Who: Best Supporting Actress winner Lupita Nyong’o
Where: At the 86th Academy Awards held in Los Angeles, California
Wearing: A custom cornflower blue silk georgette pleated Prada gown featuring a deep V-neck top to the front and back, teamed with gold and diamond jewellery from Fred Leighton including a headband, earrings and bracelet
Verdict: Lupita really has been a breath of fresh air this award season, each red carpet I have been excited to see what she wears as she mixes up her designers, silhouettes and isn’t afraid to wear colour.
This for me was easily one of my best-dressed looks – not only was the colour perfection, which she said reminded her of Nairobi her home, but I loved how the crystal embellishments on the skirt sparkled when it hit the light, especially when she went up to collection her well deserved award for her role in 12 Years A Slave.
It was also youthful, fun, and modern, as well as being fashion-forward and appropriate for the Oscars red carpet – Miucca really did well.
As well as loving the gown I also adored how the actress styled up the look with her gold jewellery including a delicate diamond headband and gorgeous ear cuff.
I love everything about this look from head-to-toe and I am so pleased that she won her speech was moving and emotional I loved that she ended it with “no matter where you’re from your dreams are valid”.
Was Lupita one of your best dressed of the night?
