Met Gala 2016: Lupita Nyong’o in Calvin Klein

Posted on May 03, 2016

Lupita Nyong’o attends the “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

 

Miss Lady L’s hair is taking no prisoners:

And it is truly SPECTACULAR.

Gaze upon the magnificence.

Although – risking a lightning bolt from the sky here – isn’t it a little … crooked? Granted, the fact that it’s upright at all is something of a miracle. Did they slide her on her back into an ambulance to get there? Was she lowered by helicopter? It matters not, really. Because in the end, she (and her team) created such a memorable red carpet moment that this look will be talked about for years among the fashionista set. Which is ironic…

Because the dress is a big ol’ nothing, really. It’s fine from the straps down to the waist (if a little dull), but the progressively sheer skirt doesn’t work. The top half of the look has so much structure to it. Why pair it with a dull, unstructured design that gets flimsier the further down you go?
