Lupita STRIKES AGAIN! Lovely in Lavender At The ‘Queen of Katwe’ Premiere!

Lupita Nyong’o Looks Lovely in Lavender At The ‘Queen of Katwe’ L.A. Premiere!
Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o hardly ever disappoints when it comes to slaying a red carpet. And last night was no different.
The gorgeous actress dazzled in a flowy lavender Ellie Saab gown that featured double slits and stripped trimming on the red carpet for the Queen of Katwe premiere held at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. 
She topped off her look with lavender headwrap that added the perfect touch to her ensemble.
Mira Nair’s (above, left) Queen of Katwe tells the story of a young girl from the slums of Kampala who follows her heart and chases her dream of becoming an international chess champion, based on the biographical Tim Crothers book.
Newbie Madina Nalwanga (above, 2nd from the left) will play chess prodigy Phiona Mutsei and Lupita will star as Phiona’s mother Harriet Mutesi. David Oyelowo also stars in the film as a missionary who teaches chess to local kids and becomes a mentor to Phiona.

Crown him! David kept it debonair in a tailored suit with an African print-covered vest as he made his way down the carpet. King ish!
His beautiful family joined him on the carpet, all rocking African prints, for the big night.
Some of the real life people the story is based on were on the carpet to snap it up with the cast. Chess coach and director of Sports Outreach in Uganda, Robert Katende, Ugandan national chess champion Phiona Mutesi, director Mira Nair, actors Madina Nalwanga, Lupita, David and Martin Kabanza were all in attendance.
Queen of Katwe hits theaters this Friday, September 23rd.
