We may be well past award season, but Lupita Nyong'o is still winning over Hollywood red carpets. The 12 Years a Slave Oscar winner wowed us once again when she hit up Marie Claire's Fresh Faces Party on April 8 at Soho House in West Hollywood, California.
For one, her hair appears to be much longer than it was at the 2014 Academy Awards — i.e. the last time she attended a major Tinseltown event. Now, the 31-year-old has it rising skyward in an updo reminiscent of Janelle Monae's iconic look.
Now let's focus on that dress! The off-white frock — from the Giambattista Valli Fall 2013 Couture Collection — features blue floral embroidery radiating from the waist, with a poodle-like skirt flaring out in graceful ruffles below. She finishes off the outfit with Christian Louboutin pumps, Graziela Gems jewels, and a Diana Broussard manicure.
The outfit is just the latest entry in a long series of Lupita’s red carpet victories — the most notable of which include her red-orange Ralph Lauren dress she wore to the 2014 Golden Globes and the silk blue Prada gown in which she accepted her Best Supporting Actress Oscar.
Take note, everyone — we have a new fashion icon in our midst!
