What I Learned from Lupita Nyong'o's Red Carpet Looks

Lupita Nyong'oLupita Nyong’o is a breakout star on and off the red carpet.  Her looks are both versatile, and always elegant. She has been making all the right moves as far as I’m concerned.  Here are a few things we can learn from her red carpet looks:

Short Hair IS Versatile

Throughout this award season, Lupita Nyong’o switched up her short natural hair — she has played it up with subtle changes in shape and texture — proving you don’t have to feel restrict by your hair length.

Embrace the Full Color Palette

This Oscar® Winner has brilliantly incorporated the full color palette in both her fashion and makeup. She’s not afraid to elegantly combine colors on the opposite spectrum. For example, at the 58th Academy Awards® she paired a light metallic blue eyeshadow with a sheer berry lip.

Short Natural Hair IS Red Carpet Ready

A few years ago, Viola Davis made the bold decision of wearing a short natural cut to the 2012 Oscars®. Some critics, Wendy Williams for one, argued that this look just wasn’t formal, enough. For the record, I never agreed with this statement, but Ms. Nyong’o is certainly setting the record straight. Her hair is FLAWLESS!

Accessories are a Gamechanger

Everyone was swooning over Lupita’s headband bling she wore at the Oscars®. A headband is a simple but perfect addition for an already glamorous look.  It completely changed up Nyong’o’s look. She reminded me of Cinderalla; she was a real life Disney princess.
