Did Lupita Nyong'o Just Bring Back a Classic '90s Hairstyle?

Jan 20 2014 - 8:00am

We're deep into award season, and Lupita Nyong'o has nailed every red carpet so far [1], including at the SAG Awards. The actress, who scooped up the award for outstanding performance by a female actor in a supporting role for 12 Years a Slave, started her look off with a '90s-era flattop that was very Will Smith [2] in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Hairstylist Ted Gibson had teased that her hair would be bigger tonight [3], and he didn't disappoint!

Her eye makeup was a medley of blues, which was inspired by her beautiful dress. "Her dress is this gorgeous green color that has all of these beautiful flowers across the chest, so I wanted to do something with the eyes that reminded me of butterflies on flowers," celebrity makeup artist Nick Barose said. He used a blue, a purple, and a yellow on her eyes, starting by smudging the blue shade of Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow in Fascination [4] ($59) from the inner corner of Lupita's eye to the center. Next, he layered on Chanel Ombré Essentielle Soft Touch Eye Shadow in Amethyst [5] ($29) from the outer corner toward the center, but the two colors did not meet. He finished by applying Chanel Le Crayon Khol Intense Eye Pencil in Peche Cuivré [6] ($28), an intense yellow, into the center and diffused the colors together.

As for her nails, Deborah Lippmann [7] applied one coat of Swagga Like Us [8] ($19) before painting on Chain Reaction from the Rock This Town set [9] ($42).
