Lupita Nyong’o turned heads at the Tony Awards on Sunday in New York City. 

The actress paired a black velvet suit jacket and trousers with a metallic custom-made piece by Pakistani artist Misha Japanwala. 

“Honored, humbled, strengthened and energized to don this breastplate created by @mishajapanwala, which she cast and molded of my body,” Nyong’o wrote on Instagram. 

Nyong’o accessorized with a Venezia box clutch by The Bella Rosa Collection. She also added geometric silver rings and large diamond stud earrings. 

The actress was assisted by her longtime stylist, Micaela Erlanger, who also dresses stars like Anya Taylor-Joy, Olivia Culpo and Maddie Ziegler. 

For makeup, Nyong’o wore a red lip and black eyeshadow. Her shaved head revealed an intricate henna tattoo by artist Sabeen Marghoob. 

During the live broadcast that aired on CBS and Paramount+, she covered up her breasts with her jacket. It’s unclear if she was asked to do so by producers. The Hollywood Reporter has reached out for comment. 

While she’s never won a Tony, Nyong’o was previously nominated for lead actress in a play in 2016. She was recognized for her performance in Danai Gurira’s Eclipsed.
