Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o has revealed that she designed her own prom dress. The '12 Years a Slave' beauty says that although looking back now she sees the design was "ridiculous", she loved the end result at the time and was amazed by the unique creation. She commented: ''It was a velvet miniskirt with a matching little top and an iridescent silver translucent fabric that flowed to the ground. It was kind of ridiculous, but it was fabulous at the time.''

Speaking on the subject of finding the perfect dress for big red carpet events, Lupita says that she works with her stylist for hours on end, trying on different dresses until they find the right fit. She admits that the process was hard for her at the beginning but she has enjoyed the experience so far and now knows what it's like to fall in love with a dress: ''We'd just try, try, try, try, try, try, try. At first it was very daunting, but I ended up really having fun with it. It's quite scary when you fall in love with a dress, because it's nothing to do with your brain. It's like a gut reaction.''

The actress is the new face of beauty brand Lancome and she says she is very proud to take on the role because they have a wide vision of what is beautiful and she really appreciates that:  ''It's not about conforming to an already established idea of what is beautiful, and I like that.''
