Lupita Nyong’o Looks Like an Oscars Statue in Gold Floral Prada Dress & Platforms at Academy Awards 2022

Lupita Nyong’o shows up to the Oscars red carpet in a bold way. The “12 Years a Slave” star attended the 94th Academy Awards in Los Angeles today, where she made a statement in a striking ensemble.

The actress went with a gold sequined gown from Prada that featured pink floral appliques, also made out of eye-catching sequins, strewn all over the garment. The piece also had 3/4 sleeves for a modern finish, and it had matching fringe along the skirt of the dress that added movement to her train.

As for accessories, she went with two big diamond-covered rings and threw her black tresses up into a braided bun that added a unifying element to her outfit.

Although her shoes got covered by her hemline, in one shot on the red carpet, as she moved on the carpet she revealed a bright pink platform heel that aligned with her floral theme.
