Lupita Nyong’o returned to the limelight in fine form since gracing us with her fabulous presence during the awards season. She scored major style points at the Fresh Faces party hosted by Marie Claire in celebration of the magazine’s May cover, which stars five of Hollywood’s favorite darlings — Emilia Clarke, Elizabeth Olsen, Kate Mara, Elle Fanning, and Miss Nyong’o herself.
The Kenyan actress looked lovely in her sleeveless cocktail dress adorned with pretty blue flowers from Giambattista Valli’s fall 2013 couture collection. She rocked a curly hairstyle, which added a bit of edge to her girly and spring-perfect ensemble. Lupita finished her look with glossy pink lips, jewels from Graziela Gems, and a pair of metallic leather pumps from Christian Louboutin.

The Academy Award winner’s footwear choices have been rather controversial, but style experts have let them slide because, let’s face it, she basically looks good in anything and she carries herself with such grace and aplomb. This time, Lupita wore the Christian Louboutin “Fifi” pumps, which received mixed reviews from fashion critics. Many of them thought that she should have worn strappy heels instead of court shoes to the event as they would have been far more complementary to her pretty outfit.
The Fifi pumps feature round toes, metallic leather, stiletto heels, and the brand’s signature red leather soles. If you disagree with the fashion critics and would like your very own pair of these Louboutin shoes, they are available in tricolor snakeskin at Barneys:

Kate wore a sleeveless tuxedo dress in a bright red hue from Christian Dior, which features satin lapels and a low neckline. She styled it with rose gold heels from Rupert Sanderson and a gold embellished clutch from Dolce & Gabbana.
Elle, on the other hand, wore a red silk slip dress with bronze straps, a low neckline, and an asymmetrical hem. She finished off her look with a bronze clutch from Brian Atwood and the popular Christian Louboutin “So Kate” pumps in bronze metallic leather.
