The famed Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC was held yesterday and everyone had their eyes on the Lupita Nyong'o MET Gala dress. The Kenyan-Mexican actress, who was recently crowned People's most beautiful woman of 2014, made her debut at the event and did not disappoint. The emerald Prada gown brought a dazzling 20s vibe with a modern twist. Since she was arguably the best dressed woman this past award's season, it is great to see she is still making statements.

Complete with a matching green headband and gem-studded heels, the Lupita Nyong'o MET Gala dress was finished with feathers along the sides to give it even more of a flair.
