Look of the Day: Lupita Nyong'o

Oscar winner and style icon Lupita Nyong'o can do no wrong on the fashion front. Whether she’s wearing a ballgown or debuting an off-duty look, the actress always looks unique, polished and ridiculously beautiful. Her most recent appearance, at Bally’s flagship store opening in London, was yet another great opportunity for a memorable look, and Lupita did not disappoint. She wore head-to-toe Bally, fresh off the Spring 2015 runway, combining a wine-colored coat with a burnt orange crop top, forest green belt, pale pink pleated skirt and a bag and shoes to match. We can always count on Lupita for a perfect style palette of unexpected colors, like these jewel-hued tones.
