Here’s Proof That Lupita Nyong’o Has Perfect Style Even Off The Red Carpet

In the midst of her unstoppable red carpet tour de force, Lupita Nyong’o has been making an equally impressive mark off the step-and-repeat. Recently, she stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to dish about her Oscar-nominated role in 12 Years a Slave. Annnd we had to stop ourselves from drooling.

Not everyone can work head-to-toe purple without giving off major Grimace vibes, but Lupita has managed to do just that. Her ’fit looks like a jumpsuit at first glance, but it actually consists of two separate pieces, both designed by Cushnie et Ochs. The silk tank top shows off her envious arms, while those wide-legged trousers make her look at LEAST six feet tall. Funnily enough, the entire streamlined silhouette of the ensemble gives the illusion of a red carpet-esque dress (L.’s bread and butter at this point), but leave it to Lupita to completely mix things up in the style department. She finished off her outfit with black Paul Andrew shoes, a few choice pieces of jewelry, and 100% flawless makeup. BUT THAT’S NOT WHERE THIS STORY ENDS.

Where some style-conscious ladies would opt for a wardrobe change between two different but very public events, Lupita seems to prefer the mantra: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. She didn’t change out of that now-iconic red cape for any Golden Globes after parties, and she didn’t switch out of her Fallon togs for the Sixers v. Knicks NBA game she attended immediately after her appearance either. And as well she shouldn’t. EVERYONE should see this outfit. With and without glasses.

Seriously, is this girl EVER going to have a fashion misstep? Our money is on a big fat NO.
