Lupita Nyong’o at the 2014 Met Ball — Is This Her First Fashion Fail? (VIDEO)

Don't get us wrong — Lupita Nyong’o is flawless and poised, and we want to be her BFF, but a good fashion faux pas happens to the best of us.

The 12 Years a Slave actress stepped out for the MET Ball at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on May 5, debuting a super busy look on the red carpet. Lupita herself looked glamorous as usual, but the Prada getup just did not follow suit.

The outfit consisted of a brown slip dress with an intricate beaded and feathered look on top. Matching green shoes, a green clutch bag, and a green head-piece? It's a bit Emerald City-chic for our taste, but hey, if anyone can pull it off, it's our girl Lupita.

The actress, who holds People's 2014 Most Beautiful Woman title, is usually all over the best-dressed lists. For the Oscars 2014 red carpet, Lupita wore a light blue, custom-made Prada gown — the color was so beautiful on her, and she said it reminded her of her native Nairobi. And how about that tangerine Ralph Lauren cape dress that she wore to the 2014 Golden Globes? The list goes on!

No, really, we have an entire slideshow of Lupita's best red carpet moments. While her MET Ball look might not make that list, this gal is still working it!

What do you think of Lupita's gala outfit? Sound off in the comments.
