Lupita Nyong’o first grabbed our attention with her show-stopping style during last year’s awards show circuit, which culminated in an Oscar win for “12 Years a Slave.” 

A year later, nothing’s changed – she’s still a standout style star!

In 2015 Lupita brought us even more gorgeous looks, defined by vibrant colours and exciting patterns. We’re already excited wondering what she has in store for 2016!

Wearing Calvin Klein Collection, Lupita was draped in 6,000 white pearls to walk the most famous red carpet on the planet.  

The gown, valued at $150,000, was mysteriously stolen from Nyong’o’s hotel room two days after the Oscars, but thankfully later returned.
