Lupita Nyong'o delivers a performance in "12 Years A Slave" that is nothing short of extraordinary. And if the Kenyan actress' talent, crazy Oscar buzz and stunning good looks haven't caught your attention, then her style certainly will.

The 30-year-old star turned heads Monday night in a bright yellow gown by J Mendel while being honored at the 17th Annual Hollywood Film Awards. And while vibrant colors are definitely a go-to style choice for the Yale Drama School graduate, we've also seen her rock bold prints like a champ (Solange would be proud)!

But beyond her amazing ensembles, Lupita's natural beauty is what really shines through. Her petite yet toned frame, flawless skin and chic TWA (teeny weeny Afro) make her a standout star that we can't wait to see more of. And we definitely want more.

Keep the fab coming, Lupita!

Here's a look at Lupita's stunning J Mendel gown and check out the slideshow below for 10 more reasons this star has captured our style-loving heart!
