Oh dear Lupita.

Isn’t she a regular on the Best Dressed List?! I mean, she masters the art of colourful dresses! We give it to her.

On Thursday, the 12 Years A Slave star looked stunning in a psychedelic dress at the 8th annual Essence Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon in Los Angeles. At the event, the 31-year-old Oscar-winning actress could not stop smiling as she presented the Vanguard Award to the cast of one of her favorite shows, Orange Is The New Black.

She looked very chic in a myriad of hues donning a yellow, orange, blue, pink and maroon design.

The Yale University graduate did very easy with accessories to keep all eyes on her sleeveless frock. She completed her beautiful look with a light pink lip and very gentle swipes of dark eyeshadow. Stunner!
