Loving Lupita: Our Fashion Director on Hollywood’s New It Girl

By Jackie Nasser, Rue La La Fashion Director

 
She seemingly came out of nowhere, but now, this girl is on everyone’s radar. And I mean everyone’s. After nabbing the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress from right under Jennifer Lawrence’s nose, stealing the show at every red-carpet event, and sparking dating rumors with fellow Oscar winner Jared Leto (he even referred to her as “my future ex-wife” in one of his acceptance speeches), it’s no wonder we’re all a little Lupita-obsessed right now.

While her performance in 12 Years a Slave got our attention, it’s her unique style that has us all really enthralled. It’s not easy to outshine Angelina Jolie, Cate Blanchett, and Julia Roberts on the red carpet, but somehow, Lupita has managed to do it time and again. Here are my picks for her top five awards-show looks.

Say Hello to Hollywood’s Newest Style Icon, Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita Nyong’o. She’s the Oscar-nominated breakout star of the critically acclaimed movie 12 Years a Slave. But before the groundbreaking flick hit theaters, odds are you probably hadn’t heard of her. And now? All of America is tuning in to see what she’ll be wearing on the red carpet.

From her bright red Ralph Lauren caped confection at the Golden Globes to her bandeau Calvin Klein dress at the Critics’ Choice Awards, she’s topped just about every best-dressed list this awards season – not to mention been named one of Vogue’s top ten rising style stars. So while we don’t know what the Oscar envelope will hold come March, my money’s on Lupita winning best-dressed. Hands down.
