Lupita Nyong'o: Red Carpet Season MVP

The Academy Awards tonight sealed the deal for new-comer actress Lupita Nyong'o. I'm not talking about how many awards she has won or how often she has been recognized for her superior acting in "12 Years a Slave," but rather, her amazing red carpet choices.

She has blown the crowds away with her amazing gowns. Red, teal, white, baby blue and emerald green - they're different and daring and the colors look impeccable with her flawless dark skin. It also doesn't hurt that she's so humble and genuine in interviews on camera. 

Here's a quick review of her stand-out looks from the past few months. 

 Golden Globe Awards. Wearing: Ralph Lauren. January 12, 2014.

Critic's Choice Awards. Wearing: Calvin Klein. January 16, 2014.

Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards. Wearing: Gucci. January 18, 2014. 

The British Academy of Film & Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards. Wearing: Dior Couture. February 16, 2014. 

 The Academy Awards. Wearing: Prada. March 2, 2014.

This is my absolute favorite out of all of her amazing looks. The sky blue colors pops and looks so beautiful on her. Lupita even commented in an interview that this blue shade reminds her of Nairobi, where she grew up for part of her life. The gown is so simple, yet so elegant. She was hands down the best dressed at The Academy Awards...not to mention she also won Best Supporting Actress.  

Are you loving Lupita's looks as much as I am? Who was your favorite from the Academy Awards?


  1. I'm equally obsessed with the Ralph Lauren & the Prada. Lupita looks flawless!

  2. It's true - she really can do no wrong. My favorite was the white. Stunning!

  3. Wow she is breathtakingly beautiful! Great post :)
