Lupita Nyong’o

Here is a recap of some of our favorite looks from the Oscars. This is the biggest red carpet event during award season and so we expect nothing but the best!


Viola Davis, Kerry Washington, and Jada Pinkett Smith were among our favorites during the red carpet. I love the 1920s style waves that Viola is rocking and the color of her dress. Kerry Washington is not letting the bun in the oven stop her fashion game. She is glowing in this gown! Jada Pinkett Smith surprised me with this look. It is sleek and sexy. The color has me anticipating spring more and more.

oscars10I don’t think Charlize Theron ever misses a fashion beat. She brings it every time!

Pictures152I was on the fence about Julia Roberts’ look, but I actually like the texture and lace. I love Karen O’s deep neckline with the jewel encrusted pendant. The dress flatters her figure well and you can never go wrong with black.

Pictures151I think Sandra Bullock is so underrated. She is always classy. Kate Hudson looks amazing as well and both of these ladies are setting trends for the spring with side swept curls. I thought I liked Angelina Jolie’s dress, but now that I’m looking at it again, I’m not that crazy about it…oh well.

Last but not least, I have to revisit Lupita Nyong’o’s look 🙂


Who rocked your favorite look for the Oscars?

Lupita Nyong’o definitely deserves her own post. Not only because she looked stunning in her “Cinderella-esque” Prada gown in “Nairobi Blue.” She said,

“It’s a blue that reminds me of Nairobi, and so I wanted to have a little bit of home.


This show stopping red carpet look was only the beginning. Lupita also won an Oscar for best supporting actress in “12 Years a Slave.” This has been a true fairytale for her and she deserves it all. It is great to see a woman of color so highly regarded for her great works. Often times African and  African-American are perceived in a negative light because of stereotypes perpetuated in society, she defies them all. She is well-spoken, well-dressed, talented, refined and simply amazing.

I’ve featured Lupita Nyong’o on the blog before a few months ago during the promotion of 12 Years a Slave, and we fell in love with her sense of fashion all over again during this awards season. I mean can you say SLAYED. Her looks have been pretty much flawless. She is definitely the new “It” girl since our beloved Kerry Washington.

I love that Lupita takes risks with her makeup, hairstyles, and fashion choices while keeping it CLASSY. She is a great representation of the chocolate sisters. Her skin is pretty much  flawless *cues Beyonce* and I cannot get enough of her color choices. Everything has complimented her so well. She is definitely one of my favorites this awards season. I will be keeping a close eye on her for the rest of the season. I cannot wait to see what she pulls off for the Academy Awards. Now if only we can get these magazines to embrace her for who she is and not lighten her skin SMH @ Vanity Fair.

I love how versatile her hair is. Shout out to the pick and flat top!

Which look is your favorite?

I’m going with the red Ralph Lauren dress at the Golden Globes.

“12 Years A Slave” star Lupita Nyong’o has been SLAYING the fashion game. She wears bold colors that compliments her flawless skin. Here are a few of my favorite looks from Lupita Nyong’o that she has been rocking while promoting the movie.

Pictures122Her makeup is flawless as well. She chooses great colors that pop against her skin.

Pictures123Her style is simple, yet modern and sophisticated. I would totally raid her closet!
