After making us blush at the EE British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) nominees party in London, Lupita Nyong’o made us green with envy at a DuJour magazine party hosted by Jason Binn in New York City. The exclusive bash was held to celebrate Hollywood’s newest style darling who graced the cover of the magazine’s latest issue.

Lupita showed off her love for bold colors and prints once again as she stepped out in a gorgeous ivy silk blend frock in different shades of green from Peter Pilotto’s Resort 2014 collection. Her dress stops at mid-length and features a crew neck, cap sleeves, and a beautiful floral print. She styled it with jewels from Jamie Wolf and Joan Hornig, a gold box clutch from Michael Nelson, and a pair of pumps from Manolo Blahnik.

The Kenyan actress was also spotted wearing the same ensemble as she arrived at the Ed Sullivan Theater for a guest appearance on Late Show with David Letterman. She covered up with a stylish coat, which she kept unbuttoned to reveal her fabulous frock from Peter Pilotto.

Lupita wore the “BB” pumps in mint from Manolo Blahnik, which feature pointy toes, self-covered heels, and shiny patent leather in a gorgeous green hue. These shoes are also available in sorbet peach patent leather, orange suede, floral print, beige snakeskin, and several other styles at Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and Nordstrom.
After her guest stint on Late Show with David Letterman, the 12 Years a Slave star was seen leaving the Ed Sullivan Theater in a sexy all-black ensemble. Lupita transitioned seamlessly from bright colors and bold prints to sassy and classy in head-to-toe black, which proved that she can do no wrong in the style department.
The 30-year-old actress and filmmaker wore a strapless dress with a leather basque from J. Mendel. She styled it with a chic black coat, stunning earrings from Graziela Gems, red lips, and a pair of slingback pumps from Christian Louboutin.
