Lupita Nyong’o was my favorite of the night! She wore the type of design I had predicted for her so imagine my excitement when I saw these pictures!
Last night, with a couple of hours left until the show, I saw this post on tumblr which I found very amusing because it was so relevant to me and how I was feeling about Lupita – and apparently to some other 10,000 people. I wonder how the team behind Lupita’s red carpet appearances must have felt with the pressure of living up to everybody’s expectations. And they did!

That’s how I pictured her: in a feminine deep v neck dress. And my dream came true! It wasn’t Elie Saab, it was Prada, as expected. The actress kept faithful to a minimalist style opting for very subtle details and accessories. Enjoy the pictures! (more…)
