The star sure knows how to take a risk, but was her flapper-esque dress a total hit or a major miss? VOTE and let us know what you think of her bold move on the red carpet.
Lupita Nyong’o is without a doubt America’s sweetheart and she quickly became a fixture on the red carpet, (especially during awards season!) — but did the Academy Award-winning actress take too big of a risk when she showed up at the 2014 Met Ball wearing a flapper dress designed by Prada? Was her flapper frock a fierce move or a total fashion flop?
Lupita Nyong’o’s Met Gala Dress:
Hot off a perfect run on the red carpet for awards season, the 31-year-old actress attended the Costume Institute benefit in NYC on May 5 for the very first time, where the face of Miu Miu stood out thanks to her custom-made Prada ensemble. Her embellished dress was all about the details, and the flapper design reminded us of The Great Gatsby!
Wearing a simple, short brown dress with a halter neckline underneath, the main focus was on the netted green overlay and matching green shoes — the talented actress is the only one who could pull off this look! Lupita accessorized with a matching green headband and added a hint of sparkle with beautiful, studded earrings and a diamond ring. The stunner also matched her green feathers to her green shoes. Leaving her makeup natural and fresh-faced, Lupita added a hint of color to both of her lips and cheeks to add some contouring to her face.
Lupita Nyong’o’s Met Ball Moment:
The Met Ball is all about showing off your personal style, but this look is without a doubt the riskiest of the night. If anyone can pull off this look it is definitely Lupita. While this is not our favorite look on the talented actress, she’s still flawless in our opinion and can pull off even the most challenging of looks!
What do YOU think? Do you love or loathe Lupita’s Met Ball look?
