Some ladies are meant to be fashion stars. That is the case with actress Lupita Nyong' o who stole the red carpet fashion show at the 2014 SAG Awards in Los Angeles on January 18, 2014 according to RCFA.
The '12 Years A Slave' beauty could not have picked a more beautiful gown then her selection of Gucci for this event. The aqua silk crepe column design was incredibly figure flattering and also packed a powerful punch of color. That bold color against her skin was just amazing. The design featured huge floral aqua and gold embellished straps which crisscrossed in the back and a modest train. She accented with delicate gold Fred Leighton jewelry and custom Louboutins.
Makeup played an important role with Lupita's look. She went with a bold aqua eye and pink lips. This only worked because of her coloring. On most ladies this kind of bright makeup would be too much. The eye shadow worked so well with her gown color. It was also a good choice not to add color in her jewelry. The embellished neckline functioned like jewelry and appeared to be a necklace at first glance.
Lupita won for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor for her role as Patsey in the historical drama '12 Years A Slave' which was directed by Steve McQueen.
Lupita has been getting quite a bit of fashion attention on the red carpet for her bold and colorful design choices and we are totally impressed. The awards she is winning validate her acting skill. She seems to have it all.
My guess is she will go on to win an Oscar and most certainly the best dressed actress for the season. Bravo!
