If there's anyone who comes close to real-life fairytale princess, it'd be Lupita Nyong'o, hands down. The star skyrocketed to fame last year for her Oscar-winning performance in 12 Years a Slave and has since enchanted us with her impeccable red carpet style. It also helped that she channeled Cinderella as the 2014 Oscars in a beautiful sweeping icy blue Prada creation, complete with an 18-karat gold-and-diamond Fred Leighton tiara headband.

With awards season long gone, we've missed seeing Nyong'o reign the red carpet with her signature one-color-wonder style. But as of last weekend, our monochromatic queen is back from her hiatus. She stepped out for the Sindika Dokolo Art Foundation and dined in head-to-toe black, accessorizing her ruffled Fitriani little black dress with a mini ladylike handbag and black pumps.

The crown jewel of her look? Her beautiful bejeweled rose gold headpiece, which may look like a diamond Fred Leighton stunner, but actually rings in at the affordable price of $58! Available at, her Henri Bendel "Socialite" headwrap comes in two metallic colorways—rose gold and silver—with brilliant crystal elements. And, did we mention it's $58? Take Nyong'o's cue and bling up a LBD (or any outfit, for that matter) with the high-shine headwrap, and maybe you, too, will develop a penchant for princess-inspired headbands.
