Lupita Nyong'o legit looks like a mermaid at the Elle Women in Hollywood event
Let’s give a round of applause to one of Hollywood’s greatest fashion icons. Lupita Nyong’o DAZZLING at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards.
Mermaids always get a lot of play around Halloween. How could they not? Those flippy tails; the shimmering, form-fitting bottoms and detail-rich bodices. Everyone’s fantasized about being a mermaid at some point in her life, whether it be Ariel-inspired or maybe an ode to the most babely live-action mermaid ever: Darryl Hannah in Splash (you know you loved Splash). Whichever the case, stars can’t stop bringing mermaid realness to the red carpet, and for good reason. Feast your eyes on fashion-icon and natural beauty Lupita Nyong’o’s oceanic look as she arrived at the 23rd Annual Elle Women In Hollywood Awards.
That shimmer! The sheer glamour of it!
I mean, can we just?
Those gold strappy sandals have us feeling so glad this mermaid’s got feet.

Nyong’o kept her hair and makeup simple and elegant, pairing a bold brow and glossed lip with an edgy double-winged eye. Isn’t a double-wing just a mermaid tail in this case? We’re going with that.
The Queen of Katwe star paired the metallic, scarlet and blue patterned ensemble with some stunning gold accessories.
If mermaids have access to lavish underwater shopping malls (as we totally assume they do), you know they’re rocking sparkly swag like this.
Let us be part of your world, mermaid princess Lupita Nyong’o!
El fin. (Get it?)
