WHO WORE WHAT?.....86th Annual Academy Awards: Lupita Nyong'o in Custom Prada

Lupita Nyong'o in Custom Prada

THE Fashion Girl of the Moment, "12 Years a Slave" star and Academy Award Best Supporting Actress nominee Lupita Nyong'o looked resplendent and Goddess-like in a Goddess Gown made just for her by the Italian fashion house Prada. The Custom Prada gown in baby blue color (Lupita said the color reminded her of Nairobi so we can call this "Nairobi Blue"). It featured tiny hand-gathers, a plunging deep-v neckline in the front AND in the back as well and a waist-cinching waistband and very full gathered skirt.

I predicted that Lupita might wear a fuller ball gown shape--and this beautiful dress falls under this category. At first sight, I would have bet money that it was from Elie Saab Haute Couture but alas, it was not. This Custom Prada gown also has a definite Madame Grès vibe...

I also love her simple headband and earrings; just gorgeous.
