It was Lupita Nyong'o's moment to shine last night as she picked up an award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role dressed in Fred Leighton jewels - the third time in just a few months that she has turned to the estate jeweller for her red carpet accessories.
As befits the most important awards ceremony of the season in LA, Lupita chose a classic selection of jewels to match her powder-blue Prada gown - an elegant departure from the turquoise and red dresses she wore to the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards in January.
Proving that you don't have to have long hair to wear jewels in your hair, Lupita sparkled in a yellow gold and diamond headband, paired with spiked crescent diamond earrings. The vintage jewels for which Fred Leighton is famed weren't overlooked either, with a 19th-century yellow gold and diamond coiled snake bracelet, two 19th-century pearl and opal rings, and 1960s gold, turquoise and diamond ring decorating her fingers.
Lupita also gave a nod to her heritage by wearing a gold frog ring also by the estate jeweller, which she described as her "family totem".
Fred Leighton's vintage jewels have been worn by legions of stars, including Natalie Portman and Sarah Jessica Parker. To read more about this historic jeweller who is synonymous with the red carpet, click here.
