    Lupita Nyong'o is a name you must know — and not just for her critically acclaimed debut role in Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave . Sure, critics across the board are already labeling her as this year's best supporting actress (how's that for a confidence boost?), but the girl's also got killer style, which we've seen at premiere after premiere. So, in honor of our newest girl crush, we're doling out a few (fashion) accolades of our own.

    For starters, Nyong'o and her sartorial skill are impossible to miss, with the actress opting for a vibrant palette that covers the full color spectrum. On the red carpet, the up-and-coming starlet sticks to dresses with structured shapes, allowing the bold hues to play off of her ridiculously good-looking features. So beautiful.

Lastly, designers, nail this Yale grad down quick, because we're calling it now: She'll be the girl to dress.
