Style Crush: Lupita Nyong'o is an Awards Season Fashion Favorite

Posted Tuesday January 21, 2014 10:10 AM GMT

Her first love may be acting, but we're head over heels for Lupita Nyong'o's fashion sense almost as much as her on-screen talent.

The "12 Years a Slave" star recently told E! that she doesn't "feel pressure" when it comes to red carpet style because her job is her main focus. While we appreciate the honesty, it appears Lupita doesn't have anything to worry about — as repeatedly landing herself on best-dressed lists apparently comes natural.

Time and again we've seen the stunning up-and-comer stake her claim as a sartorial standout, picking pieces that flex her fashion know-how (and those amazing arms) flawlessly.

While many of Tinseltown's elite shine in one signature silhouette, Nyong'o has ditched any remnant of predictability, instead keeping fans guessing as to what cut and color she'll show up in next. So far, all of her choices have proved to be Hollywood knockouts.

From the Golden Globes to Sunday night's Producers Guild Of America event, browse Lupita's most award-worthy style moments in the gallery below. And of course, stay tuned to DIY Fashion to find out what she wears to the next red carpet.
