Get ready to be blown away by Lupita Nyong’o’s exceptional styling prowess. We’ve all seen what the Mexican-Kenyan actress can dole out on the red carpet. She practically became a household name and a fashion darling overnight, what with her laudable sartorial decisions.
What most of us aren’t aware of is that the 32-year-old is also a slayer off the red carpet. In fact, we’re head-over-heels in love with her outfits en route to her Broadway play, Eclipsed.

One of her recent looks is this Parisian-esque ensemble featuring a gorgeous red and black gingham coat that she teamed up with a little black dress, a pair of sheer tights and a pair of booties. The look was elevated by her striped scarf and fedora hat.

The day before, Lupita once again channelled the Parisian vibe in an outfit featuring a green double-breasted coat worn over a black sweater and a pair of black pants. The same pair of boots was present in this look. She kicked up the style meter further by adding a grey fedora hat and a red doctor’s bag.
