You Better Werk!: Lupita Nyong’o in Elie Saab at the “Queen of Katwe” LA Premiere

lupitanyongopremieredisneyqueenkatwef-wq7bt1a48lLupita Nyong’o has been one of my favorites since she first showed up on the red carpet at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival. Lupita has always embraced her African roots having her first Oscar gown, custom made for her by Prada, in a blue inspired by Nairobi. Over the course of the promo tour of Queen of Katwe Lupita has been wearing high fashion looks with custom headdresses made to match. Last night at the LA premiere of Queen of Katwe in a stunning custom Elie Saab lavender gown which features multi-colored ribbon detailing on the straps and waist. I was blown away by how effortless this look came across while still being high fashion and glamorous. I know it has been a while since I have put up one of these posts but this is one of those looks that I am definitely going to consider for Best Dressed of September and maybe even Best Dressed of the Year.
