Lupita Nyong’o: Colorful Gal at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards

Posted Sunday April 13, 2014 8:15 PM GMT

She is Hollywood's "it girl," so it only makes sense that Lupita Nyong'o made a big arrival at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards earlier this evening (April 13) in Los Angeles.

The "12 Years a Slave" actress looked stunning in her designer gown as she stopped for some photos on her way inside the Nokia Theatre for the big event.

Lupita will be looking to add more hardware to her collection tonight, as she is nominated for Best Female Performance.

Joining her in the category are Amy Adams, Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock, and Jennifer Lawrence.
