One thing's for sure, Lupita Nyong'o will likely never forget last night's Oscar Awards—and for good reason!

The 31-year-old breakout star took home an Oscar award all her own, and looked every bit the princess throughout the evening.

We gave her two enthusiastic thumbs up for her gorgeous ice blue Prada gown accessorized with a sparkling headband. 

We asked her stylist Micaela Erlanger for the scoop on the final selection and what went into the fitting. 

"Last night's look was a collaboration, and our main goal was to create a look completely representative of Lupita. The custom Prada gown, accented by gold Fred Leighton jewelry and diamond headband all came together beautifully. This was the moment we've been working towards all award season and I think we nailed it," she told us exclusively.

Indeed she did!

We loved everything about the actress' dreamy look and couldn't be happier for the beautiful star!
