Yesterday I kicked off my wishes for the Star Wars: The Last Jedi promo tour with a bunch of wishes for Daisy Ridley to wear for international premieres of the film. Today I have a bunch of wishes for style star Lupita Nyong’o to wear for international premieres as well. This whole list might fall on deaf ears after all Lupita only attended the LA and London premieres of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.I am really praying that Lupita Nyong’o will join her cast of co-stars at premieres around the world just because I really want to see her deliver a whole slew of amazing moments on the red carpets. Kicking off my wishes I went to this edgy black Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2016 Couture jumpsuit which features a feathered bodice and army green cummerbund waist. Lupita dazzled in an Alexandre Vauthier gown during the last tour and I think this would be a really great moment for Lupita to wear for a premiere in a place like Mexico City. A teased out afro, an army green smokey eye, red lip, and a pair of black Aquazzura ‘Oh Lala’ sandals all would make sure that this look is majorly glamorous. When it came to looks that I want to see Lupita wearing during this promo tour I went to a much different set of looks than I did for Daisy. I went to edgier more ‘alien’ styles for Lupita because she is a total fashionista. When I saw this Céline Spring 2018 RTW long sleeve abstract printed top and white fringed skirt walk the runway I was fully in love with how it moved on the runway. We don’t often see Céline worn on the red carpet,but I think that Lupita would definitely take this dress and work the hell out of it. I think that with a tight hairstyle, metallic gold lined eyes, a red lip, and a pair of white Chloe Gosselin ‘Narcissus’ sandals all would elevate this look even more.
Following the bold print of that Céline dress I went to bold color from Christian Dior. I was not a fan of the latest Dior collection, but there are some pieces that on the right person could be really good. On the Christian Dior Spring 2018 RTW runway Maria Grazia Chiuri sent 11 versions of this electric blue playsuit paired under a skirt slit to the waist. We have seen Izabel Goulart wearing the same version of this blue dress with the mirrored playsuit in rose pink, but I don’t think that will stop the placement of other versions on the red carpet. Lupita looks beautiful in blue and I think that this dress definitely fits the space age theme of a Star Wars promo tour. I think that this dress with a cobalt blue eye and a pair of metallic electric blue Saint Laurent ‘Anja’ pumps all would make this a great look for Lupita.
Lupita does color on the red carpet better than most and when its paired with avant garde designs most are afraid to wear it is usually magic. I loved the color, print, and volume in the Mary Katrantzou Spring 2018 RTW collection and I think that if anyone can sell the difficult to wear looks in this collection to me on a red carpet then it will be Lupita. I think that if she wore this multicolored Mary Katrantzou Spring 2018 RTW ‘Blossom’ embroidered dress which features a mock neck, cinched waist with elastic drawstring, and a racer back that I just might fall on my face dead from how good it would be, especially if she wore it with a pair of almost matching Sophia Webster ‘Chiara’ sandals.
My final wish is probably my most out there in the fact that Lupita has never worn a Nicolas Jebran design on the red carpet before. Honestly when it comes to the stars that we have seen wearing the Lebanese designer on the red carpet have been music stars like Beyonce, Demi Lovato, Fergie, Ciara, and Iggy Azalea. Again going with that more ‘Alien’ chic idea that I picked all of these looks I think that this Nicolas Jebran Fall 2017 Couture multi colored midi gown which features abstracted beaded embroidery, a plunging neckline,and a full skirt fits right into this tour for me. A smokey eye, nude lip, and a pair of red Paul Andrew ‘Zenadia’ pumps all would add to add to a major moment for Lupita.
Which of these looks would you like to see Lupita bring to life on a red carpet?
