Covering Lupita Nyong’o‘s red carpet victories is an easy beat, because she has yet to disappoint anybody. At the big event like the Golden Globes or the Critics’ Choice Awards, she knocks down everyone else like blades of grass. At smaller events and more low-key parties, she shows us how we want to dress all the time.
Normally we go in for a bit of seasonality with our dressing. We like cozy layers for winter and chiffon in the summer and yes, florals for spring. But at the Entertainment Weekly party honoring the Screen Actors Guild Award nominees yesterday, Lupita Nyong’o showed up bedecked in tiny flowers, and suddenly we miss spring more than we knew.
Just Jared reports that the dress is by Valentina, and we are in love with it. It’s youthful and sexy and has a bit of a 1960s thing going on, and the whole effect is just refreshing. Her shoes might be a bit heavy for the look, but we need that Amanda Pearl clutch on our dressing tables.
And she’s once again spot on with the beauty game. She’s so gorgeous it’s almost unfair to even talk about her makeup, but her skin is as luminous and radiant as if she just woke up from falling asleep beneath a magic tree full of golden fairy dust. The coral-y lip tint is fantastic on her.
A lot of stars can consistently look gorgeous on the red carpet, but very few people can pull it off without ever boring us. Lupita Nyong’o doesn’t show any signs of getting dull any time soon.
