Lupita Nyong’o was on double duty this weekend promoting ‘Us’ and ‘Little Monsters’ during the 2019 SXSW Conference And Festival.
‘Us’ SXSW Premiere: This cut-out slick Honayda Spring 2019 suit, seemed like the perfect canvas for Lupita to be more creative with her hair and makeup to promote this horror thriller. You may find yourself on either side of the fence (horrified or thrilled) by the styling. I didn’t get either until I understood the inspiration. Anne Lennox and Grace Jones for her makeup and Snoop Dogg for the hair. The jury is still out on the hair.
‘Little Monsters’ SXSW Premiere: I was excited to see Lupita second look master pattern play. I’ll admit I thought this was Duro Olowu at first, but this dainty African-inspired look hails from Alice + Olivia’s Resort 2019 collection. Malone Souliers ‘Robyn’ pumps and a top handle bag completed my favourite look of the two.
