Lupita Nyong’o red hot at Dior

Lupita Nyong’o and Emily Blunt wowed on the front row of Christian Dior’s Haute Couture collection show in Paris

The 12 Years a Slave actress attended the French brand’s Haute Couture show in Paris on Monday. And the 32-year-old pulled out all the stops as she arrived for the highly anticipated catwalk showcase in a vivid red skater style dress.

The garment featured a square neckline and capped sleeves, with a little button detail at the waist before flowing out into a short A-line skirt. The star teamed it with a black clutch bag and shoes, as well as a pair of funky shades to protect her eyes from the bright July sunlight.

Once inside, she removed the sunglasses to reveal silver and black glittery eyeshadow.

Lupita clearly enjoyed the show and after congratulating Creative Director Raf Simons on his collection, the star took to Instagram to update her followers on her day.

“Just out of an exquisite show. @dior #hautecouture #autumnwinter 2015-2016 #Paris #somethingtolookforwardto (sic)” she wrote alongside a picture of herself in front of the venue.

Lupita wasn’t the only A-list actress in attendance however. Into the Woods star Emily Blunt also sat pride of place on the front row looking amazing in a white structured dress by the fashion house. The knee-length cut of the garment and the elongated peplum design was simple yet striking. While Emily styled her hair into sleek vintage waves at the side of her face to give the whole ensemble a nostalgic feel. She completed the look with some dog tooth print heels and a small purse.
