Lupita Nyong’o is having a good week. Not only did she win the best supporting actress Oscar for her role in 12 Years a Slave, she also killed it on the red carpet. Her pale blue pleated Prada gown, complete with a plunging neckline, was princess-like in the best way possible. But the real show stopper was on her head: The star’s diamond and gold Fred Leighton headband completed her Academy Award-winning look, landing her on countless best dressed lists and even spawning its own Twitter account.
If you’re as obsessed with Lupita’s look as we are, the good news is you can easily add a bit of her Oscar-worthy glamour to your wedding day look with a headband of your own.Whether you’re looking for a bold topper or just want a simple finish to your outfit, there’s tons of options to choose from.
If you’d prefer something a bit more glamorous, Jenny Packham’s jeweled headwrap (pictured, above; $384; shopbop.com) is complete with crystals in varying shapes as well as an adjustable tie, so you know it won’t fall off when you dance the night away.
The intricate Swarovski crystal vine design of Louise Marriette’s Winter Palace headband (pictured, above left; $300; bhldn.com) is a statement-making finish to your wedding day look. Tasha’s crystal headband (pictured, middle; $58; nordstom.com) is perfect for the more minimalistic bride. It has three rows of crystals on silver metal, which gives it a dainty feel. Lastly, we love Jennifer Behr’s Estee Circlet (pictured, right; $425; jcrew.com) featuring six delicate Swarovski crystal stars reminiscent of starfish, which rest on the side of your head and make it beach-wedding ready.
