Drop the mic. Lupita Nyong'o made what can only be described as a grand entrance at the 2015 SAG Awards on Sunday, Jan. 25. Walking the red carpet outside L.A.'s Shrine Auditorium, the 12 Years a Slave star — and 2014 awards season darling — brought the drama in a stunning, swoon-worthy Elie Saab creation.

All eyes were on Nyong'o, 31, as she posed for pictures before the show, swishing and swirling the skirt of her multicolored gown. Designed as part of Elie Saab's Pre-Fall 2015 Ready-to-Wear collection, the envy-inspiring frock featured long sleeves, a plunging neckline, and a gorgeous floral print with eye-catching vertical black stripes.

The Oscar winner accessorized her look with Fred Leighton jewels, including black jade earrings, a 2.5-carat cushion-cut diamond and onyx ring, an Art Deco diamond and emerald ring, a 2-carat oval rose-cut diamond ring, and an ancient garnet cameo and diamond ring. Red satin Coco heels from Sophia Webster added an extra bit of flair.

As per usual, the Lancome spokeswoman, with an intricate braided updo, showed off her radiant skin and a bold beauty look created by celeb makeup artist Nick Barose. For the standout red lip, he prepped her pout with Kiehl's Scented Lip Balm #1 in Cranberry, then applied Lancome Le Crayon Lip Contour in Garnet and L'Absolu Rouge Lipcolor in Caprice.

Nyong'o was at the event to present the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Male Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries. She took the stage with Jared Leto, who sparked dating rumors last March when he referred to her as his "future ex-wife" in his acceptance speech at the Independent Spirit Awards.

Nyong'o attended the SAGs for the first time in 2014, when she won for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role.
