Who Wore Ralph Lauren Better…Lupita Nyong’o or Nong Poy

Who Wore Ralph Lauren Better Lupita Nyong'o or Nong Poy

Lupita Nyong’o blew us all away during awards season, never more so than when she donned a red caped Ralph Lauren gown to the Golden Globe Awards.

I was very surprised to see it worn again just two months later by Nong Poy to the Hong Kong Film Awards

The Thai actress wore it equally well, keeping the styling to a minimum and adding a red lip.

Both women look outstanding; I should toss a coin as it is impossible to choose, but I will go for Lupita on this occasion as this was such a great moment which will go down in fashion history as one of her best red carpet looks.

    Honestly, I think it would be wrong to make a call between these two. The styling is essentially exactly the same. Nong Poy looks washed out in the photo but can you really make that judgement when the flash photography and the unflattering background in her photo renders even the colour of her dress worlds apart from Lupita’s identical one?

    Other than race, I would say there is no difference.

    I don’t like Lupita, I find her quite overrated, but I do find that she wore this dress the best of these two. I find Nong Poy to vanish in the dress and the color makes her look even more pale and it just isn’t flattering.

    Sorry for Lupita (it was her moment and blah, blah…) but Nong looks way much better.

    Sorry but there is no contest. Lupita all the way! Months later I still get goosebumps looking at her.

    I think that lupita-nyongo wore the gown best! the difference one look like model and the other look like a queen! Personally I think they both look beautiful.

    Both women are beautiful in the dress. But the fit is just a smidge better on Lupita, and the color is gorgeous against her skin. Plus, like Nat39 said, Lupita owned that dress, and it should’ve been retired after she wore it.

    The gown should’ve retired after Lupita had worn it. It will always be her moment.

      As for subtle differences – the silhouette on Lupita was made more flattering by nipping it in at the waist, and I also like the addition of gold jewellery (Nong’s hands are too bare). Lupita owned that look.

        I agree with both of your comments.
