Lupita Nyong’o was light as a feather Sunday while attending the 91st annual Academy Awards in Hollywood and its associated parties.

The 35-year-old Black Panther star looked ready to take flight in a white, feathery Oscar de la Renta gown.

The Oscar-winning actress bared one-shoulder in the dress that included an asymmetrical hem that showed her legs up front with a train in the back.

Lupita completed her outfit with black Sin Satin sandals from Roger Vivier and accessorized with sparkling earrings.

She accentuated her natural beauty with eye makeup and red lipstick.

Lupita took to Instagram after the awards ceremony to celebrate the film’s three Oscar wins for Best Costume Design, Production Design and Score.

She posted a photo of herself in the audience at the Dolby Theatre along with some of her Black Panther co-stars.

Lupita wrote in the caption for her roughly 6.8 million followers: ‘@TheRealRuthECarter and #HannahBeachler are the first black women ever to win their respective categories, and these are @MarvelStudios’ first Oscar statues. I’m so grateful to have been part of this journey and can’t wait to see what’s next. #WakandaForever’.
