Lupita Nyong’o fumbled at the Super Bowl of fashion.
The actress, who became a global icon after her Oscar win this year for “12 Years a Slave,” went to Monday night’s annual Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute gala in a beaded flapper-esque Prada outfit.
“Lupita Nyong’o losing the perfect score she had been keeping until now,” tweeted Simple Style Guy.
E Online added, “Um…did Lupita Nyong’o just make her first fashion misstep?”
I miss Andre Leon Talley- at least his commentary was based on knowledge and understanding. I’m tired of writers who "know" Tthis was not a "fashion" event but the "Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute gala." celebrating the work of Charles James. It’s like going to a 70’s party in 80’s clothing… When we see the others simply regurgitating the same "accepted" looks at least one can appreciate Lupita’s attempt… the MET is a Musem… art, history, costume… outfits should be more on the creative, expressive side… Now if only the stylist understood the work of Charles james… Sad really. Just shows how much teh MET is needed!
The 1920’s would be too early (Charles james was born in 1906)… he would have come of age 1930’s-his death in 1970’s
