A few hours ago, Oscar-award winning actress-Lupita Nyong’o took centre stage on the red carpet at the opening ceremony of the 68th Cannes Film Festival—rocking a dramatic jade Gucci chiffon plisse gown with a cape detail.

The actress,32, joined other celebrities on the red carpet at the La Tete Haute premiere, a new movie about a young delinquent as he comes of age, which stars Catherine Deneuve.

Lupita worn up her hair and secured in place with a couple of diamond encrusted alice bands.

The ’12 Years A Slave’ star had a great 2014 and as such, it was not surprising she stole the attention at the opening—and her gown also pulled all the lens to her corner.

The Opening Ceremony of the 68th Festival de Cannes took place at the Grand Théâtre Lumière.

After a ballet choreographed by Benjamin Millepied, Lambert Wilson welcomed on stage the Feature films Jury: Rossy de Palma, Sophie Marceau, Sienna Miller, Rokia Traoré, Guillermo del Toro, Xavier Dolan, Jake Gyllenhaal and their Presidents, Joel and Ethan Coen.

The Festival was declared open by Julianne Moore and the Ceremony continued with the screening Out of Competition of Emmanuelle Bercot’s La Tête Haute, with the key members of the movie crew in attendance.
