THE UNEXPECTED ACCESSORY – Take a deep breath, everyone! Evening dresses and optical frames are now a thing, thanks to everyone’s favorite risk-taker and all-around fashion girl, Lupita Nyong’o. While we may have already gotten used to her sartorial experiments and to her mastering red carpet dressing time and again, with this year’s Golden Globes she brought yet another fashion cue to the table: eyeglasses.
While on stage as a presenter at the 2015 Golden Globes, Lupita Nyong’o sported a chic pair of eyeglasses with golden, metallic temples. Even though she walked the red carpet without them, they came out when she needed to read the prompter. And if their use was necessary anyway, might as well make them shine, right? Lupita’s glasses strike that perfect mix of cool and elegant that we’d all like to wear. And, even better, they are a perfect match for her purple, whimsical dress.
It’s only a matter of time before these frames are up there in the red carpet hall of fame with the headband she sported at the 2014 Oscars and with, why not, Angelina’s 2012 leg pose – we’re calling it! This trend might not stick, but that’s the good news: being bold and standing out can’t be everyone’s cup of tea. So let’s stay ahead of the curve by channeling Lupita Nyong’o’s style. After all, we can’t be her, but what we CAN do, is to get our hands on a pair a metal-infused glasses and match them with a fabulous evening dress.
