One day, years from now, we'll all be sitting around the dinner table asking, "do you remember where you were when Lupita Nyong'o wore that perfect Nairobi blue Prada dress?"

Call us fashion obsessed, but we feel this flawless red carpet run is just that significant a style moment in time. Let's not forget that this is the 12 Years a Slave star's very. first. movie. So not only has she never dressed for the onslaught of Oscar press; she's never walked a major red carpet!

It was almost impossible to reduce the list of a dozen plus looks to these eight greats, but between the green goddess by Dior, to the white hot column by Calvin Klein, these are the moments that stood out most in our minds.

Someday this list will include the top 100 times this Kenyan beauty killed it, but for now, we're impressed enough with her very first set of fashion first impressions.
