Which Was Your Favourite Lupita Nyong’o 2014 Awards Season Look?

Lupita Awards Season 2014

Lupita Nyong’o has been a breath of fresh air since she hit the red carpet. Her awards-season run was as expected: spectacular.

We’ve never seen so much colour from one celebrity (excpepct perhaps Elizabeth Banks), and or such a variety of hairstyles from such a short hair cut.

Trying to narrow down my favourite look is like asking a mother ‘who is your favourite child?’

My top four are Calvin Klein at the Critics’ Choice Awards, Gucci at the SAG Awards, Dior Couture at the BAFTAs and Ralph Lauren at the Globes.

Are you having a hard time narrowing your favourite to just one?

    WOW – she had an amazing run! It’s impossible to choose from her looks at the Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice, SAGs, BAFTAs and Oscars. They are all BDOTY moments for me.

    P.S.: Kinda surprised to see the heart on the Christian Dior outfit. I thought you didn’t like it too much, FC.

      The heart was a mistake as I was using an old template.

      With regards to the Dior, I said it was too deja vu, not that I didn’t like it.

    My favorite is when she wore Gucci at the SAGs. I love everything from the head to toe. Also, that’s blue is my favorite color she worn.

    I choose red Ralph Lauren (Globes). It was a dramatic and impactful showstopper that set the stage for her impressive season run. That being said, I thought her sportier and sexier white Calvin Klein at the Critics’ Choice Awards worked most amazingly well for her, it highlighted her toned frame to perfection. These are my top 2 fave looks from her, followed by Gucci (SAG) – 3rd.

    My least fave was easily Gyvenchy (NAACP image awards). It was her most unflattering choice both in colour and cut, and the hairstyle just made it worse.

    My fave was Gucci at SAG. She looked radiant! With the matching makeup, she still managed to make it work. No one else can pull off the colour like she did. RL at Golden Globe comes next but that was a bit too Gwyneth.

    Definitely the Gucci, which I still think she should have worn to the Oscars.

    1. Gucci – SAG Awards
    2. Ralph Lauren – Golden Globe Awards
    3. Prada – Oscars

    Would have preferred seeing the 2014 Producers Awards and the 39th LA Film Critics’ Awards looks over the Oscars’ nominee luncheon. Tough to choose; four Lupita looks, including two here, are on my BDOTY list.

    Can’t decide between the Critics’ Choice and the SAGs. The former had my jaw drop when I first saw it, but I think the latter will be the more memorable look in the long run.

    Oh my god, I just love this variety!!! To see it all put here together, she was just AMAZING! So I should probably choose the Gucci, because it was just beyond putting in words awesome. But my favorite was the Calvin Klein. Lupita moved me in that dress. The crisp white against her beautiful skin, was just my absolute favorite. Nobody will EVER wear a white dress as great as this. Oh, and CK is so subtle she just makes it stunning. I could pick at least half of these choices to be BDOTY. I will DEFINITELY be remembering Lupita in December.

    So hard to choose between the Bafta’s and the Oscars. In the end I voted for the green Dior dress she wore to the Bafta’s. The green and the gold went so well together.

  11. EmmaWoodhouse March 7, 2014 at 12:57 #

    What fabulousness! Though I loved her BAFTA’s and Golden Globes look, her turquoise Gucci was the clear winner for me.

  12. dee March 7, 2014 at 13:17 #

    Definitely the SAG awards were she wore the Gucci gown. I wasn’t blown away with her other looks except for the Baftas.

  13. Kate March 7, 2014 at 15:06 #

    I think the color of the Gucci gown was amazing, but (unpopular opinion) I thought the embellishments looked tacky…like plastic flowers from a craft store.

    The Oscars look was so unexpected and that added to the impact of the dress for me. It was a regal princess moment and I don’t think anyone else could’ve pulled it off. That’s my pick, followed by the Calvin Klein.

    The Ralph Lauren is any choice for me. I feel like every actress (if they’re lucky) has one dress that defines their red carpet presence and this gown was just that for Lupita. The bold color, the cape, her confidence-the perfect remedy to be unforgettable.

  15. Carrie March 7, 2014 at 15:54 #

    Great idea for a post, FC! And what a treat for the eyes!

    For me, it’s a tie between the red Ralph Lauren and the turquoise Gucci.

  16. anjos March 7, 2014 at 16:55 #

    Personal favorites: Ralph Lauren at the Globes, Givenchy at NAACP Image Awards and Dior Couture at BAFTAs. Even though I was in love with some more ‘casual’ outfits she had at different events too, but those are not in the poll.

    I’m voting for Givenchy look though ’cause that color is gorgeous on her and the hair was very creative, too.

    Even though the most memorable look might just be her glorious Gucci gown at the SAGs, my personal favourite was the Calvin Klein she wore to the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. There she nailed it fully and her confident personality shone through. Crisp and flawless. My third favourite is the Dior at BAFTAs. That green is electrifying. She looked statuesque.

  18. Milla B. March 7, 2014 at 17:56 #

    Without a doubt, Gucci at the SAG Awards.

  19. Elaine2 March 9, 2014 at 01:43 #

    Hated the Prada dress for the Oscars. She doesn’t have the chest to support it and it was distracting.

  20. Dan oliver March 9, 2014 at 11:52 #

    1. Gucci
    2. Calvin Klein
    3. Prada
    She has had an amazing run would love to see one of these polls for Amy Adams and Cate Blanchett
