Lupita Nyong'o has quickly become a trendsetter and true Hollywood star. Within few months from the release of 12 Years a Slave, the British film in which she plays a highly acclaimed supportive role, the Kenyan actress has managed to awe the industry and audience alike with her freshness, beauty and style.
She looked simply stunning at the BAFTA Awards in London on February 16, wearing a strapless silk emerald green gown with elaborate skirt by Dior Haute Couture. The dress' strong and neat design was wisely matched by minimal gold jewellery, including a pair of wide bracelets and a dazzling belt.
Earlier this year, it was at the Golden Globe Awards night that the 30 year old actress stormed into Hollywood like the fashion force she is, wearing a bright red Ralph Lauren dress featuring a cape and rigorous lines.
And the newly proclaimed queen of red carpets apparently is loving the spotlight and glamour: "I'm really enjoying playing dress up and having things to dress up for." she told E-Magazine.
So what do you think she will choose for the upcoming 86th Academy Awards show in March 2014?
If we were Lupita's personal stylist, we would know what to look for for such a special occasion. First, the colour of the dress should be a solid, bright nuance that highlights her amazing complexion; second, the design must be clean cut, glamorously no-frills with a futuristic touch; third, it should be a dress fit for the red carpet queen of the night.
We think we found just the right gown: a splendid, regally designed Armani evening dress, very long and with straps and a deep, jewelled neckline. Elegantly sexy, thanks to the way it wraps the figure and the high cut on one tight. And in terms of colour, it would look just awesome on the 12 Years a Slave star: a deep turquoise with bronze details, included the jewelled neckline. Part of the opulent Autumn-Winter 2014-2015 collection presented by Armani at the Milan Fashion Week 2014 runaway show.
