Lupita Nyong’o Rocks Fiery-Red Contact Lenses That Match Her Dress With Gold Heels at ‘Us’ Premiere

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.
