Oscars 2015: Lupita Nyong’o In Calvin Klein Collection

lupita-calvin-klein

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.

Golden Globes 2015: Lupita Nyong’o In Giambattista Valli

Who: Lupita Nyong’o

Where: At the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California

Wearing: A purple and white Giambattista Valli couture gown from the autumn/winter 2014 collection, teamed with Chopard jewellery

Verdict: Lupita Nyong’o was one of the best red carpet stars last award season and I love that she has kicked off 2015 in the same spirit. Unlike most stars who opted for red, yellow, white or silver, it seems that Lupita didn’t get that memo and went for something more dramatic with this floral-like couture gown.

Not only was the colour a statement, I love that shade of purple against her skin tone, but I love the flower-like qualities of the dress, it is like the bodice is embellished with petals, as well as the movement of the chiffon skirt.

This gown is like a work of art and I think Lupita showed it off beautifully with matching lavender make-up and a short afro hair-do.

 

Cover Loving: Lupita Nyong’o Nails Her First Vogue Cover

I am so pleased that Lupita Nyong’o is gracing her first Vogue cover, she really did make the 2014 award season *do you remember her white Calvin Klein gown*, and I am even more pleased that it is a great cover.

Shot by Mikael Jansson, Lupita looks incredible in this Marrakech photoshoot wearing vibrant designs by Proenza Schouler, Rodarte, Vera Wang, Jonathan Saunders, Givenchy and Prada that gorgeous red and purple print dress looks insane on her.

I think one of my favourite shots has to be where Lupita is reclining against a red velvet couch wearing a printed Rodarte gown, I love that the prints are so similar that her beauty really becomes the focal point of the picture, and I think the gorgeous Moroccan setting was just genius. So beautiful.

I think this will be the first of many major covers for Lupita and I can’t wait to see what else this gorgeous actress has to share.

Are you pleased that Lupita has scored her first Vogue cover?

Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Lupita Nyong’o Changes Into Miu Miu

VF-Miumiu-LupitaWho: Lupita Nyong’o

Where: At the Vanity Fair Oscar Party 2014 in West Hollywood, California

Wearing: A seafoam green Miu Miu belted silk gown with green beaded fringe along the neckline, teamed with matching peep-toe heels and the same Fred Leighton headband from the main event, oh and carrying her Oscar statue

Verdict: I loved the pale blue Prada gown and it was perfect for Lupita to float up the stairs to collect her Best Supporting Actress Oscar, but this cute column gown was the fun party frock that the Vanity Fair party needs and kind of reminds me of the change Jennifer Lawrence made last year in its silhouette.

I love the green beading on the bodice, it really does make this dress shine, and I love that she kept that cute Fred Leighton headband on – it was such a hit on the Oscars red carpet.

Which look do you prefer – her blue Prada gown or this Miu Miu beauty?
