for the Oscars…it would be more unique and special:)

  27. Anne Gallagher March 3, 2014 at 00:16 #

    The dress is amazing. As for the make-up — I like the eye colour, but the red lipstick has too much orange in it. The make-up artist should have chosen a cooler shade.
