There will be no Lupita Nyong’o backlash happening on our watch. The 12 Years A Slave Star is brilliant and talented and, perhaps most importantly (fashion blog), she’s fashiony. Her natural gorgeousness helps, but a lot of people are beautiful and not a lot of people dress as well as she does. She dresses better than some people for whom dressing well is a full-time job, and for her dressing well is just an itsy bitsy, miniscule, peripheral part of her actual job, which is pretending to be other people on camera.
Last night she went on camera as herself on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and she blew us away in this amazing purple jumpsuit.
Does the cast of American Hustle know she has this?
While at first glance we thought she was wearing an epic jumpsuit, this is actually a silk top and wide-leg trousers from Cushnie et Ochs. A dress would have been more traditional, but we’ve seen Nyong’o in a lot of dresses lately, and we love the way she constantly mixes her looks up so that she never gets stale. The streamlined silhouette and matching colors of this ensemble make her look like she’s a million feet tall.
Her beauty game is spot-on as usual. She always looks so radiant and glowing, we do not believe she has ever been sleepy or had a pimple in her entire life.
