Lupita Nyong'o In Peter Pilotto - DuJour Magazine Cover Party

DuJour Magazine hosted a party to celebrate cover girl Lupita Nyong’o in New York City on Wednesday (February 19).

The actress wore a pretty Peter Pilotto ‘Mira’ Resort 2014 green printed dress styled with Manolo Blahnik lime green pumps, a gold Michael Nelson clutch and a Joan Horing ring.

It’s been a while since I liked Lupita’s choice of shoes, but they work perfectly on this occasion.

Do you agree?

You can buy Lupita’s Peter Pilotto ‘Mira’ Dress from farfetch.com US, farfetch.com and Luisa via Roma.

Lupita Nyong’o In Christian Dior Couture – 2014 BAFTAs

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

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?

Calvin Klein Collection Fall 2014 Front Row

Calvin Klein Collection Fall 2014 Front Row

Lupita Nyong’o and Naomi Watts attended the Calvin Klein Collection Fall 2014 fashion show during New York Fashion Week, held at Spring Studios on Thursday (February 13) in New York City.

There was heavy snow in the city, but both ladies opted for light pastel hues.

Lupita Nyong’o: The actress, who was seated next to Anna Wintour, wore a soft-pink Calvin Klein Collection Pre-Fall 2014 cozy long-sleeve dress with a tied waist which she styled with matching CK sandals and a CK grey clutch. The dress is gorgeous; it’s yet another great colour choice , but I’m not a fan of the grey clutch.

Naomi Watts: I also found myself frowning at Naomi’s dark accessories against her baby-blue sleeveless high-neck Calvin Klein Collection dress. Silver may have been a better option, however, I do love the effortlessness of her look. Both her hair and makeup are perfection. A gold Delfina Delettrez Detaille Unique bracelet completed her look.

Take both clutches out of the equation and we have two perfect chic looks.

Lupita Nyong’o In Valentino Couture – 13th Annual AARP’s Movies for Grownups Awards Gala

Lupita Nyong'o In Valentino Couture - 13th Annual AARP's Movies for Grownups Awards Gala

Lupita Nyong’o attended the 13th Annual AARP’s Movies for Grownups Awards Gala held at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel on Monday (February 10) in Beverly Hills, California following the Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon.

Opting for a smooth mocha satin dress from the Valentino Fall 2013 Couture collection, you would be forgiven if you thought this look was Cushnie et Ochs as their signature dresses feature the same cut-out neckline and spaghetti strap detailing.

This look is much improved over the Dior frock, but that wouldn’t have been too much of a stretch.

Keeping the one-tone look, she opted for matching sandals, thankfully leaving the Paul Andrews pumps at home. She did opt for a contrasting colour via her matte red lip.

Lupita Nyong'o In Chrisitan Dior - 86th Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon

Lupita Nyong’o attended the 86th Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Monday (February 10) in Beverly Hills, California.

Reaffirming her love for colour and prints; the ’12 Years A Slave’ actress wore a lilac Christian Dior Spring 2014 satin sleeveless dress, featuring a bold orange glycines print which she styled with a purple Judith Leiber clutch which matched her favoured velvet Paul Andrew shoes.

Christian Dior ‘Mise en Dior’ blue earrings and a Sandy Leong ring also accessorized her look.

Once again I find myself not warming to those Paul Andrew shoes. On this occasion they weigh down the look. I also wish the top half of her dress fit her better.

This is just OK for me.
