Lupita Nyong’o Prepares for the Tonys in a Dazzling Oscar de la Renta Dress
Broadway stars sure know how to party.
Just a few weeks after the 2016 Tony Awards nominees hit New York’s Paramount Hotel for a talent-heavy luncheon in celebration of their nods, the thespians flocked back to the venue Monday night for a cocktail party ahead of this Sunday’s awards show.
In-demand stars like, well, the entire cast of Hamilton, were on hand to raise a glass to their fellow nominees as was Eclipsed actress Lupita Nyong’o, whose dusty rose ensemble drew special attention. The Oscar winner, who is up for a Tony in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play category, hit the red carpet in a tinsel organza Oscar de la Renta dress that featured an intricate printed design. The ruffled feature on the sleeveless bodice complemented the flowy, ankle-length skirt and she paired the look with copper-tinted pointed-toe pumps, a slim headband, and minimal Irene Neuwirth jewelry, including tear-drop earrings and rings.
Nyong’o is no stranger to dazzling in eye-catching hues that range from subdued shades to daring choices like the green Gucci gown she wore to the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. As for what she’ll wear on Sunday, we’ll have to tune in to find out.
Catch the 2016 Tony Awards on Sunday, June 12, at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
