Lupita Nyongo wore a Calvin Klein dress embellished with 6,000 pearls to the 2015 Oscar Awards. Lupita has been a fashion darling since she rose to prominence for her Oscar-winning role in "12 Years A Slave." She takes risks and manages to slay.
Images of Josephine Baker immediately entered my mind as soon as I the gown. We don't know if this was an intentional homage, but let's just use this as a reminder that Black women have been giving us everything since forever.
And shout out to the photographers for capturing Lupita's complexion in all of its dark brown glory.
