SAG Awards Fashion Standout

By  |  0 Comments

Lupita Nyong’o is quickly becoming the “it girl” of the 2014 award season. At the Golden Globes, she stunned in a red Ralph Lauren dress, and she stole our fashion-hearts again as the SAG Awards Fashion Standout. The Kenyan actress glowed in a turquoise Gucci gown, featuring floral-embroidered straps with gold details. She accessorized with gold jewelry from Fred Leighton and a gold clutch. After winning the red carpet, her streak continued inside the ceremony when she took home the award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in 12 Years a Slave. Congrats to our new favorite fashionista!
