This just came to mind. It’s gonna be a tight fashion battle between Naomie Harris and Lupita Nyong’o at the 2014 Oscars. So far, both ladies have had a great red carpet run during the awards season. I believe Naomie is in the lead because all her looks have been flawless, while Lupita has had a miss here and there. But still, it’s gonna be a tight one at the Oscars.
Both actresses attended the 2014 NAACP Image Awards on Saturday in Pasadena, CA, and both of their looks are worthy of your attention. Naomie wore a beautiful Valentino dress; the best look at the event by far. She was breathtaking. I can’t stop admiring this delicate and effortless look.
Hair and makeup were flawless.
Lupita wore a version of that celebrity-favorite Givenchy dress. Kim Kardashian and Imogen Pots have both stepped out in different versions of the dress. Unlike her predecessors, Lupita opted for a covered-up version of the dress and had the cut-outs underlined. Good call. However, this is not her best look. Despite the orange color looking lovely against her skin, this is the actress’ worst look so far.
The matchy-matchy styling and the two-sided hair style were also a miss. But at least, Lupita won Best Supporting Actress for her role in ‘12 Years a Slave‘.
Also wearing an unflattering orange dress was Oprah. I don’t have the ID on her dress, but it’s not looking good.
Worst dressed title however, goes to Regina King. Her dress is Michael Costello and I can’t get over how unflattering the bodice looks. Just can’t.
Tika Sumpter was super close to nailing it. She wore a beautiful Johanna Johnson gown, which she unfortunately styled with black pumps.
Brandy Norwood was a favorite of mine on this occasion. I love her Jean Fares Couture gown and the beautiful hair and makeup. I was surprised to learn that Brandy was nominated for her supporting role in ‘The Game‘.
Kerry Washington showed off her baby bump in a navy and peach Thakoon dress. Kerry’s maternity style hasn’t been great so far and she’s not getting any praises from fashion critics here either. I did love her hairstyle.
Nicole Beharie showed off her fit figure in Saint Laurent. Like the dress, wished she would’ve put more effort into the hair style.
Who was best dressed at the 2014 NAACP Image Awards? How about worst dressed?
