March 20, 2019 Premiere, Runway To Red Carpet

Lupita Nyong’o In Balmain – ‘Us’ New York Premiere

Lupita Nyong'o In Balmain - 'Us' New York Premiere

After a colourful 24 hours promoting her hew film, ‘Us’ in New York City, Lupita Nyong’o attended the premiere on Tuesday (March 19) evening.

If you were expecting more colour for this premiere, you might be disappointed by this transparent PVC offering from Balmain’s Fall 2019 collection.

Balmain don’t do things by half measures, so I’m not surprised that the coat is studded, because this look would’ve been quite mute without this detailing.

Do I love this look?

No, but I don’t hate it either.  I just prefer all three of her previous looks over this one.

The majority will be glad to see that no coloured contact were used to accessorize this look, just diamante embellished T-bar PVC sandals and a metal belt.

    Her MUA slightly lost the plot here and I don’t like what the sandals do to her ankles.
    Her promo tour remains solid though.

    Well at least if she gets caught in the rain, she has a built-in waterproof cover.

    Another bad Balmain.

    It doesn’t work on her. The proportions seem to be off, there’s just something that makes it not flattering at all for her. Shame, cause the rest of the looks (those two Prabal) were really good!

    I love the change of pace…she has been killing it imo

    I don’t mind that it’s not in a color, but it’s just… underwhelming for Lupita at a premiere. I hated that Balmain collection, that specific look is one of the ‘better’ ones from it, but I’m still not loving it.

      She was doing so well, I like nothing about this look and the makeup is terrible.

    I don’t mind her taking a break from color but this isn’t a good outfit.

    This is not something for a premiere red carpet.

    The proportions of the dress look better on her than the taller model – and white is a stunning color on her. I like the change of pace and that she did not wear a gown. Her shoe game is the best it has ever been. This look goes into the win column for me.

      Came back to look again. Loving this more and more, every bit as much as her more colorful offerings. Pitch perfect for this premiere, pops against the background, an inspired choice. J’adore h2t.

    Meh, she has lost her mojo.

    We miss the 12 years a slave lupita, pls bring her back.

    I don’t mind it not being colourful and going edgy is cool too but I’m not keen on this outfit . No to that eye make-up
