Lupita Nyong’o In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘Gringo’ LA Premiere

It’s been a busy weekend for Lupita Nyong’o with the Oscars and Vanity Fair Party, but the actress is not in the mood to slow down as she attended the ‘Gringo’ LA premiere last night (March 6) to support her ‘Queen of Katwe’ co-star David Oyelowo.

The actress wore a Dolce & Gabbana lace up corset dress which continues to be an iconic, and timeless look for the Italian designers, who have presented versions of this dress in the 90s, 00s and again for 2018.

I love how this look is brimming with sophisticated seductiveness. There is really no style that Lupita can’t conquer.

Some might be disappointed by the lack of colour here, but my feeling is that Lupita wanted to go for something striking in style, but nothing that would overshadow the stars of the film.

Lupita Nyong’o In Armani Privé – 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Lupita Nyong’o also left the Academy Awards to celebrate at the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscars party in Los Angeles on Sunday (March 4).

At the ceremony, the ‘Black Panther’ star wore a gilded Atelier Versace gown, which she traded for a Armani Prive look for the party.

The drape on this dress really is beautiful–it looks like it simply drips into a puddle on the floor, and the beadwork is stunning.

Major accolades also go to Lupita’s beauty team, who are always on point and actually completely changed up her makeup between the events. Her rose gold lips and eyeshadow here are fitting for the queen she is.

Lupita Nyong’o In Atelier Versace – 2018 Oscars

Lupita Nyong’o made an appearance at the 2018 Oscars on Sunday (March 4) in Hollywood, California.

The ‘Black Panther’ actress offered up a shimmery embellished goddess moment this evening, with this Atelier Versace embellished gown.

The silhouette was iconic Versace, with the one-shoulder, corseted bodice and the side slit—although I appreciated her withholding the temptation for a leg jut.

Hair jewels complemented the dazzling liquid-metallic, Oscar golden look.

Lupita Nyong’o In Ronald van der Kemp Couture – 2018 Essence Black Women In Hollywood Oscars Luncheon

Lupita Nyong’o attended the Essence 11th Annual Black Women In Hollywood Awards Gala on Thursday (March 1) in Beverly Hills, California.

The ‘Black Panther’ actress wore a Ronald van der Kemp Fall 2017 Couture dress made up of so many intriguing textural elements.

Usually with this much going on things can feel overcooked. But the jacquard, snakeskin, stripes and sheer trim all work together in perfect harmony, thanks to the edgy design and the confidence of the wearer.

Lupita Nyong’o In Kevin Mayes & Danai Gurira In The Row – ‘Black Panther’ Johannesburg Premiere

As the ‘Black Panther’ promo tour marched along, Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira were both in attendance at the Johannesburg premiere on Friday (February 16)—both in looks that vibrantly reflected the heritage of their South Africa setting.

Lupita Nyong’o: The fiery hue of this Kevin Mayes design, not to mention the gold embroidered cutouts, were so striking, as Lupita returned to the bold colours we know and love. More allure came by virtue of the hip-high dual front slits—more visible in movement—an intriguing counterpoint to the sweeping nature of the skirt.

Danai Gurira: The statement piece of this loose and languid navy gown was the bold, textural neck piece as well as her cuffs that added such a relevant flourish to the simple halter design.

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.
