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?
