Lupita Nyong’o Looks Like A Total Queen In This Elie Saab Getup
This is a proper bow-down style moment…
She might be starring in a new Marvel film, but Lupita Nyong’o’s wardrobe was the real superhero of Comic Con.
The Kenyan actress, who’s taking on the part of Nakia in the upcoming Black Panther movie, wowed the crowds in a jungle-print cami and wide-leg trousers.
The head-turning number came courtesy of Lebanese designer Elie Saab, aka the King of Couture.
Here’s a look at the tropically-infused outfit in full:
It’s like a more daytime-appropriate remake of Jennifer Lopez’s famous Versace number she wore to the Grammys.
And the way the lightweight kimono-style jacket is nonchalantly shrugged off one shoulder? Too cool.
The Academy Award winner donned the printed three-piece ensemble at the San Diego event, where never-seen-before footage from Black Panther (which is due to be released next year) was unveiled at a panel.
This wasn’t the first time Saab has dressed Nyong’o either – the Damour-born designer kitted out the star in this lavender gown for a premiere last year.
The two also teamed up for this look at the SAG Awards in 2015:
Talk about a match made in fashion heaven. Here’s hoping for more Saab-Nyong’o collaborations at awards shows to come…
