We've gotten pretty used to Lupita Nyong'o blowing us away with her red carpet style and beauty looks. Up until this evening, we thought that the queen of bold, beautiful colors and jewel tones had finally run out of ways to wow us - but then we saw her in this pearl-adorned Calvin Klein number on the Oscars red carpet, and our hearts skipped a beat!
Got pearl envy yet? If not, this will get you there: Nyongo's dress is adorned with 6,000 real pearls, according to E! News. Since an Oscar-ready gown is probably not about to appear magically in our closets come midnight (dare to dream), we've picked out five pearl pieces that we could rock this week. Thanks for the style inspo (and major fashion FOMO), Lupita!
1. A pearl ear cuff
Pearl Earcuff Earrings, $17.90 at Zara
2. An out-of-the-box pearl necklace
Pearl and Chain Drape Necklace, $90 at Miss Selfridge
3. A pearl-adorned bustier
Pearling Out Bustier, $34 at Nasty Gal
4. A nautical pearl bangle
Pearl Anchor Bangle, $28 at Humble Chic
5. A delicate choker
Don't be surprised to see us in pearls every day this week - after all, when Lupita pulls it off so well, we can't help but want to follow suit. Next stop, pearl-embellished bodice!
