Lupita Nyong’o in Lanvin at the LA BAFTA Awards: stunning or style misstep?


Here are some photos from Saturday night’s BAFTA LA Britannia Jaguar Awards or whatever order those words are supposed to be in. This is a post devoted to the fashion of the awards! There were some good moments, surprisingly enough. I think some of the women have begun hording all of the gowns they want to wear for the awards season and they’re just itching to start rolling them out. Let’s begin with Lupita Nyong’o, who, let’s face it, is probably my favorite lady for this awards season. Last year my favorite go-to fashion It Girl was actually a boy – Eddie Redmayne. This year it’s Lupita. She wore this Lanvin gown which… well, it isn’t my favorite or anything, but I like it on Lupita. She’s not afraid to try different looks.


Naomie Harris in Vivienne Westwood Gold Label. I LOVE THIS. The design of the dress is classic Westwood, but usually this dress is done in solid colors. I love this bold graphic print, and Naomie just looks amazing.


Alice Eve is brunette now. Why does she turn up in all of the same places as Benedict Cumberbatch? Is Alice getting Cumberbanged? Please, NO.


Did Kelly Rowland think she was going to the real BAFTAs? Perhaps. Kelly wore Rani Zakhem Couture – total pageant dress, totally overkill. That being said, if she had worn this to an actual pageant, it would have been fabulous.


Suki Waterhouse (Bradley Cooper’s girlfriend?) in Emilia Wickstead. I associate Wickstead with Duchess Kate, quite honestly, so I didn’t know that Wickstead made these kinds of dresses. It’s pretty, feminine and it would have been better on an actual movie star.


I’m not sure why Salma Hayek made sure to pose with Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen, but there you go. Isla wore Burberry, Salma wore Gucci. Both were pretty boring looks.

    Lupita is a goddess in that dress and Naomi is a close second. The rest are pretty boring.

  2. LadySlippers says:

    It’s not my favourite but she’s stunning.

  3. Tish says:

    Lupita, love the dress!

    Wonder what Suki thought of Cumby’s tribute video where Zoe Saldana popped up. Haha.

  4. Gine says:

    Naomi looks amazing. Lupita is still gorgeous, but that dress isn’t my favorite. The rest are meh.

  5. Cecilia says:

    Do not like Lupita’s dress at all. Fail.

  6. Abby says:

    Salma looks trashy though the new hair colour suits her well. Isla looks meh…look at SBC with the ladies. He honestly stands out lol.

    Lupita looks lovely as usual but I don’t like the strand connecting the two sides…it looks a little messed up.

    Alice looks better as a brunette I think…also I actually dig her gown. She looks classy though the hair could have been better. Plus I love her jewels so much.

    Suki isn’t looking trashy for a change…shocking.

    Naomie looks stunning but are those shoes big for her or something. I see some gap between the heels and the shoe.

  7. Violeta says:

    Yeah no, here Naomie wins hands down!

  8. QQ says:

    WHOOOOO Lupita and Naomie… My gawd! I covet what they are wearing and whatever they are doing to their skin!!

  9. Ariadne says:

    That Dress has to Thank Lupita because it is weird on the top. But this girls is just Sweet and Classy. Naomi looks amazing too. I love Salma, but she is looking way too trashy in this dress. Why does Isla Fisher look like she is wearing a piece of white cloth?

  10. j.eyre says:

    I just think Naomie is so incredibly beautiful. I am captivated by her her face.

    My favorite dress is Alice Eve’s – I would wear that. I wouldn’t have accessorized with the B!tch Face but otherwise…

    I think Salma looks amazing.

    Naomie is gorgeous and any British person in a 50 mile radius was probably invited so hence the reason AE there and to present. The dark hair doesn’t suit her and it ages her about 15 years if not more. I just saw her mother in the paper today with dark hair she looks as old. Suki I have nothing to say…

  12. thinkaboutit says:

    What is up with Salma’s “highlights?” This woman has SO much money at her disposal and she always looks so clearance rack…

  13. Kiki says:

    Lupita is gorgeous as always but I don’t like the dress – but then again I almost always hate Lanvin. I met her at the London Film Festival and was just overwhelmed by how beautiful she is (and such a sweetheart, too).

    I really like Salma’s dress too.

  14. lucy2 says:

    Don’t love the dress but Lupita always looks stunning, and can make even a mediocre dress look good.
    I kind of love Salma’s dress.

  15. Naddie says:

    Naomie is the only gorgeous here. Lupita is beautiful, but not how people are saying, I usually like her dresses, but this one seems backwards.

  16. lenje says:

    I’m in the minority, but I actually like Lupita’s dress. It’s not for everyone, but Lupita makes it a standout and elegant. Girl is gorgeous.

    Kinda hate Kelly Rowland’s dress. Salma in my eyes is one of the few people who show her cleavages constantly and still look chic. This is not her best look, but it’s still fine IMO.

    Is Isla wearing pants? I don’t think it’s great on her — it looks like she’d trip over each time she steps on the pants’ hem.

  17. I Choose Me says:

    Not my favourite look on Lupita. I much prefer her in jewel tones but that face trumps everything. My girl Naomie Harris looks lovely as well.

  18. Grant says:

    Kelly Rowland’s body is incredible. Naomi looks flawless from head-to-toe. I like the gown on Lupita. Perhaps it could have been a bit more tailored in the bodice so as not to look so messy but it’s still a fun, flirty dress. Can’t wait to see what she wears on Oscar night.

  19. loveisthecoal says:

    That dress Lupita is wearing is just awful. Luckily she looks great in anything, but man. I just don’t care for it. Kelly looks great but yeah, she’s waaaay overdressed. I would love Suki’s dress without the little turtleneck piece-I just have an irrational dislike of anything resembling a turtleneck.

    I’m about to say something bitchy-I just don’t get Alice Eve. I don’t find her attractive or talented, and she seems to have the personality of a wet noodle. Why is she a thing? Different strokes for different folks, I guess. Sorry, I seem to be in a very bitchy mood today. :D

  20. Jessica says:

    Salma presented Sasha with his award, so it makes sense that she would pose with him and Isla.

  21. Danskins says:

    Lupita looks absolutely stunning in her dress! Kelly’s dress…hmmm, not so much. :(
