Lupita Nyong’o In Elie Saab Couture – 2018 BAFTAs

I was most looking forward to seeing Lupita Nyong’o at the 2018 BAFTAs in London this evening (February 18), following her hot streak from her ‘Black Panther’ promo tour, and she didn’t let me down.

Many of you are bored with the standard Elie Saab Couture gown decked out in feathers and sequins, so this ‘Game of Thrones-esqe’ medieval gown should come as a refreshing change.

I had always pictured this look for Gal Gadot, as the look screams ‘warrior queen’, but the tougher side to the classic Elie Saab woman translates beautiful on Lupita, as no one does regal elegance quite like she does.

    Not sure if this will get BDOTY for me in the end, but it’s up there with the ones I will remember at the end of the year.

    Lupita is certainly one of the most overrated celebrities when it comes to fashion.

      It’s what I’ve been saying for a long time. Not everything can possibly look good on everybody.

      and how exactly is she overrrated?

      • SilentVisitor February 19, 2018 at 14:01 #

        I would love to have the answer to that question but never mind.

    • Meme February 19, 2018 at 15:16 #

      I agree. I don’t like everything she wears and other actresses look just as goo or better than she does.

    Different. I like.
    I wish there was less fabric at the bottom but she pulls it off.

    Well, as of ‘Black Panther’, Lupita is a warrior queen too. 🙂

    Absolutely in love with this! She looks radiant and taller than ever.

    The earrings are too much here. I like the dress a lot but I don’t think this is the best dress for Lupita. Even with that, this is one of my favorite looks of the night.

    Better on her than on the runway–she looks like a queen.

  7. Leandra February 18, 2018 at 23:23 #

    No. Unfortunately, she is too short for this dress. She looks like a little girl playing in her mother’s wardrobe.
    Cutting the dress shorter or hemming it appropriately for her height wouldn’t have helped either as the dress needs a lengthy skirt for the expected effect.

      +1. I was going to say the same thing…this gown should be worn by someone taller because it’s really swallowing little Lupita up. I’m not buying what she’s selling unfortunately…

    Glorious.

    Wow this looks like it was made specifically for her, speechless!

    I feel this is too heavy for her frame. She kind of gets lost in it all.
    I also find the earrings to be too much with such a heavy weighted look.
    I love the concept of this but its not working.

    Best dressed though this isn’t the best pic of this gown

    • AnnieOh February 18, 2018 at 22:58 #

      agree 100%

  12. Nat39 February 18, 2018 at 22:49 #

    Stunning gown, loving the sharp lines, and her hair/makeup and earrings are gorgeous! That being said, I do think the gown would’ve worked better on someone more statuesque.

    • brat February 18, 2018 at 22:58 #

      perhaps

    This is probably my favorite of the night.
