She's been raking in the accolades for her star-turning performance in "12 Years A Slave" and Lupita Nyong'o is also well on her way to becoming one of the most talked about celebs on the red carpet.

The New York magazine cover girl made a splashy entrance on Monday at the AARP’s Movies for Grownups Awards Gala in Beverly Hills wearing a sexy mocha dress that showed off a lot of skin.

The shiny satin Valentino frock featured a cutout neckline and spaghetti straps which zig-zagged across her chest, giving the ensemble a more fashion-forward look.

To contrast the darker hue, the 29-year-old opted for a bright red lip which flattered her glowing skin.

It was a big change from earlier in the day, when the Oscar-nominee sported a romantic Christian Dior dress which featured a bold orange print at the 86th Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon.
