Lupita Nyong’o Awards Season Style Triple Shot

Posted on January 12, 2014

Lupita’s been giving us so much style to talk about that she gets the rare and highly coveted T Lo TRIPLE Shot treatment. Which sounds a little dirty once we typed it out.

WERQ. Bow down, bitches. You’re hearing a dress sing. We should’ve known she’d be a perfect fit for the Katrantzou brand. They should give her a contract.

We’re not entirely on board with the shoes, though. Once again.

Gorgeous once again. That’s a beautiful dress and fabric. Carolina Herrera should give her a contract. And as always, we find ourselves actively disliking the shoes. In this case, they’re really distracting. Whoever’s responsible for her style really knows how to pick clothes for her, but in our opinion, doesn’t quite know how to accessorize her.

And just as we found ourselves wondering if she gets a little tired of wearing bright prints…

The coat’s fine and all, but the real showpiece here is the dress, of course.

We think sometimes we and quite a few people in the style world default to the idea that dark-skinned women should wear bright and bold colors all the time. While it’s true that those colors look great on them, we think it tends to shoo such women away from wearing black, which is a timeless and universal standard chic color. We think this dress is a really fabulous way for her to turn the LBD on its head. Once again, she’s making an outfit work in a way that many other wearers couldn’t manage. Proenza Schouler should give her a contract.
