Lupita Nyong’o: Best MET Save
Not gonna lie…
I was disappointed in Lupita Nyong’o’s dress. I saw the dress before I saw her face. This dress is just so… Kate Hudson, you know?
You know. And she knew. Which is why she pulled this move. Because when the outfit isn’t a smash hit, you make everything around it the conversation. You make it so that the outfit doesn’t matter. All that matters here, with Lupita, is this hair.
It’s a hair tower. It’s hair art. Because this hair is spectacular from every.f-cking.angle. You shoot it from the front and it’s a monument. You shoot it from the side, with that great posture of hers, and it’s a sculpture. It’s the hair that you will remember, and not the dress, long after this night is over. I call this a save. And then a major score.
