Lupita Nyong’o Goes a Bit Generic at the Crystal + Lucy Awards

Posted on June 14, 2017

Lupita Nyong’o attends the Women in Film 2017 Crystal + Lucy Awards presented by Max Mara and BMW at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.


Boy, we sure do miss poledancing-for-an-Oscar Lupita and poledancing-for-Star-Wars Lupita.

We’re just saying. Sure, Miss Lady has a right to take things easy when she’s not pushing product out to the masses. And this is an event to celebrate women in media. even if it is another celebrity awards show. It’s not that this is casual and low-key. It’s that it’s so neutral and generic as to make her invisible. Granted, she made up for it with the lip color, but that only makes it feel more out of balance. Like she’s leaving a long day at the office for a booty call or something.

We like both pieces, actually. Or at least, we don’t find either of them objectionable on their own. We just don’t think basic shapes and a muddy color scheme are her best friends on the red carpet. Since we like the blouse the most, we’d suggest keeping that and then switching out the pants for a more colorful pair. We might even suggest a print in a slimmer cut, just to give it a more springtime feel.
