Unless you’ve been living under a rock this past award season, you know that Lupita Nyong’o has become an overnight style sensation. This girl looks amazing in everything she puts on. Her skin tone makes for the perfect backdrop for bold colors and her model-like figure doesn’t hurt either.
Her red carpet looks have managed to upstage even the brightest of stars. Her re-caped Ralph Lauren dress at the Golden Globes and jaw-dropping Cinderella blue Prada gown at the Oscars – are gowns for the history books.
Lupita may be best known for wearing simple, elegant evening gown but she has been spotted in some funky, structured pieces as well. Bottom line, the girl can wear anything. In fact, Lupita has yet to be photographed in something “questionable” – thanks to her her stylist, Micaela Erlanger.
If you want to look like Lupita turn to her favorite designers for inspiration. She loves everything from the classics heavy-hitters like Prada, Calvin Klein, Gucci, Ralph Lauren, Dior, and Chanel. All the way to funkier labels like Lanvin, Peter Pilotto, Prabal Gurung, and Rodarte. Look for bold colors and unique silhouettes when you are out shopping.
