The Event: The La Tete Haute (Standing Tall) premiere during the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday, where the actress was joined by Julianne Moore, Karlie Kloss and Natalie Portman on the carpet.

Why We Dig: Anytime Nyong'o is expected on a red carpet, you can bet we're anxiously waiting to see what she's going to wear. As was the case with Wednesday's Cannes carpet when the Oscar winner stepped out in a twirl-worthy silhouette that left us in awe. Nyong'o looked as elegant as ever, pairing her gown with a gold headband and Chopard drop earrings and rings. Embracing the outfit's bright hue, the actress completed her head-turning look with a bright magenta lip. The film fest may have just started, but we think it's safe to say Nyong'o already tops the event's best-dressed list. Well done, Lupita.
