All About Lupita Nyong’o’s GrassHopping Green Cannes Film Festival Gown!

Twirl, Lupita, twirl!

The 2015 Cannes Film Festival kicked off today and stars flew into France to walk one of the world’s most prestigious and most watched red carpets. Of course Academy Award winning actress Lupita Nyong’o was in the number.

Our girl made an appearance at the La Tête Haute premiere in summer regality! The Gucci “grasshopper green” (her description) work of art was nothing less than major against Nyong’o’s cocoa skin. The near navel-plunging silk gown elegantly draped to the floor and was accented with floral adornments on the shoulder and clinched waist.

The 12 Years a Slave actress’ hair was swept in a high-bun, fastened with a jewel band. Makeup was Cannes yacht-party ready with natural blushes of bronze finished with a soft plum lip.

This gif shows Nyong’o giving her signature twirl in the gown’s sprouting silhouette that’s becoming her go-to for red carpets.

The Cannes Film Festival is just getting started and we can’t wait to see what our faves wear next! Check out Luptia’s other twirl-worthy gowns and let us know what you think!
