Seriously, has Lupita Nyong’o made a single bad wardrobe choice this awards season? Because it seems like every time she steps on the red carpet she lands a spot on the best-dressed list, and this week was no exception. The 12 Years a Slave actress came out on top in our Most Loved Looks competition, earning an 88% approval rating for her ensemble at the Producers Guild of America Awards in Beverly Hills.

This time Lupita wowed in a peach Stella McCartney dress with a one-shoulder neckline and skintight fit. She accessorized the look with a snakeskin clutch and strappy brown heels, as well as minimal makeup (by the way, where can we sign up for her flawless complexion?).

Coming in at the No. 2 spot was Helen Mirren (!), who stepped out in a sheer and bedazzled Elie Saab gown at the Producers Guild of America Awards. We loved her sexy look, and clearly readers did too. We also love that a 68-year-old actress is beating out most of the competition.

Tell us: Do you also think Lupita is this awards season’s red carpet MVP? If not, whose look are you loving?

She dresses beautifully and carries herself well.

She is absolutely gorgeous, and dresses beautifully. This is a style icon I finally understand, unlike the weird obsession with Kerry Washington.

WOW she is BEAUTIFUL!!! Her skin is breathtaking and so refreshing.

Ryry on

She (or her stylist) has impeccable taste in selecting clothing.

I am enjoying her beauty and sense of style. She seems down to earth. Kerry Washington is a style icon as well, but Kerry seems aloof and full of herself and her constant comment ” I don’t talk about my personal life” is getting old and tired. I much rather see Lupita. I have watched her interviews and she is so engaging and witty. We need a break from Kerry Washington.

This woman would look good in ANY color!

She’s perfection! Classy, tasteful and sexy! Beautiful woman with impeccable taste. If she’s got a stylist, they make no mistakes. But it should be easy to dress a woman that stunning. Lupita Nyong’o is an amazing actress who is obviously very intelligent( Yale graduate) and naturally beautiful. Before anyone brings race into this( someone always does) I’m a 35 yr old white woman. Perfection is perfection regardless of color and this woman has it!!!!

I think Lupita is a beautiful lady and her style is impeccable. I also think Kerry Washington is stylish as well. The fact that she doesn’t talk about her personal life makes me adore her even more!! I don’t want to hear about a celebrity getting a pet, lying how they lost weight etc. I wish more would follow suit. First up, The Kardashians.

This woman is absolutely stunning! She has not disappointed with regards to fashion, nor talent! She is such a bright star. I never gush about celebrities but I just can’t help myself.

Love her style, and even more I love the natural hairstyle!!! As Brooke said – perfection is perfection regardless of color
