Lupita Nyong’o took the red carpet by storm at the South by Southwest Film Festival, where she attended the premiere of the upcoming movie, Us.
The actress, notable for her sartorial prowess, turned heads as she showed up in a look channeling Snoop Dogg.
At the premiere, the actress sported a white power suit by luxury fashion label Honayda with hair inspired by a picture of Snoop Dogg that was taken by French photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino in 1994.
Nyong’o’s hair was done by hairstylist Vernon François, and featured metallic clips alike those used by Snoop Dogg in the reference photo.
Makeup artist Nick Barose also added a dash of charm to the look with red, orange, and gold eyeshadow across the actress’s eyelids.
The actress posted her personal homage to Snoop Dogg on Instagram, and was greeted with a glowing reception. Many praised her look for its artistic flair, with one Instagram user commenting that Nyong’o’s looked like she “belongs in the @metmuseum.”
The upcoming movie Us stars Nyong’o alongside Elisabeth Moss, Winston Duke and Tim Heidecker. It was written and directed by Jordan Peele, famous for his last horror movie Get Out, which received critical acclaim.
