20. Lupita Nyon'o At The 2020 SAG Awards
Lupita Nyong'o looked elegant in a strapless Louis Vuitton frock while walking the silver carpet before the ceremony. From afar, the dress may seem simple, but it might surprise you to learn that it was embellished with 32,000 sequins and crystals. "We’ve been working on this for months, since before Thanksgiving. We really wanted to harness the elegance and timelessness and modernity that Lupita embodies and values," Nyong'o stylist, Micaela Erlanger, told The Hollywood Reporter

To top off her look, the actress also donned luxurious Forevermark diamonds that were worth a staggering $3.5 million dollars. "The Forevermark pieces are as brilliant and luminous as she is. I've selected Forevermark many times over the years not only for the beautiful diamonds, but I also love their commitment to ethical sourcing and sustainability, which is so important to me and my clients. One of her rings is worth a million dollars. Basically, the girl’s dripping in jewels!" Erlanger said. 

As for her hair, the star donned a chic asymmetrical updo to show off her features. Her hairstylist, Vernon François, spoke to Vogue about the inspiration behind the 'do. "When channeling the glamour of Old Hollywood, you don't often see it done with this hair texture. She's got a beautiful neckline and I thought it was the perfect opportunity to showcase the strength of 1940s hairstyles."
