Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

Best Dressed of The Week - Lupita Nyong'o in Gucci & James Marsden in Valentino

I can’t believe I forgot to announce the winners of last week BDOTW; thanks Alina.

It was quite an easy win for Lupita Nyong’o in her breath-taking Gucci gown from the SAG Awards. With two more events to go, I’m excited to see if she can top this one.

James Marsden had a bit more competition but eventually won for looking so very dapper in his Valentino suit.

In the latest Miu Miu video shot by Inez and Vinoodh, they dive into a techno interpretation of the Spring 2014 collection, starring a new generation of Hollywood talents (Lupita Nyong’o, Elle Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen and Bella Heathcote).

With video game speed and sounds, we discover the four actresses’ imaginary bedrooms through the liquid slide projections created by overlaying the footage with magnificent patterns of the Miu Miu prints.

Lupita Nyong'o In Cushnie Et Ochs - Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

Lupita Nyong’o made a guest appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday (January 22).

The ’12 Years a Slave’ SAG and Critics’ Choice Award winner, shared stories about her family, their reaction to her much-deserved Oscar nomination and that she thought Emma Thompson was ‘a riot’ having photobombed her on the red SAGs carpet.

Dressed in a Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2014 sleeveless cowl neck crop top and high-waist, wide-leg trousers, it’s once again the colour which I find so captivating about this look.

We haven’t seen her wear many looks featuring trousers, so this is a nice change of pace.

It’s always exciting to see what she’s going to wear next. While you all know what dress I would like to see her wear on the red carpet at the Oscars, the honour will surely go to Miuccia Prada, considering Lupita is the current face of Miu Miu.

Best Dressed Of The Week - Lupita Nyong'o In Ralph Lauren & Calvin Klein Collection and Chris Pine In Ermenegildo Zegna Couture2

You know you are a fashion force to be reckoned with when on a best-dressed poll the only person you are in competition with is yourself. That is what happened this week when Lupita Nyong’o’s Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein Collection looks ended up first and second place.

The majority of you picked Lupita’s Ralph Lauren Golden Globes gown. I also loved this look, but my favourite was the Calvin Klein Collection custom gown.

The Ralph Lauren look had too much of a Gwyneth Paltrow/Zhang Ziyi déjà vu-ness about it, which lost it half a point.

However, don’t be surprised if the Ralph Lauren ends up in my BDOTY list ahead of the CK, because that cape is clearly the more memorable ‘I’ve really arrived’ look.

When it came to the fellas there was no such dilemma. It was Team Chris Pine all the way; he took looking devilishly handsome, in a classic Ermenegildo Zegna Couture suit, to a whole new level.
