Yay or Nay to Lupita Nyong’o’s Futuristic Outfit at the London Premiere of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”




Lupita Nyong’o definitely took a fashion risk for the London Premiere of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” held at Leicester Square on Wednesday evening (December 16) in London, England.

To promote the new installment of the space movie Lupita went with an edgy outfit which featured a quirky long-sleeved peplum dress with a metallic mesh skirt. There was a sheer overlay embellished with a fringed trim.

    She looks Ok, but i believe she would have looked better without the blue lipstick.

    did u hear? they said lupita’s role in star wars (which was a very small role), was cut down because the director of the movie wasnt impressed with her acting.

    according to what I heard, lupita is barely in the movie.

      I heard it was a waka pass role, so much hype about her being in the movie and soo little appearance, someone once said she should do more acting and less mag covers. If she doesn’t take up an interesting and challenging role people will forget why she won an Oscar in the first place.

    One day, i will understand the hype around this young lady. Neither her acting nor her highly publicized fashion sense work for me.

    She looks unappealing & so unattractive. She’s not cute, her body is cool but her overall sense of style is just awful. She needs to revamp her image, YUCK

    She looks mighty fine. Her custom fits the futuristic theme of the movie she’s repping. I personally did not expect her to walk the red carpet in one of bellanaija wedding special fish outfit. She don transend local level tinz and has sky rocketed to international lime light. As a fellow African I am mighty proud of the way shes able to hold her own. Highlighting her natural African beauty. Notting pretentious bout her. And yes she does make little appearances in some of the movies she’s in but at least she’s on an international stage. Sky’s her limit. I pray for such international recognition for my daughters . Her parentsmust be really proud. And they should they have brought up a strong African woman. Not some shaking ass video vixen, .
