Let’s just take a minute to breathe and digest the fact that Lupita Nyong’o has been killing it on the red carpet of late.
Nyong’o has been Hollywood’s darling since her debut in 2013, and has amazed us with her red carpet looks every single time. For the release of her new film US, however, Lupita has shown a boldness out of the ordinary. Her satirical choices on the film’s press tour has us all shook as she decided to channel the film’s newly released villain.
At the London premiere, Nyong’o sashayed down the red carpet in vampy black lips contrasting with demonic red lenses that were a kind of extension of filmmaker Jordan Peele's new psychological thriller. Who else can pull off vampire chic? NOBODY, that's who.
At the New York premiere, she stuck with her character’s name, 'Red', as she donned red eyebrows and a dark red lip.
At the SXSW premiere, Lupita upped the red-carpet game as she complemented her all-white look with a red stripe on her eyes. Makeup artist Nick Barose described the look as a tribute to the strong women of the 1980s, such as Annie Lennox and Grace Jones.
We’re going to go sip some hot tea while we stan the goddess of the red carpet.
