Lupita Nyong'o hasn't been on the award circuit long, but she has quickly learned a few key tricks of the trade — not least of which is having a good party dress to change into after the ceremony ends and the real fun begins. But when your Oscars dress was as good as hers, where do you even begin?
Fittingly, she swapped her Academy Award-winning look, a lovely pastel Prada number, for a similar but more dance-floor-friendly variation. And what's more perfect for getting down than beaded fringe? The actress stuck to her nostalgic Nairobi-inspired palette but mixed things up with a slimmer silhouette. Best of all: this less-full skirt gave her matching satin heels a cameo. We love Lupita just the way she is, but are you happy that she went changing?
