When we heard Lupita Nyong'o was going to be presenting the award for Womenswear Designer of the Year at the 2014 CFDA awards this evening, our first thought was: What will she wear?
And we have to admit—this striped getup she ended up stepping out in was not first on our prediction list.
The Oscar winner's striped culottes and top combo is giving us flashes of the Met Ball. Although we've long buried the memory, it was less than a month ago that Lupita stepped out on the red carpet in a green flapper-inspired ensemble during the Costume Institute Gala.
Once again Lupita has chosen to buck the trends and go with something bold, patterned and totally different from the sophisticated gowns she had on heavy rotation during the beginning of award season this year.
