IN or OUT: Lupita Nyong’o in Chanel at the MoMA 2013 Film Benefit

Posted on November 06, 2013

She’s been riding a wave of T Lo + Bitter Kitten love ever since she came on the scene, but for the first time, we’re not entirely feeling one of her outfits.


Lupita Nyong’o attends The Museum Of Modern Art 2013 Film Benefit – A Tribute To Tilda Swinton in New York City in Chanel.

That is a whole lot of look to pull off and while we like some parts of it, others strike us as outside her wheelhouse. On the latter point specifically: the shoes and skirt. The shoes are clunky and heavy and the shape and length of the skirt isn’t suiting her. Slightly more fitted and maybe an inch or two longer and the proportions would work. But the shoes definitely have to go. Swap them out for something simpler and keep her away from the beartrap styles. And while we love the jacket, we really don’t love the neckline of the dress underneath it.

On the other hand, she’s gorgeous and it’s hard to make the claim that she looks bad. But for us, this is not an outfit that works for her. Kittens make the call:

IN! WERQ that Chanel, bitch!


OUT! Girl, that’s not your Chanel.




In other news, y’all nitpicked the flaws in Amy Adam’s ’40s drag, but still voted it IN. Capricious Kittens.
