Lupita Nyong’o graced her first Cannes Film Festival red carpet at the opening ceremony and premiere of Standing Tall in Cannes, France, on Wednesday.

The 32-year-old Oscar winner made us feel like it was 2014 Oscars all over again — she danced and twirled and in her jade-green custom Gucci gown as if she were reliving her princess moment from the past year.

Lupita highlighted her every move and sway with a swish of her dress’s soft pleated chiffon fabric. She complimented the blush flower appliques on her plunging neckline with a swipe of fuchsia pink color on her lips.

We only got a glimpse of Lupita’s shoes, but it was enough for us to identify them as the Gucci “Leila” platform sandals. Lupita also graciously posted the below picture of her glamorous ensemble on Instagram, which clearly shows what her green platform sandals look like.

Lupita’s own Leila sandals were most likely customized to match her one-of-a-kind Cannes gown. Thankfully, they come in many color and style variations for those of you wanting your own pair. Check them all out at Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue.
