It feels like forever since we last saw Lupita Nyong’o on a red carpet. But luckily for us the starlet graced us on Wednesday during the Cannes Film Festival.

Nyong’o wore an incredible jade green Gucci gown to the premiere of La Tete HauteThe dress had a plunging neckline, embroidered crystals and delicate silk flowers. The 32-year-old completed her ensemble with a pair of pink quartz earrings with rubellites and white diamonds by Chopard.

As for her beauty look, Nyong’o went with purple lips (something only a handful of women can really pull off) and wore her hair high in a bun. On her Instagram account she credited the women of Uganda for inspiration. She also joked that people are calling the style a “fronut.”

The 2015 Cannes Film Festival is sure to bring out some amazing fashion choices. Although we think Nyong’o will win best dressed this year, we know we’re going to see some amazing gowns.

During the Opening Ceremony, Sienna Miller and Natalie Portman looked stunning, wearing Balenciaga and Dior respectfully. We also saw a lot of white on the red carpet with Doutzen Kroes and Karlie Kloss both in white Atelier Versace numbers and Bar Rafaeli in Helga Design.

We’ll definitely keep you updated on what’s to come the rest of the week. Right now, we’re super eager to see what Blakey Lively and Ryan Reynolds will be wearing!
