We weren’t even going to feature these pics today because even though this is more striking than 95% of what you see on the average red carpet, we fear that we may be overloading on Lupita, not to mention overpraising her. But then we realized we’re going to see a lot less of her after the Oscars on Sunday (at least for only a little while, we hope) and that decided things for us.
Lupita Nyong’o attends the 2014 Essence Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon in Beverly Hills, California in a Giambattista Valli ensemble paired with an Elie Saab clutch, Sophia Webster pumps, and Neil Lane jewelry.
Best to overload on her now in preparation for the drought to come once the awards season poledance comes to a close.
Love the top and skirt. Hate the clutch and shoes. But you knew that already. Oh, kittens. How we’ll miss these times once they’re gone.
