Lupita Nyong’o In Oscar de la Renta – 100th Annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Lupita Nyong'o In Oscar de la Renta - 100th Annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner

Lupita Nyong’o attended the 100th Annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton on Saturday (May 3) in Washington, DC.

I hate to say it, but I’m not crazy about this Oscar de la Renta Fall 2014 gown at all.

It had great potential to be another Lupita fashion homerun, but sadly this look is making her appear wider than she is.

I don’t think it’s the fault of the tulle black-and-white polka dot peplum, but rather the black silk faille skirt. It needed to be narrower, more streamlined and shorter as it is bunching up on the floor.

I’m surprised at how bad the skirt is tailored.

Look back to her Dior Couture BAFTAs gown where she looked 6ft tall, then come back to this. This gown has the opposite, shortening effect.

A complementary Oscar de la Renta ‘Goa’ clutch, Fred Leighton jewels and a hot-pink lip completed her look.

    It’s just this picture. On Other pictures she does not appear wide at all! Just really beautiful!

    Yeah, not liking this at all. Including the makeup.

    I love polka dots, for me this is another amazing look from Lupita!

    Just too many elements that scream ‘prom’ here…

    Maybe because I’ve come to expect something so special from her that this is just a little underwhelming. It’s not per se just, meh, it doesn’t quite come together. Fingers crossed for the Met Gala tomorrow.

    I agree that the gown could have been hemmed a little more, but other than that, I love the polka dots, and think that she looks adorable.

    I think she looks absolutely perfect from head to toe.
