Lupita Nyong’o continues to make the rounds promoting 12 Years A Slave and acquainting the world with her beautiful face.She attended the Paris premiere of 12 Years A Slave wearing an Elie Saab resort 2014 red sequined sheath dress with red pumps.Lupita Nyong'o Elie Saab resort 2014 red sequins sheath dress

I won’t dare to question Lupita’s fashion choices. Her red pumps looked perfectly fine with her red dress; but I would probably have chosen a different color shoes. I generally don’t like red shoes for red dresses; but again I am no fashion stylist. Lupita looked gorgeous. There was nothing wrong with her style. Red shoes obviously go with a red dress; but for me a metallic shoe or a nude shoe or even a black shoe would have been a better choice.

The dress Lupita wore to attend the premiere of 12 Years A Slave at Cinema UGC Normandie in Paris apparently comes with an $8,080 price tag. Can you imagine being able to afford something like that? Not in my wildest dreams.

Here’s a more affordable red dress if you’re looking for a red dress to wear to an upcoming event. Note that I said “more affordable” as in more affordable than the Elie Saab dress Lupita wore to the Paris premiere of “12 Years A Slave”; but it is still a very expensive dress. It comes with a $3,475 price tag.
