Congratulations are in order for red carpet queen Lupita Nyong’o! Not only did she win the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in 12 Years a Slave, but she also emerged tops in our top ten Oscar fashion looks this year! Fashion houses were literally falling over themselves trying to get her to pick them to dress her for the Oscars. Lupita chose to go with a beautiful baby blue custom Prada gown with a plunging neckline. Lupita, who has become a firm fashion favourite over award season, said she chose the gown as it reminded her of the blue Nairobi sky. She accessorized with Fred Leighton jewelry.

When I think about him, I just think of the man who’s such a great friend and such an extraordinary father. And that’s when I fall, you know, when I have my moments of getting—whoarr!—caught up in how much I love him . . . it’s usually when I see him with the children.’ (more…)
Earlier this month producer Scott Rudin announced that he was developing a Cleopatra biopic “for and with Jolie” based on Stacy Schiff’s book “Cleopatra: A Life.” Schiff raved about the choice, telling USA Today, “Physically, she’s the perfect look.” But is she really? The above picture was computer generated by scientists at Cambridge University in 2008. (more…)
