Lupita Nyong’o graced the red carpet for the 2020 Critics’ Choice Awards.
The Black Panther actress looked stunning as she wore a gown by Michael Kors. In the photos that she posted on her personal Instagram page, Nyong’o is beaming at the camera as the dress shows off her petite body. The top half of the gown seems to be made of leather, while the bottom half of the gown flows down past the Oscar winner’s feet. The actress’ skin is glowing in the photo, as her toned arms are left exposed.
In the second photo, Nyong’o flashed her accessories that she decided to wear for the night. She is seen wearing multiple bracelets on her left arm. She is also rocking multiple rings on her fingers on the same side of her body. Nyong’o is also carrying a dark blue clutch with a gold lining. The handheld bag resembles a diamond and pairs well with Nyong’o’s gold belt that fit snugly on her waist.
The third photo from the Us actress highlights Nyong’o’s stunning makeup look. The actress has foundation on her already seemingly flawless skin in the close-up shot. Nyong’o also has on brown eyeshadow on her upper eyelids and added a gold shadow just below her brow bone. The actress also has on black eyeliner for the night, which has a subtle wing at the corner of her eyes. The actress then decided to finish off her look with a shiny, red lipstick. Nyong’o also showed off her hairstyle for the evening, which was a high, puff bun that was dressed with wire hair accessories. Celebrity hairstylist Vernon Francois is credited for bringing the look to life.
