Lupita Nyong'o Is Ridiculously Radiant In A Lavender Gown

Lavender is her color. But then, what color isn't?

It’s been a little while since Lupita Nyong’o was a regular on the red carpet, so you may have forgotten whether or not she’s good at them.

Consider this your reminder.

Nyong’o attended the premiere of her new film “Queen of Katwe” wearing a lavender Ellie Saab gown, Neil J. Rodgers shoes and a custom head wrap, flashing her perfect smile and reminding us why any red carpet is 10 times better with her.

Hello, gorgeous.
Hello, gorgeous.

Nyong’o was joined by fellow sparkly human David Oyelowo, who stars alongside her in the film. For his part, he looked downright dapper in a perfectly fitted crimson suit.

Delightful duo!
Delightful duo!

The premiere comes just days after Nyong’o was revealed as Vogue’s Oct. 2016 cover star, much to the delight of fans and Nyong’o herself:

I have a secret that I can finally share… Guess who came to see me back home in Kenya?!
