Lupita Nyong’o Actually Just Shut Down Cannes

Serving fire from every angle.

The last time we saw Lupita in green she was wading in questionable waters at last year's Met Gala, in an unfortunate Earth Day flapper ensemble. Walking onto the red carpet at Cannes last night in a mintier green hue, the actress redeemed herself—ten times over. Her Gucci dress was a literal breath of fresh air: it fluttered and folded as she walked, clinging and flowing in precisely the right spots, setting off her violet lipstick and heavy teardrop earrings. She looked like some kind of exotic bird that had landed by chance on the red carpet, and every photographer there appears to have realized the beatiful moment they'd been blessed with.
