Lupita Nyong’o attended the 100th Annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton on Saturday (May 3) in Washington, DC.
I hate to say it, but I’m not crazy about this Oscar de la Renta Fall 2014 gown at all.
It had great potential to be another Lupita fashion homerun, but sadly this look is making her appear wider than she is.
I don’t think it’s the fault of the tulle black-and-white polka dot peplum, but rather the black silk faille skirt. It needed to be narrower, more streamlined and shorter as it is bunching up on the floor.
I’m surprised at how bad the skirt is tailored.
Look back to her Dior Couture BAFTAs gown where she looked 6ft tall, then come back to this. This gown has the opposite, shortening effect.
A complementary Oscar de la Renta ‘Goa’ clutch, Fred Leighton jewels and a hot-pink lip completed her look.
