Lupita Nyong'o's Met Gala Gown Gets the Risk-Taker Award

Posted on

Lupita Nyong’o always turns heads on the red carpet, but for her latest high-fashion outing, the star may have left a few spectators scratching their heads at the same time.

PEOPLE’s Most Beautiful Woman made a major impact in a custom emerald-green Prada net dress featuring a crazy number of embellishments — glass beads, crystals, cascading feathers and chandelier drops. She teamed the look with gem-studded green suede sandals and a coordinating clutch, also Prada.

And she topped the look with a vintage Cartier necklace worn as a headpiece and oodles of other vintage Cartier jewels. (She might be the most embellished star at the ball.) What do you think of Nyong’os look? Are you a fan? Did she totally miss the boat?
