Lupita Nyong’o attended the Annual Academy Awards this year in a one-of-a-kind creation.

Nyong’o wore a beaded dress by Calvin Klein that featured more than 6,000 pearls to make her one of the highlights on the red carpet. The dress fit the 12-Years A Slave actress to perfection and included a cleverly placed keyhole cutout at the end of a plunging v-neckline. The dress highlighted Nyong’o’s healthy complexion and slim figure. The all white dress stunned on the red carpet as many were in awe of the pearl detailing that went into the custom design.

The Oscar winner presented the award for Best Supporting Actor this year which eventually went to J.K. Simmons for Whiplash. The young star was red carpet royalty at the awards as she attended with her date, her brother. Nyong’o’s is next set to star in the much anticipated continuation of the legendary movie series, in Star Wars Episode VII; The Force Awakens. The sequel directed by J.J. Abrams is set to hit theaters this December.

You can catch this look for less —but without the need to wear thousands of pearls and in a more subtle color at Neiman Marcus. This dress is shines using smartly placed sequin accents and a floral print design. This dress does not include a revealing neckline but instead a thigh-high split. This Halston Heritage design is great for making a statement at any event.
