10. Lupita Nyongo
Red Carpet Dresses 2015 – Lupita Nyong’o, last year’s Oscar winner for “12 years of slavery” and the darling of the fashion press, she wore a dress from Calvin Klein, adorned with pearls. “There is no pressure. Now I can be all dressed up and enjoy the show,” she said.
Why just wear pearl jewelry when you can sport a gown made entirely of pearls?
That seems to be what Lupita Nyong’o asked herself tonight for the 2015 Oscars: Just when we thought the actress couldn’t be any more flawless, she steps out in an all-over pearl confection that was custom-designed for her by Calvin Klein Collection’s Francisco Costa.
The figure-hugging frock features intricate white beading from top to bottom, a halter neckline and sexy keyhole cut-out (just the kind of avant-garde meets implicitly simple look we expect from Lupita)
Really—who hasn’t dreamed of dripping in this many pearls? (We sure have.) The dress features more than 6,000 to be precise.
(The better question might be: How heavy is it?!) Lupita accessorized her look with pearl-encrusted Nicholas Kirkwood heels (natch) and a mirrored box clutch from Calvin Klein Collection.
