Lupita Nyong’o In Suno – 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

Lupita Nyong'o In Suno - 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

Lupita Nyong’o attended the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards held at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center on Monday (June 2) in New York City.

One thing I love about the actress is that she doesn’t appear to be resting on her fashion laurels or playing it safe, proving that her award season run was no fluke.

Here she returns to her first loves, pattern-play and mixing colours, wearing a striped Suno Fall 2014 look featuring a cropped top with a plunging neckline pair with chic cropped trousers.

As always, her makeup is at the forefront of every look, which is why Lancôme snapped her up as their ambassador. Here you can’t miss her bold blue eyes, while she opted for a neutral glossy lip on this occasion.

Sophia Webster ‘Coco’ red satin pumps and a pair of gold earrings accessorized her look, with her natural locks straightened and styled into a directional quiffed style.

You can buy Lupita’s Sophia Webster Coco Satin Pumps from Bergdorf Goodman.

    I think she’s overexposed. Her fashion choices are not good anymore. Time to have some rest Lupita.

    This is very bold, but she pulls it off.

    I can’t say I’m a big fan of her hair, though. I wish her hairstylist would understand that she looks stunning with very short hair – no fuss, just her beauty shinning through.

    The only thing I like is the makeup but everything else though….

  4. Yeliz June 3, 2014 at 10:34 #

    This is a no for me. I think the trousers look awkward.

  5. towanda June 3, 2014 at 10:51 #

    nothing works for me. i don’t like makeup too

  6. Christine June 3, 2014 at 10:56 #

    This is not a good look. The pants looks a bit awkward and not feeling the shoes

  7. Iva June 3, 2014 at 10:57 #

    A big NO.

  8. Louise June 3, 2014 at 10:58 #

    Absolutely nothing works for me… the make up is too much, head to toe she looks like a crazy clown… Jesus. Bring Lupita

    For now her award season run WAS A Fluke.

  9. Angela R. June 3, 2014 at 11:04 #

    NO. Lupita is losing her touch or maybe is her stylist who does not know what else to do for bringing her back on track? The ensamble has a horrible cut, the waist seems to be too high and the breast too low… Nop, it does not work for me.

    I ADORE this look, su unique, so bold without being tacky, she’s very beautiful.
    ps. I really apprecciate this blog (FC and all her team) but I have to say that sometimes the comments of the users seem so provincial. Open up your mind girls.

    • CreoleLady June 3, 2014 at 14:55 #

      Not sure which “girls” you are referring to but this woman does not like anything about this get-up. I’m surprised you condescended to share your opinions with so provincial an audience

  11. brat June 3, 2014 at 11:27 #

    WTF! Her stylist is mad at her?

    • manja June 3, 2014 at 11:43 #

      +1 she has been so dissapointing to me lately,dont like any of her choices

  12. Larissa June 3, 2014 at 11:51 #

    Since the MET gala I feel like she’s trying too hard. She doesn’t need this awkward and unflattering stuff to look original, for me she looks her best wearing minimalistic and colorful gowns.

  13. Anna June 3, 2014 at 12:23 #

    Like her MET gala look another epic fail!

  14. Evelyn June 3, 2014 at 12:31 #

    Lupita has lost her mojo, her latest 3 looks have been horrifying and I’m shocked that our dear guru here keep saying her make up is on point. Really? Her make up color combo is very drag queen, chola like and very 1980, time to freshen up and stop playing lil girl make up

  15. Valissa June 3, 2014 at 12:32 #

    Another disappointment for Lupita. It looks like she believed her own hype and is now trying to hard. She needs to go back to basics and stop over thinking!

  16. Chanel June 3, 2014 at 12:37 #

    This is a resounding no. It looks..whacked.

  17. Charlotte June 3, 2014 at 13:08 #

    The pants and the top are so unflaterring, the cut are so bad !
    Her hairstyle and her make up are not good either.

  18. dee June 3, 2014 at 13:16 #

    I only like her hair.

    and Respect and Fashion

  21. Anissa June 3, 2014 at 15:06 #

    I like the fun vibe she’s going for, but I don’t think the fit of this is really flattering on her. It’s fine to play around with fashion, but at least it should be flattering even if out of the box.

  22. pinksugar June 3, 2014 at 15:11 #

    This is right up there with her Met Gala monstrosity for me. Please don’t loose your fashion mojo Lupita!

  23. kc June 3, 2014 at 15:12 #

    She is going from bad to worse in style choices lately. Wth happened?

  24. Pedro June 3, 2014 at 15:43 #

    I love her hair and make up but everything else looks terrible!

    If the pants were skinny ankle length or trousers, this outfit would be successful for me. I’d prefer something other than pointy toe pumps, as well.

  26. Joy June 3, 2014 at 17:32 #

    IMO, this is NO. Lupita’s makeup looks beautiful, and I love the colorful print on her. But these shorts/culottes are very very bad. This would have been so great if they were slim cigarette pants. I do really like the top length and cut, but the shorts are a look killer for sure. Gotta give it up to Lupita for not being a shrinking violet, and to keep taking chances.

  27. Jai June 3, 2014 at 20:04 #

    Omg, that is awful. They have to be the most unflattering and horrendous pair of pants I’ve seen in a long time. Combined with a matching top?! No words for how bad this is.

  28. Renata June 3, 2014 at 20:38 #

    Talk about disappointment. What happened to her? I dislike everything about this, even the makeup. Those pants are atrocious.

  29. adrian June 3, 2014 at 21:41 #

    love the nod to heritage. love that’s it’s bold and off the tried and true mark. not sure it’s the right event. not sure it’s the right fit (particularly the pants).

  30. Leo June 4, 2014 at 05:39 #

    “Her natural locks straightened and styled into a directional quiffed style.”

    It’s pretty obvious that this some kind of hair piece attached to her Afro and it’s not a good look. It’s her head and she can do what she wants to, but Lupita looks good with her natural short cut. Sometimes when they add to enhance, they end up subtracting from one’s beauty.

  31. Nat39 June 4, 2014 at 19:08 #

    Sorry, Lupita, but this is bordering on clownish.
