Lupita Nyong'o Just Proved Her Princess Moment Is Far From Over

When Lupita Nyong'o twirled her powder-blue Prada dress on the Oscars red carpet, we thought, "This is it. This is her princess moment, and we'll never forget it." But then Lupita showed up to Cannes in this kelly-green pleated custom Gucci design and proved that when it comes to wearing gorgeous gowns, she's no one-hit wonder.

From the floral appliqués scattered around the plunging neckline to the way the layers of chiffon spin around as Lupita twirls, this dress just made us all fall in love. Of course, it's not just the design that speaks to us. Lupita styled her look with diamond drop Chopard earrings embellished with pink gemstones, a sparkling headband, and fuchsia lipstick that highlights the sparkling bouquets on her gown.

Needless to say, you have to see this breathtaking ensemble from all angles. Read on to take it in, and then check out even more designs on the red carpet at Cannes that put stars in our eyes.


Lupita took to Instagram to kick off her Cannes evening in #GrasshopperGreen, thanking Gucci for the custom design and Chopard for the lovely jewels.
