Yes it’s 2014 and awards season has just started!  Last Sunday was the Golden Globes, which is thought of as a predictor to the Oscars.  I was just really interested in the fashion and makeup.  And waaaay before the show actually started, I was slayed, by Lupita Nyong’o!!  I thought that I was obsessed with Kerry Washington (I still love her), but this chick is flawless!!!!

When was the last time we saw a woman on the red carpet with a close cropped fade?? And that red dress??? The awards were over for me!  I cannot wait to see how her career unfolds!!
