Style Crush: Lupita Nyong'o

If you watched the Golden Globes red carpet, I'm sure your jaw dropped once you saw the stunning Lupita Nyong'o. If E's Fashion Police! doesn't name her best dressed of the night, I'm calling a conspiracy. Girlfriend took my breath away when she graced us with her presence on the red carpet. This girl is a flawless queen and pretty much the reason why I've decided to never wear black again.

What I love about Lupita's style is her bold, unapologetic use of color and print. The girl is fearless and knows what looks good on her gorgeous skin tone. She's definitely my ultimate style inspiration at the moment. I thought I was being a little more mature by gravitating towards darker, neutral colors these past few months. I wasn't being mature, I was being pretty boring to be honest. Every morning, I'm going to think to myself WWLW: What Would Lupita Wear?

  2. I love her stuff too! The way she rocks dresses is just spot on.

  3. I have yet to see '12 Years A Slave' but with Tumblr being obsessed with her, I have now become the same! She looked absolutely STUNNING last night, and now looking at this round-up it's even more evident. She does bold colors really well. :D She'd look gorgeous in the print dress.
