Style Icon: Lupita Nyong'o

Award-winning actress, Yale School of Drama grad, newest Miu Miu 'face' for Spring 2014 and a self-pronounced gamer-lady (Final Fantasy 8 lover!) Lupita Nyong'o is pretty much the coolest girl in the world right now. With award season in full swing, we have been fortunate to see the beautiful Lupita in a wide array of eye-catching dresses. Fearless of bright hues, she has inspired us to be color-lovers for the rest of this ice cold winter. Now with the Academy Awards arriving soon, we are sure all eyes will be on Lupita and what she wears on that red carpet. We can't hardly wait!

This yellow J Mendel gown is certainly glowing and Lupita's makeup is often color-coordinated to her fancy frocks (but doesn't look as tacky as when certain persons would match light purple eyeshadow to light purple babydoll tops in high school... we plead the fifth).

But color us jelly, as Lupita can somehow pull off purple eyeshadow and magenta lips! We might just admire this makeup look from afar but it is so enchanting. 

It is harder to find pictures of Lupita in casual outfits but we hope to see more of her more every day style post-Awards season. We could definitely see ourselves wearing either of the outfits above.

We love the reinvention of stripes in this Peter Pilotto outfit Lupita dons.

We love to see a great pastel number, and this dress doesn't disappoint with its futuristic-looking cap sleeves and heart-shaped chest cut-out. 

Lover of a crop-top? Makes our hearts stop! We have recently been dabbling in larger earring as per our New Year's Resolutions and we would love channel Lupita and her hoops. 

Lupita wearing the Mary Katrantzou Babelona dress with two of our celeb crushes Michelle Doherty a.k.a. Lady Mary Crawley from Downton Abbey and Kit Harrington a.k.a. Jon Snow from Game of Thrones (Winter Spring is coming!). When we found this picture a little fangirl got her wings. 

Lastly, we see Lupita in a Calvin Klein gown that is certainly channeling some Fifth Element chic. Indeed, her frocks make us want to sing out our own Diva arias in admiration!
