ActressÂ Lupita Nyongâ€™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.Â
Eschewing tradition, the 36-year-old paid fashionable homage to Jordan Peeleâ€™s newly-released horror, â€˜Usâ€™, 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 â€“ another covetable accessory on our lust list.

But as if that wasnâ€™t enough to secure her position as one of this yearâ€™s greatest style muses , Nyongâ€™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 itâ€™s not the first time Nyongâ€™o has sought inspiration from the silver screen, as she pulled off a series of warrior-inspired looks to promote 2018â€™s buzziest film, â€˜Black Pantherâ€™.
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 Nyongâ€™o scored more points with the London fash pack.
The actressâ€™ latest flick, â€˜Usâ€™, follows the tale of a family who head to aÂ beach house to spend time with close friends but their holiday makes a surprise turn, when a group of strangers â€“Â who are also their doppelgÃ¤ngers â€“ show up on the doorstep.
Nyongâ€™o â€“ who plays the role of motherÂ Adelaide andÂ Adelaideâ€™sÂ doppelgÃ¤nger Red â€“Â described the film as â€œa nightmare from from Jordan Peeleâ€™s mindâ€.
â€˜Usâ€™ is showing in cinemas across the UK now.
