Lupita Nyong?o Discusses Her Style Inspirations And Red Carpet Fashion

She collects bushel after bushel of the fluffy fiber thats a staple of fashion, but like most field slaves, is clothed in tattered dresses and isnt even afforded a bar of soap. So its been extra surprising to witness Lupita Nyongo , the then-unknown actress who rivets as Patsey, strutting her stuff on various red carpets this awards seasona jarring about-face similar to Jennifer Lawrences transformation from a squirrel-chopping mountain gal in Winters Bone to budding fashion icon back in 2010. RELATED: Style Icon: The Lupita Nyongo Lookbook (Photos) Getty With all due respect to Lawrence, her primary competition in the Best Supporting Actress Oscar race, Nyongo has been crowned the de facto red carpet winner this awards season for her sharp fashion sense. For her efforts, shes been spotted sitting front row at New York Fashion Week, graced the cover of New York Magazines Spring Fashion issue, and has fashion houses like Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney begging her to wear their designer gowns on Oscar night. Until all this, I hadnt been a student of the fashion industry as a formal industry, Nyongo told The Daily Beast.

Some people are lucky enough to treat themselves occasionally to a bit of high fashion, but that really is not the point of featuring fashion in a newspaper. You see, the difference between fashion coverage in a newspaper and a catalogue is that a newspaper is not telling you to buy the clothes. It is simply showing them. It is no more telling you to buy them than it is telling you to buy the latest medium short hairstyles iPhone when it covers various Apple launches. It often seems to me that when readers express outrage at high-end clothes being featured in a newspaper (or supplement magazine) what they actually feel is attacked. They think the newspaper is suggesting that they buy the 2,000 Prada coat or the 1,500 Saint Laurent handbag and they think the paper has forgotten its roots and is now only interested in wealthy readers. Dear readers, let me assure you this simply is not the case.

Milan Fashion Week: Marni Seized by Nomadic Spirit

Eva Herzigova and Monica Bellucci were on hand for the fairy tale collection, set in a magical forest of knotty olive trees. MISSONI PASTELS The Missoni woman is free and relaxed, comfortable enough to wear oversized men's jackets over soft, form-fitting dresses, easy sportswear or swinging skirt. The collection is for "a free-spirited woman," designer Angela Missoni said. She wants to be comfortable with masculine outerwear like parkas, a hunting jacket or gilet, but the "the silhouette underneath is close to the body," Missoni said. The knit-work was bold and graphic, rather than the traditional tight Missoni zig-zag, and the colors were soothing pastels contrasted by flashes of turquoise, mustard and orange.
