The Queen has arrived!
Lupita Nyong’o hit the red carpet Saturday for the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of her latest film, Disney’s The Queen of Katwe.
Nyong’o, 33, wore a vibrant canary-and-cobalt strapless dress with intricate flora detailing on the bodice, and accessorized the formfitting look with a matching blue headdress.
But her biggest, most jaw-dropping fashion statement was her bling: The actress wore $624,000 worth of jewelry from Tiffany & Co., including an 8.21-carat yellow-diamond ring, a 15.75-carat sapphire-and-diamond ring, and tanzanite-and-diamond earrings.
The busy actress, who will also reprise her role as Maz Kanata in the next Star Wars movie, plays Harriet Mutesi, mother of a 12-year-old chess prodigy, Phiona Mutesi, from the slums of Uganda.
