Lupita Nyong’o Masters the Red Carpet

The 12 Years a Slave actress pulls off a tricky look.

Who: Lupita Nyong’o

Where: A luncheon for 12 Years a Slave at the 21 Club in New York.

When: Tuesday, January 7th

What: An orange silk Dior cocktail dress and white Sophia Webster pumps.

Why: So many things about this look are tricky—the tangerine color, the hem length, purple tones on the eyes AND lips—and yet Nyong’o makes it seem like the most obvious and brilliant combination.
