Lupita Nyong'o is so talented as an actress that her first onscreen performance — as Patsey in 12 Years a Slave — won her an Acadamy Award. But if we had it our way, we'd nominate her red carpet style for a trophy, too.
Because when you put her acting talents aside, one of the things that shines the brightest is her impeccable taste in clothing. The actress has shown off an array of inspiring looks while promoting her movie around the world. She kept up that energy throughout award season, debuting showstopping looks from Dior, Gucci, Ralph Lauren, and, of course, the custom blue Prada she wore to accept her Oscar. She's worked everything from colorful to dark, formfitting to frothy, and she's not afraid to bring on the bold accessories. Lupita is clearly the one to watch this award season, with her most recent appearance involving not one but two equally stunning dresses. Just scroll down to see why we can't stop talking about this style star.
