Lupita Nyong’o In Giambattista Valli Couture – Marie Claire Celebrates May Cover Stars

Lupita Nyong'o In Giambattista Valli - Marie Claire Celebrates May Cover Stars

After having a much deserved break following awards season, Lupita Nyong’o was back on the red carpet for the Marie Claire Celebrates May Cover Stars party on Tuesday (April 8) in West Hollywood, California joining Kate Mara.

Sporting yet another new ‘do, the ’12 Years a Slave’ actress donned a Giambattista Valli Fall 2013 Couture dress fine-tuned with a fit-and-flare silhouette and blue floral embroidery.

I love how the cut gives her a girlier flair and pretty poise.

This is also aided by her magenta lip colour, Louboutin pumps and Graziela Gems floral jewels.

Lupita Nyong’o for Lancôme

Lupita Nyong’o for Lancôme

Following an epic red carpet run during awards season, which saw the actress experiment with a wide array of lips colours and eye shadows thanks to her makeup artist Nick Barose, I knew it would only be a matter of time before Lupita Nyong’o was scooped up by a beauty brand.

The Oscar winner has been snapped up by French giant Lancôme, joining Julia Roberts, Penélope Cruz, Kate Winslet and Lily Collins as a celebrity ambassador for the brand this September.

Of her new appointment, the ambassadress said “I am particularly proud to represent [Lancôme’s] unique vision for women and the idea that beauty should not be dictated, but should instead be an expression of a woman’s freedom to be herself.”

Lupita will be the first woman of colour to represent the French brand since Dominican model Arlenis Sosa in 2008.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Lupita Nyong’o In Prada, Kate Hudson In Atelier Versace & Pink In Elie Saab Couture

Best Dressed Of The Week - Lupita Nyong'o In Prada, Kate Hudson In Atelier Versace & Pink In Elie Saab Couture

With so many great looks to hit the red carpet last week you had trouble picking a clear favourite, so the honour was shared between the fairytale Prada gown worn by Lupita Nyong’o and Kate Hudson’s caped creation from Atelier Versace.

I still have goosebumps from Pink’s Elie Saab Couture red embellished gown. Even though I had this on my wish list for Jessica Chastain, the singer looked outstanding in her Oscar performance look.

Which Was Your Favourite Lupita Nyong’o 2014 Awards Season Look?

Lupita Awards Season 2014

Lupita Nyong’o has been a breath of fresh air since she hit the red carpet. Her awards-season run was as expected: spectacular.

We’ve never seen so much colour from one celebrity (excpepct perhaps Elizabeth Banks), and or such a variety of hairstyles from such a short hair cut.

Trying to narrow down my favourite look is like asking a mother ‘who is your favourite child?’

My top four are Calvin Klein at the Critics’ Choice Awards, Gucci at the SAG Awards, Dior Couture at the BAFTAs and Ralph Lauren at the Globes.

Are you having a hard time narrowing your favourite to just one?

Miu Miu Fall 2014 Front Row

Miu Miu FROW

A host of stars, including many faces of the brand, took to the front row of Miu Miu’s Fall 2014 show in Paris, France this morning (March 5) during Paris Fashion Week.

Rihanna: After looking chic in Chanel yesterday, she looked a hot mess today at Miu Miu. Over-styled and overworked in garish colours, nothing from the knees up is appealing to me. She wore a Prada red nappa leather and black shearling overcoat, paired with a tobacco and yellow intarsia-knit cashmere sweater and purple silk scarf, all from the Prada Fall 2014 collection.

Lea Seydoux: The French beauty cleanses my eyes from Rihanna’s car-crash Couture, wearing a pretty pastel look featuring a petal-pink printed silk blouse and ‘Ciré’ vinyl pencil skirt with Jimmy Choo bronze heels. While the look reads spring, it is so very pretty and styled effortlessly that I just can’t help but fall in love with it.
