Ever since Lupita Nyong’o first appeared on the awards circuit early this year, her name has become synonymous with “best dressed.” The 31-year-old Mexican-Kenyan actress’ red carpet ensembles have consistently been a series of sartorial grand slams. So it came as no surprise that, upon arriving at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night, the 12 Years a Slave star wowed us again—this time in a printed, multi-colored Chanel cap-sleeve dress.
But it was when Nyong’o was called upon to present the award for “Best On-Screen Transformation” that she really made a splash. When she took the stage, she donned the same dress, plus one thick-rimmed, statement-making pair of specs (perhaps to better read the teleprompter?), which instantly set the Twitterverse abuzz. Everyone shared the same thought: Who makes those glasses?
The answer (of course) is Prada. The 14QV style (above, right) from the luxe Italian brand’s Journal collection has a vintage-inspired cat-eye shape that strikes the perfect balance between classic and bold. We especially love how the zigzag detail on the dress picks up the black color of the frames. Want to channel Nyong’o’s geek-chic look? Head to lenscrafters.com and scoop them up for $335.
