Lupita Nyong’o In Bibhu Mohapatra – People and Time Magazine White House Correspondents Cocktail Party

Lupita Nyong'o In Bibhu Mohapatra - People and Time Magazine White House Correspondents Cocktail PartyLupita Nyong’o returned to the red carpet on Friday (May 2) for the People and Time Magazine’s White House Correspondents’ Association cocktail party at the Astor Terrace of the St. Regis Hotel in Washington D.C.

The actress—and People Magazine’s World’s Most Beautiful woman—shone as brightly as always in an ivory Bibhu Mohapatra Fall 2014 full-skirted, cocktail frock, festooned with a bar code-like pattern of metallic gold and silver embellishment.

Wrapped into a structured V at the waist, the dress didn’t suffer without the black belt seen on the runway. In fact, I didn’t miss it at all.

The styling also worked well here, what with the complementary ivory Swarovski clutch, along with glittering silver Christian Louboutin pumps and the restrained sparkle of Fred Leighton jewels.

I cannot wait to see what she wears tonight at the 100th annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner.

    It’s OK without the belt but I don’t like the styling. I wish she opted for shoes and clutch in color.

    Beautiful. She still has ‘it’.

    Ankles-up, ankles up. She wears it better than the model.

    I absolutely love this look. The runway version pales in comparison. The dress is darling, styled to perfection and she looks radiant.

    I really love this dress, i feel like she has been slipping lately but this is wonderful. Again the shoes let me down but im very excited to she what she wears to the WHC Dinner and Met.

    She looks amazing in white but this whole look is ugly, I like nothing but her face

    I love this dress on her but I’m sorry she lost the belt. I think a black belt with shoes match would have made the look much more interesting…

    Pretty dress but, like most of her looks, the shoes and clutch really let it down!
    I think her stylists continuesly fails to pick the right accessories to go with her dresses/gowns.
