We had no clue how Lupita Nyong'o planned on topping the extravagant red Ralph Lauren gown she wore to last year's Golden Globes Awards. But the 31-year-old actress clearly has this red carpet thing all figured out.

Nyong'o made our mouths drop when she showed up at the 2015 Golden Globes in a violet and white Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown and Chopard earrings. The floral-embellished bodice took over the 31-year-old's small frame. But she managed to bring a bit of balance to her look with her blown-out hairdo and plum lip color.

What a stunner!
