Lupita Nyong’o On ‘Jimmy Fallon': Beautiful Or Too Bold?

The actress switched up her look — but it was for better or worse? Did the red carpet darling strike out on this occasion? VOTE.

Lupita Nyong’o made a guest appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Jan. 22, and while we can’t get enough of her looks on the red carpet during awards season we don’t know how we feel about this bold outfit.

Lupita Nyong’o’s ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ Outfit — Too Loud Or Lovely?

The 31-year-old actress has been front and center in our fashion spotlight. We recently saw her on the red carpet at the Producer’s Guild Awards, wearing a gorgeous Stella McCartney frock — but it looks like her style slipped off the top of our list! On this occasion the star wore a Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2014 sleeveless cowl neck crop top and high-waisted, wide-leg trousers. While we think the deep, plum purple hue looked amazing on her flawless skin, Lupita’s long, beautiful legs got lost in the wide-legged trousers! The pants did not flatter her figure — in fact, they hid it and seemed unflattering.

In addition to that the position of the straps made her shoulders look quite broad. We think it would have looked way better with a statement necklace around her neck to complete the look. This jumpsuit-inspired look has been very popular on the red carpet recently, but her separates weren’t a flattering take on the trend.  

Lupita, however, must have loved the look — in fact, she headed out to the Knicks game after her appearance while sporting the same exact get-up!

Do you think Lupita got the outfit right? Love it or loathe it?

Dumb article, She looks stunning as usual. What was she supposed to wear, a full length gown to go on Fallon’s show? I love the jumpsuit and purple is my favorite color and she looks wonderful in it. Just because you wouldn’t wear it doesn’t mean she shouldn’t. I am sure there were plenty of things she has worn that you love that you still couldn’t pull off as well as her. So please lets not go there.

What’s the point of this article? She’s beautiful and talented, and can pull off anything she wears. I don’t see why this is a bad look at all. She looks absolutely stunning.

And I’m not alone. Why don’t you look at the poll results? 95% like her look. There’s your answer.

She looks stunning like she always does, and no she is not competing with Jennifer Lawrence, she already won that competition she was just robbed of the award.

I agree, the writer of this article is and idiot and so is this site for even thinking it was okay to post. You must have had nothing else to write so you tried to get hits off of going in on Lupita. Sorry, it just makes you look stupid. And I hope you read this so you don’t make this kind of elementary mistake again. Okay, I’m done.

What a silly writer? This is not a bad thing to wear. The writer forgot to notice that this color is good for her and she chose it aside from the obvious fact that she is slim and very beautiful. For the writer to even criticize on how the straps makes her shoulder quite broad is the silliest thing to say about her.

The bottomline, it is just a HL INTERN writing this – what are we supposed to expect.
