Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Lupita Nyong'o In Givenchy - NAACP Image Awards 2014Lupita Nyong’o took home the Best Supporting Actress trophy at the NAACP Image Awards 2014, hosted Saturday (February 22) at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in California.

I always look forward to the ’12 Years a Slave’ star’s red-carpet entrances. Here, she looked to the Givenchy Pre-Fall 2014 collection for inspiration, donning a ruddy, burnt-orange gown with matching Givenchy sandals and a box clutch.

The plunging bodice with harness-like detail was a structured contrast to the multi-pleated, ankle-grazing skirt, which she supplemented with an H. Stern gold cuff and long gold statement earrings.

Working with the rich desert tones, which began with the dress, she completed the effect with metallic bronze eye shadow and a mahogany-red lip—even lacquering her nails in a similar rust shade.

I’m just not sure if I’m yet on board with her new, two-sided ’do, although I appreciate the freshness of the approach.

Lupita Nyong'o  In J Mendel - Late Show with David Letterman

Lupita Nyong’o was spotted leaving the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City on Wednesday (February 19) following her guest appearance on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’.

Going from colour and print for the DuJour party, she wore head-to-toe black on this occasion.

The actress donned a J. Mendel strapless dress featuring a leather bustier, which she styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Geotistrap’ sandals and Graziela Gems earrings.

While it’s not her usually colourful turnout, I love this look from head to toe. In fact, I think I prefer it over her Peter Pilotto outing for a refreshing change of pace.

Quietly elegant and very refined. Are you glad she didn’t wear the sheer skirt look book version?

Lupita Nyong'o In Christian Dior Couture - 2014 BAFTAsLupita Nyong’o dressed to impress at the 2014 BAFTAs today (February 16), which were hosted at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

The ’12 Years a Slave’ actress yet again flexed her fashion muscle in a dazzling, emerald-green gown from the Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture collection, worn with Christian Louboutin heels.

The rich, jewel-toned hue had me at hello. Add to that the metallic belt and the long, theatrical ball-gown train, and this is what red-carpet dressing is really all about.

No doubt using the belt as inspiration, she accessorized with Ana Khouri gold ‘Ildeman’ cuffs and gold-and-pearl ‘Laura’ earrings, thankfully not going overboard with a necklace.

Once again stunning not only with her dramatic style, but also her makeup, she complemented the look with a pretty magenta lip and smoky charcoal eye.

Lupita Nyong'o In Chanel Couture - Charles Finch & Chanel Pre BAFTA Party

Wowing on the red carpet one again, Lupita Nyong’o shone bright while attending the Charles Finch and Chanel pre-BAFTA party on Saturday night (February 15) at Annabel’s in London’s Mayfair.

Wearing a rather fabulous candy pink tweed Chanel dress from the Fall 2102 collection with a matching cropped jacket, Lupita basically stole the show.

The ’12 Years a Slave’ actress has been on the promotional tour for months and still looks radiant. She is a woman who can wear colour with ease so it’s great to see her continue in her stride.

What I love most about this look is how Lupita has taken such a classic Chanel look and made it her thoroughly her own.

The high shine silver Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps add a fresh and sexy spin while the white and pink quilted Chanel bag combines ladylike with modernity.

It’s also really great to see Lupuita try out new lengths and silhouettes, but what do you think?
