Nyong’o, who is certainly no stranger to a good bun, wore her hair parted near her ears and slicked into three buns down the middle of her head (are you picking up on the Princess Leia reference?) — the first of which was wrapped in super-chic netting to match the mesh bottom of her gorgeous Proenza Schouler dress. The rest of her makeup was fairly toned down — her lids shimmery and a bit smoky, with glowing skin to match.

And while she’s been daring with her beauty looks lately — she wore an awesome geometric bob on the cover of Rhapsody Magazine this month and striking silver liner to the L.A. premiere Monday — this is the boldest makeup look that we’ve seen from the star, leading us to believe that she’s totally embracing the space age theme.

It’s safe to say we’re excited to see what she tries next.

What are your thoughts about her look? Are you willing to try blue lipstick now that she has? Sound off below!
