Lupita Nyong’o’s Oscar Dress — Custom Calvin Klein Creation:
If there’s one thing we can always expect from Lupita, it’s that she’s going to wear the unexpected! The actress stole our hearts on the red carpet, and she’s given us another look we won’t forget in her custom Calvin Klein gown — it’s made of 6,000 pearls!
The fit and flare bodice is so flattering on her frame, and nobody could pull off a dress made almost entirely of pearl embellishments like this beauty. The halter neckline was jaw-dropping and gorgeous, as she showed just enough skin with the keyhole center and the strappy back of the gown.
She accessorized simply with Chopard diamond earrings and we’re glad that she didn’t overdo the look with the bling — the dress was practically jewelry on its own! She finished off the look with Nicholas Kirkwood shoes.
In comparison to Lupita’s 2014 Oscars dress, which was pale blue with a plunging neckline and full, flowing skirt, this is a totally different silhouette and we love it!
