Lupita Nyong’o took to Instagram to share some personal behind-the-scenes photos of her show-stopping Oscars dress.

The Black Panther star revealed her one shoulder, white feathered Oscar de la Renta Fall 2019 gown on Instagram with a simple caption: “Light as a feather. #Oscars” She wore her hair in a twisted updo and added a pretty crystal hair pin on one side for even more glam.

Nyongo’s stylist Erlanger pointed out the “diamond details” that completed the actress’ eye-catching ensemble.

The duo selected diamond Forevermark studs and drop earrings, along with two Forevermark diamond rings, a Tyler Ellis clutch and Roger Vivier sandals to complete the look.

Nyong’o’s bold red carpet choices throughout the past year landed her on PEOPLE’s list of 10 most stylish stars on the red carpet in a special red carpet issue.

“We have really embraced the powerful side of Lupita in the last year, shifting our focus to strong, sharp silhouettes,” Erlanger told us of her evolution. After all, “not everyone can pull off a cobalt fringe gown, but she owns it.”

The 91st Academy Awards are broadcasting live from Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 24 at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT on ABC.
