Five-Minute Beauty Distraction: Lupita Nyong’o in Balmain on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

Posted on February 05, 2018

These pics are more than a couple days old, but we missed them on Friday and even though most of y’all have probably seen them already, we can’t let a good Lupita style jawn go by uncommmented-upon. Besides, there are worse things to look at on a Monday morning. We’re doing you a service here, really.

Actually, it’s Miss Lady who’s doing the work here, although she’s making it look effortless:

We are here for her big vinyl pants and we don’t care who knows it.

We imagine there would be quite a few settings inappropriate for big vinyl pants, just as there would be quite a few people on whom they would look utterly ridic. But this is not those places and she is not those people. Bottom line: it looks fantastic on her. Normally we bemoan ripped-from the runway styling, but the sequined, striped tank is the perfect accompaniment. Everything about the look is bold and exciting while remaining comfortable for her. Even if you can’t quite get behind big vinyl pants, you have to admit, it’s a memorable and highly telegenic look.

Remember when she always had problems picking the right shoe? Thank God she got this one right, because a clunky pump or platform would’ve ruined this look.
