By now, you should already know that Lupita Nyong’o brings sass and class to the red carpets and Tuesday night wasn’t an exception.

The Hollywood star channelled sexy superhero but not in a Halloween way. She shimmered on the red carpet at the 2018 National Board Of Review Annual Awards Gala.

Rocking a sparkly black velvet crop top and figure-hugging skirt from Balmain‘s Pre-Fall 2018 collection, The two-piece had a sparkly look with bold silver button details, giving off a starry night appeal on the red carpet. As with most Balmain outfits, the two-piece allowed a peek at her toned tummy for a sultry effect.

Lupita’s cosmetics choice was a subtle sparkle as she went with a slightly smokey eye and a dark berry lip done by Nick Barose that highlighted her perfect ebony skin complimented by gorgeous thin twists styled into an asymmetric updo by hairstylist Vernon François.

Finishing off the all-black ensemble, she went ahead to accessorise with black Jimmy Choo sandals and minimal Dana Rebecca Designs rings.

We couldn’t hold back from screaming Yasss!
