Lupita Nyong'o Attends 'Eclipsed' Opening In Ballerina-Chic Dress — PHOTOS
Ballerinas are totally #trending in the fashion world right now. With the recent popularity of principal dancer and Under Armour campaign star Misty Copeland, more and more celebrities are dressing like ballerinas, perhaps in hopes of emulating their delicate and graceful style. Lupita Nyong'o wore a tulle dress to the opening of her new play Eclipse, putting a unique twist on the now-ubiquitous ballerina trend.
The 32-year-old donned a red embroidered midi gown with a sheer black tulle overlay and lots of sparkle. The gorgeous dress featured a low-cut neckline with an A-line skirt that definitely read "ballerina" without being too over-the-top. The non-traditional color combination gave the ensemble an edgy gothic glam feel that was definitely unique.
The actress paired the cool piece with bright red point toe stilettos that featured a criss-cross design reminiscent of that on ballet slippers. She flaunted a pretty slicked back up-do with a a thick halo braid at the crown that looked insanely chic and elegant. She completed the look with a bold reddish purple pout that tied the whole ensemble together.
The actress is notorious for her unique fashion-forward style, so it's no surprise she took ballet-dressing to the next level.
