Lupita Nyong’o channels her inner flapper in a Prada dress at the 2014 Met Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

    Someone should have told Lupita that this was a theme ball and all the dresses should be like these ones.

  • K

    Far out man
    like wow

  • Bella

    LOL, she is so funny, good choice Lupita!
    She is always gorgeous.

  • amanda

    I think she got the theme wrong.

  • Kate

    Girl never gets it wrong on the red carpet but decides to get it very wrong at the Met Ball. Lol. She’s still beautiful though, her dress not so much :-/

  • Nice

    Awesome. This is a creative take on the flapper look. She looks cool as f*ck.

  • Looks like a bag of avocados

  • Inappropiate

    @Bella:

    She looks ugly with that hair.

    Let alone the fact the dress is inappropiate……

  • suze

    This is a miss.

    simple and true. a miss.

  • lillian

    You guys know the met gala is about pushing the limits in terms of fashion right??? like, it’s not meant to be about who looks the prettiest or cutest in a ball gown. lupita did her job, she looks great

  • mom50

    I have to give her a pass this time. She usually looks amazing!

  • Hell No

    Looks like a Halloween costume.

  • A joke

    Lupita’s outfit looks like a carnival dress next to Karoline Kurkova, Charlize Theron…..

  • BIG FAILURE

    @Vogue:

    It’s NOT about pushing the limits.This year the Met Gala was a homage to these kind of ball gowns.

    Lupita’s outfit looks like a fishing net.

  • AshleyLove

    GMA was just talking about her never missing in her fashion choices. I guess that’s going to change today. Where is going? To an Indian convention.

  • Marge

    On the other hand, Rihanna looks GREAT.

  • Ivy

    What a bunch of unimaginative country hicks posting on here. The girl is fab, funny and gorgeous!

  • Peaches

    OK here are the good points. I love her hair and makeup up and the shape and cut of the dress is really flattering on her. Now for the not so good points: I hate the colour of the dress and its netting. The whole I can’t stand. Epic fail.

  • HORRIBLE

    Her hair is just as horrible as her dress.

  • mom50

    The dress would get pass if it wasn’t for that horrid head band, I agree though that she is a beautiful lady

  • Sandy

    @Ivy:

    Karoline Kurkova dress is imaginative and gorgeous.

    Lupita is the loser of the night.

  • Sandy

    This is what MET GALA was about.
    It seems that Lupita missed the meme.

  • why bother

    no effort here

  • Smile

    She wants to be cast in Tron.

  • Joelle

    Hell nooooooo! Lupita have you lost your mind?

  • Andrea

    Too many wrongs to make it right.

  • Kim

    In the words of the late, great Whitney Houston “H#LL TO THE NO”

  • essie

    think it would look better without the headband

  • Blythe

    Beyond the dress, it’s her hair that’s scaring me. Her stylists are suffering from creative fatigue. They’ve been going downhill since she won the Oscar.

  • tammy

    The dress is hideous.And she is ugly no matter what she wears.Too much overated and too much exposed.And yet no good roles in any movies to come.

  • Twinkle

    Lupita is human–her first fashion misstep.

  • Bill

    @tammy

    Go back to you trailer!

  • Matt

    awful and doesn’t make any sense for the event.

  • WhoDressesThem

    This is what happens when she gets to choose her own outfit

  • Cate

    She looks ridiculous and it doesn’t ven fit the ‘Charles James’ theme. I’ll always give people credit if they take a risk but are at least trying to adhere to the theme but this is just a mess. At least her make-up and face are pretty and she seems to be having fun I suppose!

  • BrainScience

    She’s ugly.

    The only reason you think she’s pretty is cause the media keeps telling you that she’s pretty and so you believe it cause you’re a follower. Then they continue to bombard you with pictures of her and the same comments, hello repitition wires your brain to think you’re the one who finds her pretty. You’re brainwashed!

    I see her without the rose colored glasses and trust me she’s not pretty. Her eyes are bloodshot.

  • Mary

    @BrainScience:
    U r blind nd color-struck. The media has brainwashed people for centuries that dark is ugly and manly nd u accepted. I bet you don’t find people with lupita’s skin tone/ hair as pretty.
    She has the perfect face…perfect facial symetry according to the scientific formula for perfect human face.Her bone structure is AMAZING

    It’s okay if u don’t find her pretty…there are many that thought she was beautiful before the mass media exposure.
    You just have to deal with the fact that a lot people genuinely find her pretty/beautiful.
