Call it a whimsical break from all the wonderfully scary looks Lupita Nyong's recently been sporty. The star of Jordan Peele's thriller U.S traded their colored contacts for something that was definitely less ghostly: a swinging head box that makes us stare for Nyong's harder than ever before.

Nyong & # 39; s stepped out with a multicolored Prabal Gurung dress, poppy red Nine West heels, a light yellow Mansur Gavriel coat and a Brahmin matching color suit. Behind the scenes during the finished process, Nyong sang and danced to Bill Withers "A Happy Day".
