Lupita Nyong'o in Giambattista Valli Fall 2014 Haute Couture
Actress and "red carpet all-star" Lupita Nyong'o wore this lilac and ivory strapless gown from Giambattista Valli Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2014. And I have to say...this was a MISS for me. Since Lupita has been so PERFECT and on-point on the red carpet this past year that well, she was bound to have a "Ooopsie" moment. And so here it is, in my opinion. Now, about the gown, it's a completely handmade gown with hand-sewn fathered "petals" at the bustier and a very full silk chiffon bottom part. the gown looked great on the runway and flowed like a DREAM as the model worked the catwalk. Unfortunately, on Lupita it is sorta CLUNKY and fell flat and almost heavy. Dare I say, I feel as if she needed a crinoline or tulle petticoat underneath to give it some structure and life.
Lift it up Lupita: It's almost as if she KNEW that it needed something (her hand!) to give it "life". I have to say that I wasn't a fan of this dress on her. On a good note: Loved her hair and makeup. What did you guys think of this dress on Lupita? Yay or Nay?
