This newcomer is the talk of Tinseltown! Since her breakout role in 12 Years a Slave, Oscar nominee Lupita Nyong'o has received just as much critical acclaim for her impeccable red carpet looks as her impressive acting chops. See the Brooklyn resident's best gowns and festive frocks here!
The 12 Years a Slave Best Supporting Actress winner looked gorgeous in a powder blue silk pleated gown by Prada featuring a deep V-neck bodice and low-cut sides. "It's a blue that reminds me of Nairobi," the Kenya-born star told Ryan Seacrest of her dress color. The Yale grad paired her look with a gold and diamond headband and jewels by Fred Leighton.
