Lupita Nyong’o was a golden girl in Oscar de la Renta at the Breakthrough Prize

7th Annual Breakthrough Prize – the 'Oscars of Science'

Here are some photos from this weekend’s 7th Annual Breakthrough Prize, aka the ‘Oscars of Science’. The Oscars of Science have become a bigger deal in recent years, with more and more celebrities coming out to celebrate science, math, physics and more. Lupita Nyong’o was a big get for this year’s show – I’ve always liked the fact that Lupita doesn’t go to EVERY awards show. She doesn’t turn up at the opening of an envelope. I can’t even remember the last time I saw her at an awards show, which is probably why I was so surprised to see her hair this length – it’s so long! Lupita wore a gold Oscar de la Renta, and there are gold accents (ribbons?) in her hair too. She looks amazing!

Pierce Brosnan and his wife Keely. Do you think she owns that ruby necklace, or did she borrow it? Hm. Pierce was the host of the event.

Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan. They make a nice couple, but he should be spending this time trying to explain how he sold out democracy to the highest bidder. I’d also like to hear him explain why so many Nazis end up on his platform.

Thandie Newton, looking badass. I don’t have an ID for her dress, but I like it.

I don’t know why Lana del Rey was there, or why she looked like she just wandered onto the red carpet from her family’s horse stables, but there you go.

This is one of the first times we’ve seen Rachel McAdams since she gave birth to her mysterious baby in April of this year. We still don’t know much about the baby, just FYI. I haven’t even heard a name. Rachel wore Rami Kadi. She looks great.

    Zuckerberg is so alien looking. He just gives me the creeps and always has.

    Lupita looks amazing!! I feel like Thandie can carry off dresses a lot of others couldn’t. I like Rachel’s dress in theory, but something about the bodice is off.

    If dark brown skin is doing gold…LUPITA IS THE WAY TO GO!!!!! And I LOVE what she did what her micro-braids…have done the same thang myself over the years!

    Salma Hayek take note, THIS is how to stun in a gold dress. Man she looks beautiful, I love the gold in her hair.

  5. lucy2 says:

    Every time I see a photo of Lupita, I’m once again stunned by how beautiful she is.
    Everyone looks nice here, except I don’t care for Lana’s outfit.

  6. Smee says:

    Thandie is wearing Schiaparelli.

    Lupita looks fantastic in gold.

    Lupita looks gorgeous!!

    Seriously, what’s with all the ugly red carpet dresses this week? I like the gold color on Lupita but the dress swallows her petite frame. The rest are just horrible dresses and Lana Del Ray looks like a fool. The best part is that stunning ruby necklace!

  9. Cojii says:

    Lupita is a flawless goddess.

    With all the money the Zuckerbergs have and this is what Priscilla decided to go with for an outfit? Girl please get a stylist!

      I felt her legs and shoes look like she ran out to get a coffee, very early. Anyway, I agree with you totally.

    Lupita is so pretty. She has the most beautiful skin. Love her hair in this pic.
    The dress seems to be a bit overwhelming her, IMO but, pretty.

    Since Mrs. Pierce Brosnan (Keely) is the wife of a multi-millionaire who got paid James Bond $$, I hope she does own that necklace. (Wanna bet the jewelers either loaned it to her OR offered a huge discount so she’d wear it and they raked in the PR) Also, she can really carry off that hunk of hardware, she would look great in a big old Emerald necklace too, IMO.
    Personally I’d like to see more excellent jewelry every red carpet. I know I’ll never have gems like those, I’m a look-y loo when the big gems are out.
    Elizabeth Taylor always had fabulous jewels….more please!

    Full disclosure.. I love Pierce Brosnan, since his Remington Steel days. And Keely and he seem damn solid, especially for a Hollywood marriage. (Do ya self a favor and Google PB in his younger days…so very good looking)
