Lupita Nyong’o was the red carpet darling of the 2014 awards season. She looked flawless at every single event, and found herself on countless “best dressed” lists, dominating the competition. Her gowns all had simple silhouettes, were bold in color, and she frequently finished her look with a bright lipstick.
Her perfect fashions were thanks to the expert eye of celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger, who is also responsible for dressing Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery, Raising Hope’s Martha Plimpton, and Winona Ryder. Her style choices often reflect the whimsy of fashion. For Lupita, she definitely wanted a daring and playful style.
Micaela believes that Lupita’s caped Ralph Lauren gown was her most striking look. She describes it as “the perfect dress, on the perfect girl, for the perfect moment”. And indeed it was one of the most talked about gowns of the season.
Her talent is definitely one we’ll be keeping our eye on.
