Everybody, just calm down. Take deep breaths and try not to overreact. Lupita Nyong’o is standing on a real red carpet. In person. In 2021. It’s a lot to take in and if you need a moment to steady yourself before scrolling down, we’re here for you, kittens.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! OMGOMGOMG!!!!!! WELCOME BACK, CHECKERBOARD QUEEN!!!!!!
See? Calm and cool. That’s how you do it when you’re a seasoned red carpet opinion journalist. As the queen herself says, it’s good to see her back in the world again. She’s serving us a little bit of Janelle Monae realness, but it look great on her. Then again, just about anything would look great on her to our weary eyes. Welcome back, Queen. Never leave us again.
