In case you’re totally out of touch with the world, rising star Lupita Nyong’o was just named the World’s Most Beautiful Person by People magazine. She’s been quickly rising in stardom since her starring role in 12 Years a Slave earned her a Best Supporting Actress Oscar, so this new honor is totally not a surprise.
Lupita has walked down 65 red carpets during the promotion of her film and subsequent events, which has given her plenty of time to prove how beautiful she really is (as if she needed 65 times… we were in love the first minute we saw her). Here are some of her best looks that show why no one even came close to topping her beautiful year.
1. Academy Awards
Perhaps her most well-known look, this flowing pale-blue Prada gown from the Oscars makes her look like a fairy princess. The dress is paired with Fred Leighton to make her shine.
2. Non-Stop Premiere
Yowza! This copper Lanvin accordion-pleated dress with side ruffle looks absolutely great with her skin tone. And the matching Sergio Rossi heels totally complete the look.
3. Vanity Fair Oscars After Party
Lupita was having a good night! After winning her Oscar, she changed into this white Miu Miu dress with mint green fringe. And don’t forget the Fred Leighton diamond headband, which proves the theory that she is a goddess.
4. MTV Movie Awards
Way to spice it up! This colorful Chanel dress is heavily embellished to bring out Lupita’s wild side. The bright blue Casadei pumps give the look even more fun!
5. 12 Years a Slave Paris Premiere
Red is the color of our love for you, Lupita. Did we mention it’s a color you look great in? This sequined Elie Saab Resort dress fits like a glove and goes perfectly with the Nicholas Kirkwood heels.
6. Hollywood Film Awards
This girl can pull off any color. The lovely marigold yellow of this J. Mendel dress makes her look like a blooming flower. The matching metallic Judith Leiber clutch gives the look some sparkle.
7. BAFTA Awards
Long and flowing, this green Christian Dior Couture strapless gown looks fabulous with the accentuating golden belt. Two matching Ana Khouri golden cuffs tie everything together.
8. Toronto International Film Festival HFPA/InStyle Party
Who says you always have to wear a dress on the red carpet? This sweetheart-neckline Veronica Beard jumpsuit proves otherwise. It’s matched with the perfect set of polka-dot Paul Andrew heels.
9. Producers Guild Awards
This soft cutout shapes of this one-shoulder Stella McCartney dress work great with Lupita’s slim form. Strappy sandals also created by the same designer give the look a summery feel.
10. SAG Awards
Blue is such a beautiful color on Lupita! This turquoise Gucci dress with a glorious floral neckline in the front and back make her look like a fairy straight out of a storybook.
11. BAFTA L.A. Britannia Awards
Light cream and dark black battle it out in this two-tone Lanvin Resort dress. The asymmetrical shoulder with a tie shows off Lupita’s toned chest.
12. Governors Awards
Sharp and sophisticated, this black and white Prabal Gurung dress makes Lupita look like a modern woman. We love her purple lipstick – really, who else could pull that off?
13. Golden Globes
Red really is her color. This off-the-shoulder red silk Ralph Lauren dress includes one key feature we love – a cape! Not only is Lupita stunning, but she’s ready to save the world.
14. Gotham Independent Film Awards
Lupita is mixing sweet and feminine with sexy in this look. The cream Lanvin dress includes a shiny ribbon belt as well as an oversized bow at the strapless neckline.
15. Critics’ Choice Movie Awards
Alright Lupita, we get it, enough already. You’re stunning in whatever you wear, including this custom white Calvin Klein Collection dress. The bandeau top with cutouts accentuates her perfect figure.
