She’s Back! Fashion It Girl Lupita Nyong’o at Paris Fashion Week



Lupita-Nyong'o-Paris-Fashion-Week-July-2015-BellaNaija0001Paris Fashion Week is in full swing and apart from the amazing showcases from Chanel, Dior, Versace and more designers so far, it is always an opportunity to see some stars step out in style.

Last year Lupita Nyong’o and Rihanna dominated the shows with their chic looks and it looks like Lupita is back for a winning streak.

A few days ago she made her first appearance for PFW at the Dior Couture fashion show.

Click here if you missed it.

Yesterday she attended the Lancome 80th anniversary party and today she made another appearance at the Maison Margiela presentation.

The Hollywood actress looked demure in a form-fitting black sheer panel dress with capped sleeves and a sheer crocheted panel over her cleavage. The below-the-knee dress also had a slight flare at the hem.

She kept things understated as far as her accessories went, choosing a pair of black and silver platform heels and a Maison Margiela flap over black clutch with a simple purple colour block strip.

    Her dress is on point as usual however, I’m not sure about her parted hair. Lupita’s hair stylists sometimes don’t seem to know how to handle her hair.

    The colour black does nothing for her. I like her shiny dark face. a shiny face hardly looks good but she manages it well here.

      Lmaoo! It’s hard to believe that u can type such very intelligent comments and then turn around and type this really funny, somewhat crazy comments. Like whenever I see ur comments I want to be irritated but I end up laffing really hard. Girl, you are bipolar but not the manic-depressive kind. Pls don’t stop.

    How I wish a Nigerian makeup artist would mesmerise her face……very bland makeup. Sighs

      naija woman ehn…tufia!! so till you Lupita looks like an arochukwu masquerade is when u will like her makeup?? puhleease, sit down gworl!!!

      her make up is cool, she is was probably going for an all black/ nude face look. let her be biko. Black is beautiful and we don’t need to rock makeup like whihte women biko. Know ur skin tone and wat makes u feel beautiful!!!!

    Dear Lupita, I Love you and I want you to know that I’m so proud of you and all you’ve achieved in such a short time. However, I think you need to be reminded that you’re now a public figure and it’s just wrong for you to keep coming out looking like you weren’t prepared.
    1)You need a Hairstylist that’s very creative to add life and colour to your seemingly boring hairstyles
    2)You need a pro makeup artist who’s very good at handling women of colour of all skin tones(I’ve never been impressed with any of your makeovers)
    3)And your nails? Let me not go there today….
    Overall, black doesn’t flatter your skin tone, Any good stylist should know this.

    Ps;This Look was a flop for me#Ok bye

    She’s not ATTRACTIVE, period. Not trying to be mean but just stating the obvious, The media are trying soo hard to push the dark skin agenda. Plus that black dress on black, hideous

      Beauty is in the eye of the beholder e.t.c. Her and attractive Halle Berry both have one Oscar…………….So………………..

      I personally don’t find her my cup of tea attractiveness wise, but reducing her achievements to a “media agenda” is wrong. The woman clearly lets has some talent let us judge her on that and leave this debate of her attractiveness alone.

      I won’t even go into the whole how Women are their own worst enemies truth here,

    All I see is Black! She’s a beauty, the dress is nice but this appearance is all too dull.

    Why are you worrying about her hair?????? As you can clearly see she has natural 4c short hair. And at that stage there isn’t much to do with it. She doesn’t want to put in braids or anything. Can you let her be?

    She s gaining weight which might not be too good for her career in Hollywood!

    Ms Lupita is an A-lister (from one movie) a feat so many Tyler Perry actors cannot achieve (I mean even taraji just entered B-list even after her Oscar nom), secondly what you don’t realize that she is putting in work and getting coints by attending this shows (being a fashion girl herself). She looks amazing btw.

    P.S before y’al come for me for my taraji comment if Empire gets nominated for an Emmy or her character gets nominated for an Emmy (and/or wins) she will be an A-lister.

    Let’s not embellish. She had her okay looking days but here, she looks below average &. matronly. I get fuckn tired of people that over compliment. Abeg let it rest, Lupita Nyongo is as basic as you can get

    First of all,lupita is many of us can rock a bare shiny face and ur natural hair and still look this good.this woman isnt afraid to experiment and that dress suit her just fine.I dont think she needs boobs cos that ll make it provocative and the attention ll be on the boobs not the dress.all dose of you commending the socalled Nigeria makeup artist dat pack serious amount of foundation and hideous looking isnt basic one fine art project biko……Lupita is fineeeee damn.
