Lupita Nyong’o In Chanel Couture – Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Lupita Nyong'o In Chanel Couture - Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Glamour hosted their annual 2014 Women Of The Year Awards held at Carnegie Hall on Monday (November 10) in New York City, inviting their woman of the year and current cover girl, Lupita Nyong’o.

Of course she served up a high-fashion look, donning an off-white Chanel Fall 2014 Couture neoprene dress embroidered with gold, red and coral beads, paired with matching cycling shorts.

I love how considered the styling is, with gold Kurt Geiger ‘Anja’ pumps, shimmering gold eye makeup and a rouge lip to complement the beaded detailing.

It’s not easy to pull off this style of look; it takes a great deal of confidence and poise, which Lupita has in spades.

I’m already looking forward to her next look.

Lupita Nyong’o In Bally – Bally London Flagship Store Opening

Lupita Nyong’o In Bally - Bally London Flagship Store Opening

Lupita Nyong’o co-hosted the grand opening of Bally’s first London flagship store with a cocktail party on Wednesday (October 22) with Luke Evans.

After her all-black affair I was delighted to see her bring colour back to the red carpet.

The Oscar winner wore a Bally Spring 2015 look, working a mix of colours ranging from plum and saffron-yellow to green and ballet-pink.

I love how the autumnal hues blend effortlessly with the sunnier feminine pink accents; the colours just pop against her gorgeous radiant skin.

I’m less enthused about the hairstyle, but that glossy Bordeaux lip makes up for that.

Which look do you prefer: the Fitriani LBD or this colourful Bally look?

Lupita Nyong’o In Fitriani – Sindika Dokolo Art Foundation Dinner

Lupita Nyong'o In Fitriani - Sindika Dokolo Art Foundation Dinner

Lupita Nyong’o made a long-awaited return to the red carpet for the Sindika Dokolo Art Foundation dinner held at the Café Royal on Saturday (October 18) in London, England.

The gorgeous actress, who is known for her love of colour and print, took a left turn down an all-black alley, wearing a Fitriani Spring 2015 LBD.

But of course it wasn’t any plain LBD; this creation was rendered with a beautiful ruffled layered bodice, nipped-in waist and voluminous skirt.

Black Paul Andrew pumps, a ladylike Givenchy bag and a sweet bejewelled Henri Bendel ‘Socialite’ headwrap rounded out her look.

The only thing that would’ve perfected this look in my eyes would’ve been a glorious rich lip colour.

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.

Who Wore Altuzarra Better…Lupita Nyong’o or Toni Collette?

Who Wore Altuzarra Better Lupita Nyong'o or Toni Collette

During Lupita Nyong’o’s epic awards season run, the actress wore an Altuzarra ‘Marlene’ Pre-Fall 2014 pale-blue frock styled with a Dior Fine Jewelry ‘Pre Catelan’ yellow-gold, diamond and chalcedony ring and matching earrings, plus a divine pair of Bruno Magli lilac patent-leather ‘Olabisi’ pumps.

One of the rare non-bold-coloured non-printed pieces we saw from her during this time.

Toni Collette wore the same dress in black while attending ‘The Realistic Joneses’ opening night after-party, which she styled with a plexiglass clutch and a statement necklace.

Preferring both the styling and the colour, Lupita wins for me.
