Lupita Nyong'o isn't afraid to make a fashion statement. Just look at the eclectic wardrobe choices she opted to wear during the SXSW festival this year. But it's not just Lupita's clothes that are making headlines—it's also her makeup and hairstyles that have made her a risk-taker when it comes to fashion. Her latest trend? Unconventional (but incredibly haute) contact lenses that she's been photographed wearing during a press tour to promote upcoming Jordan Peele-directed thriller, Us.
Lupita Nyong'o's latest fashion trend? Haunting and haute colored contact lenses. The star also wore diamond earrings by Djula.
Last week, the actress dolled up for the London premiere of Us and paired a sequined red gown with gorgeous makeup. Her dark smokey eyes and ebony lips were offset with fuchsia-colored cheeks, but the most striking part of her look were the haunting crimson-colored contacts she was wearing. "Seeing red," she captioned an Instagram post where she showed off the unusual look.
A few days later, the actress visited the Late Show with Stephen Colbert and looked head-to-toe gorgeous wearing a hot pink Bande Noir jumpsuit, a side-swept hairdo and—you guessed it—colored contacts. However, this time she chose to wear shiny gold lenses for the night. A choice that made Stephen Colbert hilariously uncomfortable.
"I just want everyone out there to know talking to Lupita Nyong’o is always engrossing because you have beautiful eyes, but they’re particularly arresting tonight,” Stephen joked about Lupita's golden eyes. “It’s a little scary! I’ll try to pay attention to what you’re saying,” he laughed.

Lupita also wore Djula diamond earrings whilst on the show, the perfect way to frame her hauntingly haute look.
You can catch Lupita in Us this weekend (in theaters March 22) and until the next pair of colored contacts!
