WERQ: Lupita Nyong’o in Giambattista Valli at Marie Claire’s Fresh Faces Party

Posted on April 09, 2014

We overdosed on 3 hours of RuPaul’s Drag Race in our hotel room late last night after our L.A. signing, so forgive us for lapsing into cliche but…

Lupita Nyong’o attends the Marie Claire’s Fresh Faces Party at Soho House in West Hollywood, California in a Giambattista Valli couture dress paired with Christian Louboutin pumps and Graziela Gems floral jewelry.

In all seriousness, she’s breathtaking. The dress is stunning on her – and this is the one time her preference for matchy bridesmaid shoes actually works for her. And as always, her hair looks fabulous.

White boy question: Is that her hair or is that some sort of piece? We’re seriously asking. That’s a lot of volume springing up suddenly.

In other, highly tragic news, we’re pretty sure we missed an opportunity to attend this event because of our signing going on at the same time. There was a last minute invite from a fashion editor friend that we had to decline, but we didn’t find out until this morning who was in attendance. We suspect they could hear our wails of anguish all the way back home on the east coast. We know we always say we don’t want to party with celebs or befriend them because we need to maintain some distance in order to do this job, but COME ON. Frikkin LUPITA.

Please excuse us while we take a moment to weep softly.

But y’know? Even with that missed opportunity taunting us and haunting us, we wouldn’t have missed the opportunity to meet our L.A. Bitter Kittens for anything – not even a chance to bow down to the most fabulous Oscar winner in ages.

(Trying to get to the RPDR recap when we can, Kittens. Be patient. Three cities and four flights in 5 days. It’s a little rough at the moment.)
