Fashion: One to Watch- Lupita Nyong’o

toronto-film-festival-premiere-12-years-slave-2013Lupita Nyong’o is a new name on the movie scene, but the 12 Years A Slave star is making some serious waves in the fashion world. The actress is catching headlines, not just for her critically acclaimed performance, but for her stunning red carpet style. Lupita wowed the crowds in a beautiful floor length white and gold embellished Prada gown at the Toronto Film Festival.

She’s definitely not afraid to mix it up. She rocked this monochrome tuxedo inspired dress by Prabal Gurung at the Governors Awards in November, along with some on trend purple lipstick. She also went for a rose gold Elie Saab metallic lace dress at the Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards.



A pop of colour in Victoria Beckham and of course the now iconic red Ralph Lauren cape dress did the trick for the Golden Globes red carpet and cocktail party.

We could literally go on all day. The woman is fast becoming a style icon and deservedly so.
