Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Lupita Awards Season 2014

Lupita Nyong’o has been a breath of fresh air since she hit the red carpet. Her awards-season run was as expected: spectacular.

We’ve never seen so much colour from one celebrity (excpepct perhaps Elizabeth Banks), and or such a variety of hairstyles from such a short hair cut.

Trying to narrow down my favourite look is like asking a mother ‘who is your favourite child?’

My top four are Calvin Klein at the Critics’ Choice Awards, Gucci at the SAG Awards, Dior Couture at the BAFTAs and Ralph Lauren at the Globes.

Are you having a hard time narrowing your favourite to just one?

Miu Miu FROW

A host of stars, including many faces of the brand, took to the front row of Miu Miu’s Fall 2014 show in Paris, France this morning (March 5) during Paris Fashion Week.

Rihanna: After looking chic in Chanel yesterday, she looked a hot mess today at Miu Miu. Over-styled and overworked in garish colours, nothing from the knees up is appealing to me. She wore a Prada red nappa leather and black shearling overcoat, paired with a tobacco and yellow intarsia-knit cashmere sweater and purple silk scarf, all from the Prada Fall 2014 collection.

Lea Seydoux: The French beauty cleanses my eyes from Rihanna’s car-crash Couture, wearing a pretty pastel look featuring a petal-pink printed silk blouse and ‘Ciré’ vinyl pencil skirt with Jimmy Choo bronze heels. While the look reads spring, it is so very pretty and styled effortlessly that I just can’t help but fall in love with it.

Lupita Nyong'o In Miu Miu - Vanity Fair Oscar Party 2014

Lupita Nyong’o arrived at the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar party on Sunday (March 2) in West Hollywood, California with her Oscar statue.

Wearing her second Miuccia Prada frock of the night, the Oscar-winner wore a Miu Miu seafoam green iridescent silk belted gown enhanced with green beaded fringe along the neckline.

Keeping the same headband from the main event, she styled her sassier party frock with matching Prada silk peep-toe sandals.

I loved the Prada fairytale gown which capped a fairytale ending for the talented actress, and this party frock was perfectly appropriate for this event too.

Lupita Nyong’o In Prada - Oscars 2014

Lupita Nyong’o was the one we were all waiting to take the red carpet at the 2014 Oscars held at the Hollywood & Highland Center on Sunday (March 2) in Hollywood, California.

As predicted, the face of Miu Miu wore Prada, gliding down the red carpet wearing a custom light-blue silk georgette soleil pleated gown with a deep V-neck top and low cut sides.

The skirt was enriched with delicate crystal beading on the edges of the pleats to add a sparkle as she posed for the camera.

She completed her look with Fred Leighton jewels, which included an ear cuff, satin Prada platform sandals, and a matching Prada raso clutch with baguette crystal detail, framed in gold – which will look so great alongside that Oscar I hope she wins.

Miucca did her proud. This is a stunning gown. Do you agree?

Lupita Nyong'o In Jonathan Cohen - GREY GOOSE Presents 12 Years A Slave Dinner

Luptia Nyong’o rounded off her busy awards season party schedule at the Grey Goose ’12 Years a Slave Dinner’ last night (March 1) at Sunset Tower in West Hollywood, California.

In her final outing before the all-important Oscars, Lupita chose to wear a gloriously colourful Jonathan Cohen Fall 2014 dress. The red, blue-and-white abstract shattered mirror and lipstick print long-sleeve number was simple in cut but impactful thanks to Luptia’s striking figure.

To finish, the best supporting actress nominee chose a sparkling blue Edie Parker clutch, complementary bright red pumps and Dana Rebecca Designs jewellery for a delightfully polished, but possibly not her strongest, look.

Lupita Nyong'o In Stella McCartney - Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

As a best supporting actress nominee, Lupita Nyong’o was of course holding court at the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California today (March 1).

The ’12 Years a Slave’ star has demonstrated that she’s not afraid to experiment with her impeccable style, so I’m always excited to see what she will bring to the red carpet.

Today, she yet again switched it up, utilizing the more laid-back event to debut a Stella McCartney Spring 2014 long-sleeve playsuit.

She paired the textured-print design with the sparkle of a gem-embellished Devi Kroell box clutch and Casadei grey suede pumps with cream trim and the signature ‘Blade’ heel, which may have not been my first choice here.

Capitalizing on the natural, desert tones of her ensemble, she finished the look with metallic, golden eye shadow and a terracotta red lip.

A new, fun outing from Lupita, although I found it be missing that truly memorable edge. Do you agree?
