Lupita Nyong’o is quickly becoming a red carpet fashion favorite. Not afraid of color, the 12 Years a Slave Mexican-born actress is up for an Oscar for “Best Supporting Actress,” and we can’t wait to see what she wears to the ceremony! Take a peek at some of her best looks thus far and find out what we think she’ll be wearing come Sunday, March 2:

Stunning in White
Can Nyong’o look more dazzling? This Prada gown was the perfect choice for the Toronto premiere of 12 Years a Slave.
Cheery in Yellow
This J. Mendel yellow gown at the 17th annual Hollywood Film Awards was accented beautifully with a beautiful orange lip look.
Black & White
Black and white is anything but boring at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Governors Awards (especially when finished with a purple lip). (Kudos to designer Prabal Gurung.)
Every girl loves pockets! This Lanvin strapless dress doesn’t disappoint at the IFP's 23nd Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards with a circle skirt and bow detail.
Pink and Gold
This Elie Saab shift dress at the Palm Springs International Film Festival awards gala is a step away from the gowns Nyong’o seems to favor, and we love the gold brocade detail over the pink. Beautiful.
Ah, the dress that landed Nyong’o on many a “best dressed” list! This Ralph Lauren number at the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards is beautiful, bold and not overdone. Bella!
Nyong’o showed off her awesome physique in this Calvin Klein cutout gown at the 19th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards.
Que bonita! Nyong’o looked absolutely fantastic in this bright blue Gucci number with floral detailing at the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Brilliant in Beige
Wearing Stella McCartney at the 25th annual Producers Guild of America Awards, Nyong’o shows how do to a bodycon dress right.
Green With Envy
Wow! Nyong’o killed it on the red carpet for the BAFTA Awards in London in this Dior gown.
What will she wear to the Oscars?
Nyong’o gave a quick teaser about what she could be wearing to the Oscars to The Daily Beast: "I love color and gravitate towards solid block colors. I like clean lines and a classic look, but I also like to have a sense of humor and wear things that put a smile on my face."
Cryptic, but we’ll take it. Here are three looks we think she could be wearing, plus our favorite dresses we think she’d look great in!
1) A white dress
Have you noticed how much Nyong’o gravitates towards white?
2) A solid jewel tone
Nyong’o mostly always wears a solid, clean color (and admits to gravitating towards that), so we’d love to see her in something that packs a punch. Our guess is that it’s going to be by a really known designer.
We’ll go out on a limb here: she hasn’t worn anything too purple-based, so we’d love to see her in this number by.
