Ever since awards season wrapped up earlier this year, we've missed seeing Lupita Nyong'o kill it on the red carpet with her impeccable styling and her color-coordinated outfits (that effectively launched a monochromatic movement, we might add).

Luckily, she stepped out last night and graced us with another divine look, which also topped our best-dressed list today. And that ethereal look we love so much comprises bike shorts. Yes, bike shorts. Granted, they're Chanel couture, but bike shorts nevertheless (remember them from Couture Fashion Week?). The star selected ivory Chanel couture separates that boasted a regal high-neck neoprene tunic dress and matching shorts with exquisite red-and-gold beadwork. For her shoes, she stuck with the metallic theme and found footing in gold Kurt Geiger pumps.

The takeaway here? Nyong'o is red carpet royalty.
