Thirty-one year old Lupita Nyong’o was born to Kenyan parents in Mexico. She began her acting career in 2009 and quickly made a name and reputation for herself. She especially made an impression during last year’s Academy Awards ceremony. Not only did she look like royalty in her powder blue Prada gown which left her at the top of the Best Dressed lists from the event. Not only did she stun in her gorgeous gown but she also took home an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for the film “12 Years a Slave”. Last Sunday night Lupita made an appearance on the red carpet of this year’s 87th Annual Oscar Award Ceremony. Lupita was there as a presenter, giving J.K. Simmons the award for Best Supporting Actor in the film Whiplash. Not only did she do a fantastic job presenting, she also dazzled in her dress, much like last year.
Lupita Nyong’o was absolutely stunning in her custom Calvin Klein dress by designer Francisco Costa, which was adorned with 6,000 pearls. The gown was white and floor-length, with pearls lined up and down the gown. The dress had halter-like straps which left a sexy-opened back look that fit nicely with Lupita’s flawless skin and toned frame. The pearls on the gown consisted of five different sizes of pearls and was hand sewn for her.
Lupita complimented the gorgeous gown with minimal make-up that left her skin shimmering and glowing. She accented her dress with diamond teardrop shaped earrings and rings. The diamond jewelry sparkled while her pearl gown shimmered, making her look almost ethereal.
While Lupita’s gown looked quite heavy and a little uncomfortable she insisted that it was anything but, calling it easy to move in and quite comfortable. The pearl dress left quite an impression on many watching the awards this year.
