Lupita Nyong’o In Prada – 2017 Met Gala

It’s been a while since we saw Lupita Nyong’o on the red carpet, but judging by her Prada gown worn to the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1), it would appear she hasn’t lost that magic touch.

I was very excited not only by the bright coral hue, but also by the organza flowers across the neckline which cascaded down the back adding plenty of flare.

Colour has always been the foundation of Lupita’s style, so if you don’t witness it in the dress, you’re bound to catch some colour in her makeup.

Was the rainbow eye shadow a step too far, or are you loving the creativity of the look?

Lupita Nyong’o In Proenza Schouler – ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ London Premiere

Lupita Nyong'o In Proenza Schouler  - ‘Star Wars The Force Awakens’ London Premiere

Lupita Nyong’o joined Daisy Ridley for the premiere of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ at Leicester Square on Wednesday (December 16) in London, England.

Fully awakening the futuristic fashion force within her, she wore a Proenza Schouler Spring 2016 directional ensemble that was nothing short of business on the top and party on the bottom.

While the peplum-inspired, criss-cross top translated rather heavily, the sheer mesh, pearl-studded skirt lightened up the look.

I have a feeling that the galactic blue lip, silver statement earrings, and mesh hair accessory will have taken the whole look slightly into costume-y territory for many of you.

But you have to admire her willingness to push the boundaries—and the fact that she wasn’t wearing solid pumps.

Lupita Nyong’o In David Koma – ‘The Ellen Degeneres Show’

Lupita Nyong'o In David Koma - 'The Ellen Degeneres Show'

Lupita Nyong’o made a guest appearance on ‘The Ellen Degeneres Show’ on Monday (December 14) in Los Angeles, where she continued to promote her hit movie, ‘’Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ prior to the movie’s LA premiere.

We’re all well aware of the David Koma’s talents, but here his deft tailoring skills really came into play when he created this side zip belted jacket, which despite its detailing doesn’t look overworked.

The look was brought together with an swing dual-colour skirt also from the Spring 2016 collection, and a Wolford bodysuit.

I was delighted she opted for light-pink pumps here, as black would’ve really weighed down the look.

Lupita Nyong’o In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ LA Premiere

Lupita Nyong’o attended the premiere of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ on Monday (December 14) in Hollywood, California.

The actress wore a Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2015 Couture silver and green crystal encrusted gown which shone brightly on the red carpet.

With all that sparkle I should be foaming at the mouth with excitement, but I’m not, as those black bands around the waist are so unforgiving.

Had this been worn on someone taller, with a longer torso – like the runway model – perhaps I could’ve got on board with this, but I’m not a fan of this on Lupita.

The look was complete with Chopard jewels.

Lupita Nyong’o made a guest appearance on ‘Despierta America’ to promote her latest movie, ‘Star Wars The Force Awakens’ at Univision Studios on Thursday (December 10) in Miami, Florida.

Tailored in to a wide leg silhouette, Lupita’s Christian Siriano Spring 2016 jumpsuit sets the tone for a cool sense of modern elegance.

While her styling is flawless, a part of me wishes she opted for a punchy lip colour.
