We're calling it: Lupita Nyong'o is one of the best dressed at the 2014 Oscars.

The stunning "12 Years A Slave" star (and Oscar nominee) took to the red carpet on Sunday and blew us all away with a pale blue Prada gown which she teasingly called, "Nairobi Blue."

The flowing frock featured a long, a-line pleated skirt with silver thread running through it, making her look like an angel. A super deep-v gave the outfit a boost of sex appeal while a matching blue belt showed off her svelte waist.

One of our favourite parts of her ensemble had nothing to do with the dress: it was all about that cute gold headband which accentuated her short hair which was standing up high on her head.

Even if she doesn't win the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, she's still a winner in our hearts.

Lupita's in glamorous company:
