I have yet to see a photograph of Lupita Nyong'o that is anything short of utterly breathtaking, and her most recent is no exception. The latest Lancôme ad featuring Nyong'o has been released and it's the epitome of feminine glam, oozing elegance and class, as per usual for the actress.
Glamour's Woman of the Year, who became an advocate for Lancôme earlier this year, posed in a bright fuchsia dress to show off the make-up line's L'Absolu Rouge lipstick in Rouge Amour #160. The hue featured in the ad is one of Lancôme's six new shades inspired by the most beautiful and legendary roses in the world, and to incapsulate that, they've surrounded Nyong'o with several rose buds in shades of lilac, pink, and, of course, red.
The ad itself is captivating (and does actually make me want to buy that lipstick) , but more than her sheer beauty, all I keep thinking of is just how darn good she looks with those flowers. I mean, seriously. The girl can rock some florals. So here's a look back at all the times the Oscar winner posed with or wearing flowers, and looked a billion times prettier than a bouquet.
1. With Actual Live Flowers
I mean, she seriously nailed this ad.
2. Wearing Brights
No wonder she topped Glamour's list.
3. Light and Flirty
Her white-and-blue dress was a breath of fresh air.
4. In 3-D
Those floral appliqués are seriously glam.
5. Dark and Moody
Nyong'o took a darker approach to florals in her Carolina Herrera dress.
Her Gucci dress with floral-embellished neckline won the SAG red carpet.
