In case you need another reminder of why Lupita Nyong’o is so beloved, her appearance at this year’s Oscars says it all: She is a crown jewel. Or, rather, wore 6,000 of them at once.

Oh yeah, and she revealed her dress while carrying her OWN umbrella. No one has ever kept it so real while wearing this many pearls. (I’m unsure of whether someone has actually worn this many pearls at once, actually.) And that is precisely why only Lupita could pull off a creation like this while landing somewhere in between classic and forward.
