Is Lupita Nyong'o The Actress To Dress This Season?

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. And, even though awards season may be several months away, we're excited to see how Lupita's punchy style will translate to formal attire. Lastly, designers, nail this Yale grad down quick, because we're calling it now: She'll be the girl to dress.
