You can always count on Lupita Nyong'o to serve a creative beauty look during awards season, and at the 2019 Oscars, she went all out.

Wearing an Oscar de la Renta asymmetric feathered dress, all eyes were on her look from the back at the 2019 Vanity Fair after-party. In line with the trailing oversized black bow adorning her dress, Nyong'o showcased the most incredible hairstyle: a sculptural up-do fringed in silver beads, matching her Forevermark jewellery.

It was the handiwork of Nyong'o’s long-term hairstylist, Vernon François, a hair visionary who’s famed for his artistry that always blends elegance with an edge.

Last year at the 2018 Oscars ceremony Nyong'o served an equally stunning hairstyle, which François drew inspiration from the Amasunzu hairstyles of Rwanda to incorporate gold thread into her hair, matching her after-party outfit.
