Lupita Nyong'o Shows Off Some Skin At W Magazine Celebration (PHOTOS)

Lupita Nyong'o just gets better and better.

The "12 Years A Slave" actress showed off her sexy side when she attended the W Magazine celebration of the ‘Best Performances’ portfolio in L.A. on Thursday wearing a Proenza Schouler LBD.

Nyong'o, who appears on one of six covers of W magazine's February Movie Issue, showed off her style savvy in the 2014 Resort frock which featured a cutout below her chest and elegant draping.

The 30-year-old's star has been rising not only because of her critically acclaimed performance as Patsey, but because of her on-point style.

From vibrant colours and prints to menswear-inspired and unexpected pairings (not to mention her flawless beauty looks) the Mexico-born actress has perfected red carpet dressing.

No wonder the BAFTA Rising Star nominee is the new face of Miu Miu!

Check out her fierce style:
