Forget the pearl necklace—where Lupita Nyong'o's concerned, it's go big or go home.
On Sunday, the Oscar winner wore a custom-made Calvin Klein dress encrusted with more than 6,000 pearls (bow down) when she walked the 2015 Oscars red carpet.
The white column gown featured intricate beading, a halter neckline and a peek-a-boo keyhole cutout that elevated the glamourous gown to a whole new level.
Even though she's not a nominee this year, the "12 Years A Slave" star was just happy to be there.
"I can just dress up and enjoy the show," she told E! Live on the red carpet, and joked with Ryan Seacrest that, "the pressure's off!"
Lupita, you pulled it off beautifully.
