Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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

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.

Lupita Nyong'o In Fausto Puglisi - 2014 Maui Film Festival

Lupita Nyong’o received the 2014 Maui Film Festival Rainmaker Award at the 2014 Maui Film Festival at Wailea on Saturday (June 7) in Wailea, Hawaii.

The actress wore a Fausto Puglisi Spring 2014 cerulean-blue silk cady A-line mini dress with palm-shaped crystal embroidery – a nod to her island surroundings, no doubt.

Styled with metallic-gold espadrilles, the look had further Midas touches via her gold Vita Fede ‘Eclipse’ earrings and gold nail polish.

Some of you have grown tired of the excessive use of blue eye makeup, so here she opted for a softer copper shade, with a glossy raspberry lip rounding out her look.

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?

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.

Lupita Nyong'o In Alexander McQueen - Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic 2014

Lupita Nyong’o joined Olivia Munn for the seventh annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in Liberty State Park on Saturday (May 31) in Jersey City.

The Oscar-winning actress wore an Alexander McQueen Spring 2014 black and white dress crafted from bonded laser-cut cotton-poplin, lightly structured in the body and cut for a close fit, with a pleated skirt creating an hourglass silhouette.

Maximizing the effect with heels and a matching mini ‘Heroine’ bag, the actress also styled her look with a black hat, a rare sighting of open-toe footwear, and diamond cluster earrings.

As someone who doesn’t like white shoes, I’m actually wondering if they would’ve improved the look, as I’m not a fan of her wedges choice.

The makeup, as always, is perfection. This is probably distracting me from addressing the hat. Not sure if it is working for me here.

What do you think?
