Ever since Lupita Nyong'o first made a red carpet appearance up to now, there's barely been a moment when we have been disappointed by her fashion picks. Like always, the Queen of Katwe actress has brought together a look that's not just sexy but also has an elegant touch to it. As we all know, she is starring in Mira Nair's Queen Of Katwe, that is being screened at 41st Toronto International Film Festival. On the premiere event of the same, the 33 year old actress wore an outfit that just took every paparazzi's attention! The film is based on a true story, about a young girl from the streets of rural Uganda whose world takes a drastic change when she is introduced to the game of chess. Played by newcomer Madina Nalwanga, Lupita is the mother of Madina in the film.

At the premiere of the film's screening at TIFF, we saw Nyong'o pull off a House of Herrera gown with an impeccable amount of panache. The dramatic royal blue headgear that she teamed with her outfit was touche! We hear that she accessorized the ensemble with over $600,000 worth of jewelry from Tiffany & Co. The actress also coloured her lip red and while the look itself was too classy, the red lips was sort of unnecessary. Instead a lighter pink shade would've been better. We gotta admit, the piece of accessory made a lasting impact on us. Gorgeous is a word too short to justify how beautiful Lupitya looked. Present at the event were the cast i.e. Golden Globe nominee David Oyelowo and Madina Nalwanga, they were joined by director Mira Nair as well.
It is always a pleasure to see a Mira Nair film, despite the amount of controversy it undergoes. Just by the name of the director itself, we are convinced that it's gonna be one inspirational self exploring journey to witness. Her project, Queen Of Katwe also focuses on a very strong subject i.e. a poverty stricken child's immense talents in the game of chess and how she manages to hit the nail on the coffin thanks to the support she receives from her close ones.
