Lupita Nyong’o is Hollywood's most steadfast beauty chameleon, each day yielding a new aspirational look. Her appearance at the 33rd National Equal Justice Awards Dinner in New York City last night was no exception. Arriving at the event in a white peplum coat dress by 2019 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund runner-up Danielle Frankel and matching point-toe pumps, the Kenyan-Mexican actress accented the elegant ensemble with a stunning cascade of sideswept braids and jewel-toned washes of color on her eyes and lips.
Nyong’o's winding plaits were embellished with silver metallic beads studded with crystals; the shading of shimmering deep violet pigment on her lids, plus a slick of vinyl burgundy lip color on the mouth, perfectly played up the shine of her soigné hair statement. Given that it’s the most wonderful time of the year to embrace decadent hair and bold makeup, Nyong’o’s latest striking combination is well worth bookmarking for some strategic shimmer on the holiday party circuit.
