Lupita Nyong’o In Giambattista Valli Couture – Marie Claire Celebrates May Cover Stars

Lupita Nyong'o In Giambattista Valli - Marie Claire Celebrates May Cover Stars

After having a much deserved break following awards season, Lupita Nyong’o was back on the red carpet for the Marie Claire Celebrates May Cover Stars party on Tuesday (April 8) in West Hollywood, California joining Kate Mara.

Sporting yet another new ‘do, the ’12 Years a Slave’ actress donned a Giambattista Valli Fall 2013 Couture dress fine-tuned with a fit-and-flare silhouette and blue floral embroidery.

I love how the cut gives her a girlier flair and pretty poise.

This is also aided by her magenta lip colour, Louboutin pumps and Graziela Gems floral jewels.

    I am in love with her dress and her makeup but those shoes are just horrible!, she could have done so much better I don’t know why is so difficult for her stylist to be better in the shoe department.

    From the ankles up, she looks cute!

    The shoes are fug

      Those shoes are too heavy.

    I don’t like the hair, nor the shoes. But everything in between is gorgeous!

    • Vibes April 9, 2014 at 14:57 #

      Totally agree.

    Love the hair, dress and pretty pose. Such marvelous posture. Length and fit keep it from being “twee” for me. Metallic shoes are perfect, just wish this pair was as pretty as the rest of the look.

    The dress looks gorgeous on her! I really love it! And I think she has enough charm and charisma to pull of that hairstyle.
    The shoes are horrible though and almost ruin the whole look for me. Shame.

    This is a little off topic, but I was wondering if someone can explain to me how she can change her hair like this? I have straight hair myself and haven’t grown up around people with that hair type so I am completely mesmerized. Especially her awards season hair which was mostly (short/very short/shaved styles) was totally magical to me. I have no idea how they do that! Someone enlighten me, please! :)

    Outfit wise, I love the dress. It’s a bit different than what we’ve been used to seeing her in, but I’m into it. This is more flirty, and less modern-serious-fashion. The shoes are not as great as the dress though.

    So glad that she wasn’t forgotten after awards season ended :) We need the bit of sunshine that Lupita brings, in our lives.

      Plus, I don’t understand – does she have two covers? I kind of prefer the one on the poster, but she’s holding a different one in the group shot with Kate Mara and Elle Fanning.

        I don’t understand why my other comment wasn’t approved? ): Did I say something wrong?

        • Kat April 9, 2014 at 13:18 #

          Okay, maybe my computer is being weird and only showing some of the comments, because now the first on is back to awaiting moderation. I’m completely confused. Feel free to delete these last two messages. Sorry about the confusion, FC!

      To answer your question, she wears different hair pieces.

  10. beta April 9, 2014 at 12:42 #

    Shes a dresser, she rocks the hell of any outfit. Plus makeup is perfect

  11. AnnaP April 9, 2014 at 13:08 #

    Oh she’s so pretty and elegant. She looks like a doll in this gorgeous dress. Love the accessories too.

  12. dee April 9, 2014 at 13:53 #

    The hair is OK. The dress and makeup are lovely. Don’t care for the shoes.

    • Yeliz April 9, 2014 at 14:03 #

      Agreed on all points.

  13. Anne Gallagher April 9, 2014 at 14:49 #

    Lovely! As usual. She looks adorable in that dress.

  14. pinksugar April 9, 2014 at 14:59 #

    Love the flirty little dress and bold lip. Despise the hair and shoes.

  15. Rebecca Z April 9, 2014 at 15:48 #

    Love all of it but those heavy shoes. She is like a breath of fresh air!

  16. Alina April 9, 2014 at 16:05 #

    I think she looks beautiful. And how great is that cover? <3

  17. Amanda April 9, 2014 at 19:26 #

    She looks beautiful, the dress is cute and pretty and I love her lip colour. She looks like she is having a lot of fun wearing this. Would only like to have seen different shoes – she has such nice legs, would like to see her wear some more flirty shoes.
