Kenyan Hollywood actress Lupita Nyong’o is not stepping down any time as the best dressed African Actress in Hollywood. The Oscar-winning actress, age 33, attended the BFI London Film Festival premiere of her new movie Queen of Katwe on Saturday the 8th of October 2016 and no doubt was once again the centre of attention.
The fashionista stepped onto the red carpet wearing a multi-coloured head wrap expertly paired with a matching sleeveless top, with tied spaghetti straps, giving her the opportunity to show off her amazing smooth skin and proud melanin. She added another striking touch to her stunning ensemble of choice with a pair of powder blue high-waisted trousers, which were cuffed in high turn-ups but still completely obscured her open-toe platform heels.
Earrings fell to just above her shoulders in a collection of increasing blue globes, framing her pretty face, which was made up with blue eyeliner and bold red lipstick. Aside from a dazzling ring, the Yale-educated beauty opted to forgo accessories, letting her head-turning outfit and glowing skin do all of the talking.
We love this look where co-star David Oyelowo joined her on the red carpet wearing a green three-piece suit.
