Lupita Nyong’o Had a ‘Shameless Out-of-Body Experience’ in a Silver Breastplate at the Tonys

For the 76th Annual Tony Awards on Sunday, June 11, in New York City, Lupita Nyong’o wore a striking breastplate molded from her own body. It’s like the female version of George Clooney’s Batman & Robin bat suit (which is a compliment, by the way). 

The Oscar-winning actor wore the sleeveless silver breastplate with a black tuxedo jacket and black high-waist, wide-leg trousers. The bespoke backless breastplate, by Misha Japanwala, a Pakistani artist and fashion designer, is attached to Nyong’o’s body by a single chain that fastens at the back of her neck. The 40-year-old accessorized with silver jewelry, a black and silver clutch, and a chrome manicure, as well as shimmery eye shadow, which she paired with a glossy berry lip. A graphic tattoo-like design adorned her head.
