Guys. Lupita Nyong’o has ARRIVED! The Oscars are the most important night of the year for Hollywood’s hard workers, but let’s be honest: Everyone is REALLY tuning in this year to see what Lupita would wear. And now that the wait is over, we can *officially* announce that our favorite fashionista has nailed it yet again.
The Best Supporting Actress nominee looks every bit the fairy-tale princess she undoubtedly feels like on this momentous occasion. Her headband and sparkly blue Prada gown are giving us some serious Cinderella vibes, but the personal touches to the ensemble are 100% Lupita. First of all, her ring is actually a teeny-tiny frog, which she has referred to as her “family totem” several times on Instagram. Oy with the cuteness already.
And then there’s the COLOR. Since Lupita has worn literally every color ever invented, we weren’t sure there were any hues left for her to rock tonight. Well, color us surprised (heh). In her red carpet interview with Ryan Seacrest, Lupita called the shade “a blue that reminds me of Nairobi.” She said she grew up in classrooms with similarly blue walls, making this the loveliest tribute to one’s hometown we can imagine.
Lupita, not that we ever thought you would, but thank you for SO not disappointing us. Ever.
