There’s no doubt in our minds that Lupita Nyong’o has been the best dressed at every award show or even she has attended this season. She always looks amazing and wears monochrome especially well and she knows it. Her monochromatic looks are usually simple yet elegant and we’ve got a few tips on how to achieve her looks for less.


Lupita is all about monochrome so choose a nude dress color that suits your skin the best. Look to celebrities that share your same skin color and undertones to see what shade fits you best. A classic black heel or nude will work well but for an exact carbon copy look, stick to black. Accessories should be kept at a minimum with a simple snakeskin clutch in the taupe or nude shade of your liking.

You can find these items at stores like Zara and TopShop for less than the designers Lupita wore. For more on how to achieve this look for less, tune in to the video.
