86th Annual Academy Awards - People Magazine Press Room

Last night, we all beamed with pride as ’12 Years A Slave’ actress, Lupita Nyong’o accepted the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress…in her first film! For the historic occasion, the Kenyan beauty wore a powder blue double v-neck custom Prada gown and accessorized the look with a pretty headband and sick stud earrings. She was a vision on her big night.

Lupita’sOscar dress adds to the staggering list of drop-dead gorgeous red carpet ensembles styled by Micaela Erlanger. I love the Prada gown’s shade of blue against her skin. It’s pretty and quite serene. With Spring on it’s way (finally!) I’ve curated some fun looks using this beautiful hue. Time to get inspired!

Look #1: Acne dress, Coach heels


For a Spring afternoon try a Acne dress, Coach heels and  Proenza Schouler clutch. Accentuate the look with gold hoops, like these from  Capwell +Co, Thierry Lasry cat-eye shades, Topshop powder blush, Vincent Longo lip stain and Crabtree & Evelyn nude nail polish.

Look #2: River Island dress, Casadei heels


Go girly in a River Island dress, Casadei heels, Alexander McQueen clutch, and Sam Edelman earrings. For beauty try: Urban Decay Naked lip gloss, NARS nail polish, Napoleon Perdis falsies and a DuWop eye palette.

Look #3: T by Alexander Wang dress (Sale Alert!), Giuseppe Zanoti sandals


For a casual weekend try a T by Alexander Wang dress (Sale Alert!), Giuseppe Zanoti sandals, Rebecca Minkoff bag and Nasty Gal mirror shades. Pucker up with Topshop’s lip bullet and for your mani: Deborah Lippmann’s Blue Orchid’s tops it off nicely.
