Lupita Nyong’o Brightens Up a Dreary NYC Day With This Vibrant Look

Lupita Nyong’o turned heads as she made her way to an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Monday. With help from makeup artist Nick Barose and stylist Micaela Erlanger, the “Us” star stunned in a red-hot look from head to toe for the occasion.

The 36-year-old Yale School of Drama alumna stepped out wearing a vibrant red coat from Mackage over a mid-length sweater dress featuring red, purple and white stripes by celebrated Nepalese-American designer, Prabal Gurung.

Nyong’o further accessorized her chic ensemble by adding a white box bag, round retro sunglasses and chunky red hoop earrings.
