Lupita Nyong’o wears red contact lenses at ‘Us’ premiere


Actress Lupita Nyong’o is not one to put a sartorial foot wrong and last night, the Hollywood heavyweight gave a lesson in the art of dramatic red carpet dressing. 

Eschewing tradition, the 36-year-old paid fashionable homage to Jordan Peele’s newly-released horror, ‘Us’, in an aptly-hued red sequin dress by Attico at the London premiere.

To finish the vampy wrap-around number, she sported a pair of metallic Aquazurra heels – another covetable accessory on our lust list.

But as if that wasn’t enough to secure her position as one of this year’s greatest style muses , Nyong’o threw a surprising pair of spooky lenses into the mix.

Yes, in a fitting tribute to onscreen character, Red, the actress frightened paps with a smokey eye, wicked lips and bloodshot eyes.

Though it’s not the first time Nyong’o has sought inspiration from the silver screen, as she pulled off a series of warrior-inspired looks to promote 2018’s buzziest film, ‘Black Panther’.

At the Los Angeles premiere back in January 2018, the actress wore a heavily embellished gown by Atelier Versace on the red carpet.

Courtesy of its sweeping regal chiffon skirt and boundary-pushing harness, the look soon garnered a spot as one of the best celebrity ensembles of the year.

While a seriously high thigh-split Balmain dress worked wonders across the pond, as Nyong’o scored more points with the London fash pack.

The actress’ latest flick, ‘Us’, follows the tale of a family who head to a beach house to spend time with close friends but their holiday makes a surprise turn, when a group of strangers – who are also their doppelgängers – show up on the doorstep.

Nyong’o – who plays the role of mother Adelaide and Adelaide’s doppelgänger Red – described the film as “a nightmare from from Jordan Peele’s mind”.

‘Us’ is showing in cinemas across the UK now.
