Style Icon Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita Nyong’o is the princess of unconventional outfits!
Lupita Nyong’o is known for her film role in Steve McQueen’s drama 12 Years a Slave, her Acadamy Award for Best Supporting Actress and she is one of the most beautiful women on earth according to People Magazine. If she’s not shooting a film or posing as a model for Lancôme and other major brands, she likes to stirs up the fashion world. Time has passed since every Hollywood beauty wore a long classical evening gown paired with long hair. Whereas other actresses choose to only wear mainstream and rather plain outfits, Lupita shows courage by frequently choosing creative, individual and unconventional looks. She’s the princess* of unconventional outfits.

The following outfits are anything but plain and boring:

Lupita Nyong'o
Met Gala
I am not really convinced about this last look, a green-brown Prada dress. Your supposed to create a crazy look at Met Gala. But maybe Lupita took it too far by wearing this creation. She reminds me somehow of a fish caught in a net. – Still, Lupita somehow manages to look decent.
And one has to give her credit for that.
My assumption: She could probably also wear a paper bag and still look beautiful. (picture source Getty Images)

I hope you enjoyed my selection of Lupita’s most unconventional looks.
I am looking forward to hear your opinion about Lupita’s outfits. Are they hot – or rather not?

Yours sincerely,

* I guess nobody can top Lady Gaga, the queen of unconventional outfits, so “princess”.

Kelly M. is a long-haired “bon vivant”. Her mother named her after the famous Kelly bag from Hermès. Kelly likes to spend her sunny days in her garden near the pool. She certainly enjoys the bright side of life, most of all eating and all other activities that are beneficial for her body and soul. As Oscar Wilde said: “Looking good and dressing well is a necessity, having a purpose in life is not.”

    I believe Lupita looks stunning in all of her outfits even in the one she wore to the Met Gala. Nice blog by the way. I will certainly come back.
