Lupita Nyong’o In Stella McCartney – Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

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?

Lupita Nyong’o In Michael Kors – Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party

Lupita Nyong’o In Michael Kors - Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party

Lupita Nyong’o continued her red carpet success last night (February 28) at the 7th Annual Women in Film Pre-Oscar cocktail party held at Fig & Olive Melrose Place, West Hollywood.

Still wowing us night after night with her red carpet choices during her first ever awards season, Lupita hasn’t faltered despite her hectic schedule which is really admirable. And once again the actress has made an inspiringly bold choice in an indigo and white Michael Kors Spring 2014 dress with an abs-baring cut-away panel.

I’d not realised until now just how muscular this petite lady was but this dress shows off her hard work to full potential.

It’s quite a bold look, but Luptia’s amazingly chic ‘do and pretty in pink lip shade really help to soften it. The Graziela Gems custom made ear cuff and wave ring add a cool touch of sparkle too.

And the bold accessories didn’t stop there. Lupita has worn stand-out blue shoes quite often now as she did at this week’s LoveGold party, and although this pair of Pedro Garcia ‘Rosette’ cobalt blue stain pumps are in-keeping with her unique style, I would have much preferred the look styled with a sandal or a more feminine pink or red pump to complement her lip shade. Do you agree?

Lupita Nyong’o In Giambattista Valli – 7th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon

Lupita Nyong'o In Giambattista Valli - 7th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon

Lupita Nyong’o attended the 7th annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood luncheon held at Beverly Hills Hotel on Thursday (February 27) in Beverly Hills, California.

Some actresses, like Christina Ricci, who have this uncanny ability to look 6ft tall. While I didn’t think Lupita was that tall, she certainly has the ability to look very statuesque which is why I was so surprised to discover how petite she was at today’s event.

We’ve seen Lupita master every trend, but the crop top trend which she worked today wearing a Giambattista Valli Spring 2014 cream two-piece look styled with matching Sophia Webster shoes, an Elie Saab clutch and Neil Lane jewels.

Opting to keep her hair simple on this occasion, she did added a gold hair band for a delightfully dainty touch.

Lupita Nyong'o In Stella McCartney - LoveGold Honors Academy Award Nominee Lupita Nyong'o

Lupita Nyong’o wowed on the red carpet as she was honoured by LoveGold at Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles on Wednesday, (February 26).

Proving once again that this is the woman who can pull off serious colour, Lupita wore a spectacular blue Stella McCartney dress with cut-out detailing and satin waist band.

The Academy Awards Nominee opted for an on-trend all-blue look by accessorising with a pair of royal blue Christian Louboutin pumps, Elena Votsi globe drop earrings and a dark blue Rauwolf box clutch.

But the highlight of this look has to be the striking blue eyeshadow. Normally this would be an instant fail but here it makes Luptia’s eyes pop. But what do you think, is it too much or do you agree that it’s great to see such a bold make-up look?

And now that we’ve seen her try out green at the 2014 BAFTAs and pink at the Chanel party, what colour will it be for this weekend’s Oscars?

Lupita Nyong'o In Lanvin - 'Non-Stop' LA Premiere

Lupita Nyong’o joined Michelle Dockery and Julianne Moore on the red carpet for the LA premiere of ‘Non-Stop’ held at the Regency Village Theatre on Monday (February 24) in Westwood, California.

Opting for a similar coppery hue to her NAACP Image Awards gown, the actress selected Lanvin on this occasion.

Her Spring 2014 shiny lamé plisse strapless dress looked slightly different to the dress which we saw on the runway, as the actress opted wear the dress with the black zipper showing to given the look a whole new dimension.

Keeping the high-shine, metallic finish theme going, she styled the look with Sergio Rossi pumps, a black Rauwolf clutch, a Solange Azagury-Partridge ring and Janis Savitt earrings.

You’ll be glad to see that she switched up the hairstyle from Saturday, giving us yet another sharp, fresh ‘do, with her makeup being the only thing that could possibly out-shine her frock.

It was a resounding nay on her Givenchy gown, so how does this look fare?
