Lupita Nyong’o hit the red carpet for the London premiere of her new thriller film today rocking an unexpected look.
While her “Us” co-star Winston Duke went for a purple suit, the Oscar-winning actress showed off a red dress and matching contact lenses. Nyong’o modeled a red plaid sequin-covered wrap-style gown courtesy of Attico paired with strappy gold metallic leather Aquazzura sandals. The plunging V-neck design, featuring long blouson sleeves, a black waist tie and a thigh-high slit, was originally priced at nearly $5,000. Now, the dress has dropped to $1,723.
Nyong’o’s golden Aquazzura Purist sandals are also available for purchase, retailing at $541. The 36-year-old “Black Panther” star completed her bold look with an assortment of sparkly jewelry and head-turning makeup.
