We--along with the rest of the world--are crushing pretty hard on Lupita Nyong'o and it's easy to see why. Along with being super talented and charming, the Oscar nominee has an unblemished track record when it comes to red carpet style (see the Golden Globes, Producers Guild Awards, and SAGs for proof). And she kept her streak going on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon earlier this week--all while showing us that a top and pants outfit is a more than suitable substitution for a dressy dress.
Lupita nailed it in a matched royal purple silk top and wide leg trousers ensemble from the Cushnie et Ochs spring 2014 collection. The opulent jewel tones and streamlined silhouette of the slinky top and billowy trousers give a formal air of distinction to a usual-pants-outfit. Plus, the color just looks so beautiful on her, right?

Are you as obsessed with Lupita in this outfit as I am? Or obsessed in general?
