The Look: A draped, two-slit lavender gown with black and pastel striped accents across the bodice, styled with a matching lavender headwrap.
The Wearer: Fashion darling Lupita Nyong’o, styled by THR power stylist Micaela Erlanger. The actress, who stars in Queen of Katwe, is also Vogue’s October cover star.
The Event: The Los Angeles premiere of Disney’s Queen of Katwe at the El Capitan Theater on Tuesday evening. Nyong’o was joined on the carpet by her stylish co-star David Oyelowo, who himself was looking dapper as ever in a burgundy three-piece suit with a marigold geometric patterned vest and matching pocket square.
Why It’s Important: Ladies and gentlemen, she’s back. After a series of rather boring moves on the red carpet over the past year, the 33-year-old has slowly but surely been getting her mojo back with on-point looks at TIFF (Carolina Herrera) and the Tonys (Jason Wu). Her style comeback culminated with her gorgeous lavender gown from Tuesday’s premiere — the cherry on top of a winning fashion streak. Reminiscent of the powder blue Prada gown the actress wore to accept her best-supporting-actress Oscar in 2014, the gown and matching headwrap, styled with drop earrings and matching eye shadow, are at once elegant as well as playful — the perfect combination for a Disney film premiere.
