Lupita Nyong'o & David Oyelowo at the 'Queen of Katwe' LA Premiere

Yesterday evening(September 20th) Lupita Nyong'o and David Oyelowo hit the red carpet at the premiere of Queen of Katwe at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, CA.

Lupita Nyong'o looked beautiful hit the red carpet in a ELIE SAAB RESORT 2017 lavender split detail pleated floor length halter dress with a triangle cut-out bodice, an open-back and contrasting black, pink, cobalt blue, yellow & lavender stripe straps & waistband. Lupita is most likely paying homage to her hometown Kenya with her look and she nailed it. She always wears color perfectly and this was no different for me. Like her TIFF, this is a memorable look. GRAZIELA GEMS jewelry, NEIL RODGERS sandals and magenta lips completed her look. Did Lupita win you over with this look as well?

David Oyelowo wore a DOLCE & GABBANA suit with a custom KUTULA FOR AFRICANA vedt & pocket square which is paying homage to his Nigerian roots. Love the color on him and the contrasting printed vest & pocket square kept it interested. However the pants look a bit too tight but a great look nonetheless. LOUIS LEEMAN loafers topped offed his look.

  1. Mmmmm... I am not feeling her look. I love the headpiece by itself but I don't like the dress neither its colour for her. Also, those stripes seem out of place. I appreciate they are referencing their ethnic roots nevertheless. It is refreshing to see something different from the princesses, the Park Av socialite or the crazy cat lady on the red carpet.

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE her look. I love the fact that she is wearing head wraps.David looks nice too.

  3. Loving everything about this! One of my favorite red carpet moments of the year.
