Lupita Nyong’o In Prada – 2017 Met Gala

It’s been a while since we saw Lupita Nyong’o on the red carpet, but judging by her Prada gown worn to the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1), it would appear she hasn’t lost that magic touch.

I was very excited not only by the bright coral hue, but also by the organza flowers across the neckline which cascaded down the back adding plenty of flare.

Colour has always been the foundation of Lupita’s style, so if you don’t witness it in the dress, you’re bound to catch some colour in her makeup.

Was the rainbow eye shadow a step too far, or are you loving the creativity of the look?

    She could of worked something much edgier…she looks gorgeous of course. love the orange but ya, another event.

    She looks gorgeous, this color is beautiful on her. The itself is nothing particularly exciting, save for the color.

    Stunning. Great color on her, and I love playful eye makeup.

    I usually love her MUA Nick Barose but this look feels a little disjointed…however, Lupita is so gorgeous she can pull off just about anything. The dress is lovely. Points to Prada!

    I will happily stand in my unfavored corner as I find this color totally wrong for Lupita.
    and the eye makeup looked like a pre-school homework.

    Perfection. She’s my QUEEN. No matter what.

    Stunning, but wished she went with the theme.

      I agree. This whole look is lovely, but not for this event. Lupita has an alter-ego called Troublemaker, and I wanted to see Troublemaker last night.

    I love the makeup, but I want to see the back of the gown!

    This is nice and I like the flower aspect. The makeup is fun and Lupita is more risk-taking than most, so even though it’s not necessarily the most fluid look, I appreciate the idea.

    The dress is beautiful and the color is good on her. The eye makeup up is awful.

    How stunning can this woman look in bright colours! Absolutely in love with this!

    Lupita can have fun with fashion, but considering last year’s nice but meh CK gown, this pretty but meh look isn’t a surprise.

    Love love love the dress – hate the eyeshadow (it looks like it was applied by a 6 year old)

    Beautiful color and design on her, missing the edge though.
