Who: Lupita Nyong’o
Where: At the 87th Annual Academy Awards held at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California
Wearing: A custom Calvin Klein Collection halter gown embellished in pearls and ivory beads by womenswear creative director Francisco Costa
Verdict: I thought it was going to be hard for her to top that gorgeous Prada gown from last year’s Oscars, but wow this is gorgeous. The pearl-embellished bodice is just so beautiful, and apparently the gown carries approx 6,000 beads, in five different variations of sizes, you really have to appreciate the exquisite detailing her.
For me, what makes this so special is that it is so different, I love the unique keyhole detailing, the column fit of the gown, as well as the colour on her.
I think this is a look that will be remembered for years to come.
