Lupita Nyong’o Serves it Up in Balmain at the The National Board of Review Awards Gala

Posted on January 10, 2018

After 60 straight hours hashing out all the black clothes on the Golden Globes red carpet, we’re practically starving for a little bit of color and pop in our red carpet coverage. But Miss Lupita isn’t having it. And to be honest, she’s one of the few people we’d give the spotlight to right now, even though she’s not wearing any color. Why? Because she’s Lupita.

And Lupita always gives us something to look at.

LOVE this. The pants are a pleasant surprise. (Nevermind, it’s a skirt – still nice, tho!) The touches of silver bump up the glam and formality. The broad shoulders and crop top look great on her. And of course her hair is to-die-for. Could’ve done without that big honkin’ zipper, especially since it’s puckered all to hell, but we’re feeling way too many good feelings here to let that bit distract us. We’re pretending not to see it from now on. Coco Chanel may have said “Elegance is refusal,” to which we say “Fabulous is denial.”
