The award seasons for 2014 kicked off with the NBC’s 71st Annual  Golden Globes Awards. Once again red carpet veteran and favourite Cate Blanchett who has never failed to nail it in recent times showed us why she is one of the best dressed women of 2013, there were lots of hits and a few misses here and there but over all it was a good night for fashion. Even the men were not left out as they mostly looked sharp in their formal attire and my favourite of the night was Matthew McCounaghey, he was tipped to win big and definitely didn’t want to be caught looking shabby while at it. And of course he won big!

The most memorable fashion moment of the night was when Kenyan descent actress Lupita Nyong’o stepped on the red carpet. Jaws everywhere dropped and I literally held my breath as I watched her grace the carpet from my television screen. She looked exquisite and completely stole the red carpet show in  Ralph Lauren  red cape dress and minimal accessories.  Lupita who was nominated in the performance by an actress in a supporting role for  her work in 12 years a slave didn’t win the coveted award  but she sure won the hearts of fashion lovers everywhere in this look reminiscent of  Gwyneth Paltrow  2012 Oscar awards  cape and gown look by Tom Ford

The style worn by Lupita Nyong’o is a red silk candy cape dress from the 2014 spring runway that easily makes her the best dressed. Its awards season and Lupita has been consistently killing it on the pre season red carpets rounds and ’12 years a slave’ premieres. It is fitting to say we have found our new ‘it’ girl. She was recently announced as the face of Miu Miu  spring 2014 advertising campaign and we saw her on W magazine cover for this month . Let’s take a look at  previous  carpet looks prior to her major red carpet appearance.
