The actress donned a lilac gown from the Elie Saab Resort 2017 collection for the event on Tuesday in Los Angeles, with the delicate colour ensuring she stood out from the crowd. With a plunging neckline, flowing skirt and thigh-high split, Lupita’s dress also featured a striped multi-coloured belt and a cross-over strap at the back in the same colour.

And the star topped her look with a colour coordinated headdress - continuing her seriously impressive streak of wearing gorgeous head wraps.

Lupita, who plays Harriet, the mother of young Ugandan chess champion Phiona Mutesi in the film, also posed alongside her co-star David Oyelowo at the event. David also made a sartorial statement in a shiny maroon suit, which he matched with black and yellow printed waistcoat, black tie and black leather loafers.
