Lupita Nyong’o In Calvin Klein Collection – 2014 Maui Film Festival

Lupita Nyong'o In Calvin Klein - 2014 Maui Film Festival

Lupita Nyong’o attended the opening night reception for the 2014 Maui Film Festival held at Capische Restaurant in Hotel Wailea on Wednesday (June 4) in Wailea, Hawaii.

While most opt for a more laidback look for this festival, the actress took the contemporary approach; mastering the colour-block trend with aplomb once again, she donned a sleek sleeveless Calvin Klein tri-colour dress.

The shades of aqua-blue were the focus here, with her shoes, clutch and nails matching her dress.

You weren’t at all as enamoured by her Suno CFDA Fashion Awards look as I was, so how does this fare?

Too matchy matchy, or a return to form?

    Lupita’s fabulous. She’s drop dead gorgeous

  5. towanda June 6, 2014 at 08:26 #

    perfect. she looks gorgeous from h2t

    When she doesn’t wear crazy get ups and keeps her hair simple she is so striking and beautiful.

    These pics do not do her justice! The head on shots are much better. The color and accessories are divine. She was no one trick pony!

    The dress is way too long, right below the knee would’ve been ideal. She hasn’t wowed me in a long time now. I’m starting to wonder.

    Now, this is more like it, j’adore, the colors, everything is working perfectly. Her CFDA look came across as comical.

  10. dee June 5, 2014 at 17:45 #

    She looks gorgeous.

  11. Marybeth June 5, 2014 at 17:30 #

    I love it h2t.

    If the dress were solid blue, it would indeed be too matchy-matchy. As it is, the use of blue for nails and accessories gives the look a restrained elegance. (likewise the subtle make-up and simple hair.)

    This is more like it!!She usually looks divine with simple and figure-hugging dresses and this is no exception. This colour is dreamy on her.She’s back at her best!

  13. Lila June 5, 2014 at 17:03 #

    The colours against her skin look amazing.

    I’m wondering, does this woman do something apart from going to events every two days?

    • great June 5, 2014 at 20:07 #

      whatever she wants to share with us is appreciated, but for the rest it is none of our business.
      also: I think its very important that she is visible. we don’t very often see oscar-winners who psysically looks like her. it’s important for all. and she is so beautifull from every angle, so a treat every time I see her

      Lupita won an Oscar this year and is set to star in star wars…I’m pretty sure her fame is well deserved. Now if you can tell me what Blake Lively, Camilla Belle, Chrissy Tegan and Alexa Chung do apart from attending random events then I’ll be grateful

      • Prudence June 6, 2014 at 05:25 #

        well said. and lets throw in Kate Bosworth, I do not think she has been in a movie since Superman was an epic fail and yet no one has ever complained about her constant presence everywhere but at a premiere for her movie.

        • Badaboum June 6, 2014 at 16:29 #

          amen to that!

      • great June 7, 2014 at 00:17 #

        they are all being their beautifull selfs. very important and I appriciate that. a lot!

      • great June 7, 2014 at 00:24 #

        just like we are all being our beautifull selfs.

      I honestly don’t get what you’re saying, she’s an actress at a FILM festival. if she isn’t supposed to be there, who is? In addition to that, Lupita has been the “it girl of the moment” since the awards season, a bit like J.Lawrence last year. Therefore she probably gets invited to tons of events like most celebs.

  14. Christine June 5, 2014 at 16:09 #

    She looks nice. Love the colors

  15. Rebecca Z June 5, 2014 at 15:52 #

    There are more flattering pix of her in this dress but they don’t show the dramatic burnt orange on the back as well. It is a great dress and the length works when you see it head on and she is standing straight. It’s a winner.

  16. Carrie June 5, 2014 at 15:48 #

    That color in Maui? Perfect.

  17. Yeliz June 5, 2014 at 15:46 #

    I would say return to form since she looks gorgeous from h2t.

  18. Isabella June 5, 2014 at 15:43 #

    Not liking the length of the dress, she looks shorter

  19. KR June 5, 2014 at 15:13 #

    Love the shoes. I haven’t been crazy about quite a few of her shoe choices, but these I am absolutely in love with!

  20. gabis June 5, 2014 at 15:09 #

    This is a lot better. The accessories are matchy-matchy indeed which I’m not quite crazy about but at least she gave that blue eyeshadow some rest. Very lovely look.

    • Agathe June 6, 2014 at 13:55 #

      I totally agree about the eyeshadow! This is more like it.

  21. Tracy June 5, 2014 at 15:09 #

    Much better. Would’ve loved a red lip too.

  22. sophie June 5, 2014 at 15:09 #

    J’Adore head to toe.

    BDOTW for me.

  23. magan June 5, 2014 at 14:57 #

    I like the dress, if shorter would be ideal.

  24. kane June 5, 2014 at 14:54 #

    Totally love how the shoes and toe nails match the dress, but would have picked a different colour for the clutch.

  25. Alina June 5, 2014 at 14:47 #

    Love this, especially the simple hair and makeup.

  26. Iva June 5, 2014 at 14:33 #

    Major improvement here.
    I would only like if the dress was a bit shorter.

  27. Princess Chi Chi June 5, 2014 at 14:31 #

    LOVE the dress so much and kinda like the clutch. However those shoes are bothering me a little. Major improvement from the CFDAs though!
