Wearing an eggshell blue Prada gown, Lupita walked down the red carpet in beautiful jewels and a headband designed by Fred Leighton. Her headband gave her a touch of "goddess" for the night. The look was completed with an 18kt yellow gold and diamond headband next to a pair of 18kt yellow gold and rose-cut diamond spiked crescent earrings.

Nyong'o's nails were decorated with pastel pink shimmer by Deborah Lippman La Vie En Rose. Lippman applied a layer of gel base coat, then two coats of the pale pink shimmer La Vie En Rose, from the Spring 2014 collection. The look was completed with layer of gel top coat.
