Lupita Nyong’o is a famous fashion risk-taker, and the Black Panther star’s latest look is a prime example of her fearless sense of style. For an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to promote the film, Nyong’o chose a sleek ensemble from Balmain. The glossy overcoat with Matrix vibes layered over matching pants and a striped sequin top from Oliver Rouseting’s Spring 2018collection had Nyong’o looking the part of futuristic heroine. Adding on black shades, gold hoop earrings and a pair of stiletto sandals, she succeeded in turning the greenroom into her own personal runway.
Post-show, Nyong’o took to Instagram to share footage of herself emerging from her car and strutting into Disney’s El Capitan Theater in slo-mo, making it clear that she was feeling her outfit. Given its eye-catching texture and unique details, it’s easy to see why, but it’s the confident attitude Nyong’o brought to the look that elevated it into a major fashion moment.
