Lupita Nyong’o In Stella McCartney – Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Lupita Nyong'o In Stella McCartney - Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

As a best supporting actress nominee, Lupita Nyong’o was of course holding court at the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California today (March 1).

The ’12 Years a Slave’ star has demonstrated that she’s not afraid to experiment with her impeccable style, so I’m always excited to see what she will bring to the red carpet.

Today, she yet again switched it up, utilizing the more laid-back event to debut a Stella McCartney Spring 2014 long-sleeve playsuit.

She paired the textured-print design with the sparkle of a gem-embellished Devi Kroell box clutch and Casadei grey suede pumps with cream trim and the signature ‘Blade’ heel, which may have not been my first choice here.

Capitalizing on the natural, desert tones of her ensemble, she finished the look with metallic, golden eye shadow and a terracotta red lip.

A new, fun outing from Lupita, although I found it be missing that truly memorable edge. Do you agree?

    I agree, it’s not really a memorable look, but I quite like this, especially her styling. And her shoe choice is also good this time.

      I agree.

    Her style isn’t as great as it was earlier in the season. Some off choices lately, but the one constant is that I hate her shoes. Always. It’s baffling.

    Beautiful in this shade of gold with her coloring. the event is smaller than others, and she looks fresh, and she won!

    I like this look which surprises me because usually my taste is quite conservative. Her shoes are not too bad. She has lovely legs and she should show them more often.

    She looks tired, I am sure she is knackered.
    Come on Lulu! Tomorrow is the big day, you can do it girl!

      Bingo, I think you are right, she looks exhausted. Hope she gets some rest and renews her sparkle. I like the look.

    Cool texture, not excited about the shorts part.

    That was unexpected. I guess a welcome change. Bright colors and plain fabrics will work for a couple of times, but it would not forever.

    I guess that it has open a door of possibilities for tomorrow, and I guess the result will be anybody’s guess.

    It’s the Spirit Awards so the dress code is so much less informal. I think she looks fantastic. Once again she’s wearing a color that looks beautiful on her skin. I also love the texture.

    I know her shoes are a bit off sometimes, but she always tries to experiment instead of using the simple nude or black pump all the time. So in comparison to a lot of other actresses, I don’t get the big issue about her shoes in every outing.
