Golden Globes: Lupita Nyong’o Turns Heads In Red Ralph Lauren Gown



Have you ever had a moment when someone walks into a room and their beauty simply brings everything to a screeching halt? Well, Lupita Nyong’o made that happen on Sunday as soon as she stepped onto the red carpet for the 2014 Golden Globes.

The 12 Years a Slave star, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Patsey in the film, turned heads as she strutted down the carpet in an exquisite, red, off the shoulder Ralph Lauren gown and cape.

The Kenyan beauty, who in our book tops the list for best dress at the Golden Globes, paired the ensemble with Fred Leighton accessories.

Vogue recently named Nyong’o one of the Top Ten Rising Style Stars of 2014 and on Sunday night the Yale graduate more than proved why she topped Vogue’s list.

“She stole every red-carpet heart this fall with her clean silhouettes, close-cropped coif, and ear-to-ear smile,” Vogue said about the rising star.

We tip our hats to the star.

Oprah Loved Being A Braided Blonde Bombshell In ‘A Wrinkle In Time’



Oprah Winfrey is a blonde bombshell in Ava Duvernay’s “A Wrinkle in Time” and she loved every minute of it. HipHollywood sat down with the media mogul along with Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling to talk about playing the Mrs. and their elaborate hair, make-up and costumes.

“Girl we had hair for days,” gushed Winfrey. “My favorite was the ponytail, the braid.”


Celebrity hair guru Kim Kimble, who frequently works with Beyonce, headed up the film’s hair department. For the film she turned Lady O into a blonde, Reese into a red head and gave Kaling fab braided locks. “They were like [hair] sculptures,” said Kaling who plays Mrs. Who.

So how long did it take to get these ladies out of this world ready? “Hours,” joked Winfrey and Reese in unison.

To be exact, the ladies were in hair and make-up 3-5 hours daily as lead hairstylist Kim Kimble and make-up artists LaLette Littlejohn and Derrick Rutledge got them camera ready. “I think Kim and the team worked for days before, sculpting and making it right,” added Winfrey who plays Mrs. Which.

Derrick Rutledge, Winfrey’s personal makeup artist who also worked on the film, designed rhinestone eyebrows for each Mrs. Which ensemble. Meanwhile costume designer Paco Delgado drew from volcano explosions and depictions of galaxies to create costumes that made Winfrey shimmer and appear larger than life.

In the Disney big screen adaption, the three celestial beings – Mrs. Which, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Whatsit lead 13-year-old Meg (Storm Reid) and others on a journey to rescue the girl’s scientist father (Chris Pine) from evil otherworldly forces.

It’s better seen than simply described, so be sure to check out A Wrinkle In Time in theaters now!
