Lupita Nyong’o painted the town red in spicy heels from Nicholas Kirkwood at the Paris premiere of 12 Years a Slave. The actress was all smiles as she joined director Steve McQueen and co-star Chiwetel Ejiofor on the red carpet.
The Kenyan actress and filmmaker wore a sleeveless cocktail dress from Elie Saab, which features sequins, intricate embroidery, sheer panels, and beautiful red lace. Her gorgeous earrings from David Yurman complemented her outfit, and her sculpted pumps from Nicholas Kirkwood completed another stunning look from the stylish actress.

We couldn’t find Lupita’s exact pair of shoes from Nicholas Kirkwood that feature red leather and gold pin heels. However, we did find them in gorgeous red suede:
Lupita was also spotted wearing another pair of red heels at the 23rd Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards. She joined Rashida Jones and a bevy of other stars at the event. She made a stylish entrance in a belted black coat, which she later removed to reveal her strapless white frock from Lanvin. Her tea-length dress features a pretty bow accent, a grosgrain trim, and a full skirt. She completed her effortlessly elegant look with diamond earrings from Fred Leighton, an embellished clutch from Lanvin, dark cherry lips, and red satin pumps from Lanvin.
