It’s happening, darlings! It’s happening! We hoped and prayed that Miss Lupita would be ramping up her style game as we got closer to the Oscars, and we predicted that the results were going to be jawdropping (which, to be fair, was a fairly easy prediction to make).

Jennifer Lawrence is screaming into a phone right now, to frightened Dior reps on the other end of the line, demanding to know why she didn’t get this dress.
Even if that’s not true (oh please let it be true), it should be. Because of her Dior contract, J Law’s been forced to galump up and down the red carpets of the world in some seriously awkward and fug representations of the brand this past year. But here’s Lupita, calmly getting out of her limo and gliding her way down the red carpet, a look of serene confidence on her face as she silently says “Suck it, girl. They may give you a contract, but you’re never gonna WERQ a Dior as good as this.”
Although we have to say, we’re not inclined to love the Wonder Woman bracelets; especially since they replicate the belt. One cuff would be fine; two, paired with that belt, takes it close to costume. Even so, she looks so outrageously good that it’s not really affecting our overall reaction, which is, of course, all about the neck rolls and the three snaps in Z formation.
You WERQ that “green goddess” shit, girl.
