Lupita Nyong’o In Stella McCartney – 2014 Producers Guild of America Awards

Lupita Nyong'o In Stella McCartney - 2014 Producers Guild of America Awards

Lupita Nyong’o attended the 25th annual Producers Guild of America Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday (January 19) in Beverly Hills, California following yet another breathtaking red carpet appearance at the SAG Awards on Saturday.

The stunning actress wore a fitted Stella McCartney knee-length frock with an asymmetrical shoulder in a beautiful fawn hue, which looked gorgeous against her smooth skin.

Opting to go matchy matchy with the snakeskin clutch, I wish she’d gone one step further with the strappy Stella McCartney sandals, which are brown and totally anonymous here.

A berry lip colour and Jamie Wolf earrings completed yet another striking look.

Stand back; we don’t want this roll to end.

Lupita Nyong’o In Gucci – 2014 SAG Awards

Lupita Nyong'o In Gucci - 2014 SAG Awards

Lupita Nyong’o continued her impressive style streak at the 2014 SAG Awards on Saturday (January 18) at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.

With every look seemingly better than the next, the ’12 Years a Slave’ star completely blew me away in a one-of-a-kind Gucci stunner with a subtle train, which thankfully received even more stage time, given her outstanding supporting actress win.

Not only was the turquoise colour completely earth-shattering, the silk crepe column gown’s gold-and-turquoise, floral-embroidered straps were absolute artistry.

On the red carpet, Lupita said she fell in love with the flowers and the nature aspect of the design—and rightfully so.

The perfection continued with delicate Fred Leighton jewels that complemented, rather than cluttered, the dress, along with a gorgeous makeup look that included striking teal and pink eye shadow and a magenta lip.

Were you as enamoured with this entrance as I?

Lupita Nyong’o In Vintage Valentina – Entertainment Weekly’s SAG Awards Nominees Party

Lupita Nyong'o In Vintage Valentina - Entertainment Weekly's SAG Awards Nominees Party

Lupita Nyong’o attended Entertainment Weekly’s celebration honoring the 2014 SAG Awards nominees, held at the Chateau Marmont on Friday (January 17) in Los Angeles, California joining Kerry Washington and Alyssa Milano.

The breakout star of awards season, who has already exceeded many of our expectations on the red carpet, wore a fancy vintage Valentina dress from New York Vintage for her red carpet look.

Her 60s frock with floral embroidered detailing and colourful bead work was styled with an Amanda Pearl clutch, Paul Andrew pewter pumps and Platt jewels including a hair brooch, which perhaps wasn’t really needed with this look, but I appreciate the efforts to keep her cropped do interesting.

Many of you have said that while you love Lupita’s style, the shoes can often leave a lot to be desired.

In this case I agree. Loving this look from the ankles up.

Lupita Nyong'o In Calvin Klein Collection - 2014 Critics' Choice Movie Awards

Lupita Nyong’o attended the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at Barker Hangar on Thursday (January 16) in Santa Monica.

Dressed to thrill, she wore a custom Calvin Klein Collection ivory silk crepe bandeau dress styled with a Calvin Klein Collection gold box clutch, Paul Andrew custom shoes, and Kimberly McDonald Jewelry.

Once again, it’s a jaw-dropping look, highlighting her envied physique and smooth skin tone.

Her makeup continues to be consistently brilliant with a pink lip colour and smokey grey eyes rounding out her look.

Just when she thought she may have peaked too soon at the Globes, she goes and does it again.

Lupita Nyong’o In Jonathan Cohen – Jimmy Kimmel Live

Lupita Nyong’o made a guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel last night (January 14) where she talked about going from being a student at Yale, to starring in ’12 Years A Slave’, to meeting people she’s starstruck over like Leonardo DiCaprio at The Golden Globes on Sunday.

With her fashion-icon status all but sealed, every item she wears will come under closer scrutiny, but she appears to be taking it all in her stride. Even Jimmy commented on her dress during this interview.

The actress wore a sporty Jonathan Cohen Spring 2014 frock featuring a surfer print in a cool-blue hue, with matching pumps and a bright-red lip rounding out her look.

Her short ‘do was again side parted, this time in two places, as she continued to pay homage to the formidable Grace Jones.

Lupita Nyong’o, Elle Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen & Bella Heathcote for Miu Miu Spring 2014

Miu Miu Spring 2014 ad campaign (2)

Miu Miu’s Spring 2014 campaign features a few of our favourite Hollywood starlets.

Lupita Nyong’o, who has been wearing a lot of Prada/Miu Miu lately; Elle Fanning, who wears the same dress we recently saw on Miu Miu’s Resort 2014 campaign girl; Lea Seydoux; Elizabeth Olsen, who sports super-long locks for the campaign; and Bella Heathcote, who is totally unrecognisable.

Apart from the mix of young talent, I love this campaign’s vintage-inspired styling. I have my eye on those Courrèges coats, cute thigh-high pop socks, and Olsen’s tan suede lace-up boots.

Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin shot the campaign back in November, just as the buzz around Lupita was bubbling.

“The actresses’ poses, full of personality, convey their diverse points of view, effortlessly translating the new spirit of the Miu Miu woman”, said Miuccia Prada.
