Swish, swish, zoom!
Lupita Nyong'o is a great many fabulous things: an Oscar-winning actress, a Lancome model, one of the big names in the upcoming Star Wars sequel, and—perhaps most fantastically of all—an expert dress twirler!
After epic literal turns at last year's SAGs, Academy Awards, and Met Gala, Nyong'o, 32, arrived at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday, May 13, spinning her little heart out in an emerald Gucci dress embellished with pleats and rhinestones on each shoulder.
Turns out, the Mexican-Kenyan beauty has sparked a trend. It seems as though all the celebs—especially models such as Kendall Jenner, because it takes a true pro!—are whirling around Cannes in their lovely gowns, putting the standard hand-on-the-hip pose to shame.

Leonardo DiCaprio's ex-lady love showed him what he was missing while flaunting those stems in a patterned Elie Saab dress at the amfAR Gala on May 21.
