Stepping out for an evening of fun, Lupita Nyong'o made a special appearance at DuJour magazine's latest issue party in New York City on Wednesday (February 19).

The "12 Years a Slave" beauty donned a green-patterned dress with matching heels as she smiled and posed for the shutterbugs on the red carpet.

During a recent interview, Miss Nyong'o announced she was ready for some normalcy following her outstanding performance in the award-winning film.

"I have a very ostrich mentality," Lupita explained. "I feel like I have my head in the sand so no one can see me."

Also discussing the nerve-wrecking events she experienced over the past few months the 30-year-old actress stated, "The Hollywood Film Awards were really stressful. It was the biggest press line I'd ever seen."

"It was difficult to orient myself, but there are familiar faces now, so it becomes less daunting," she added.
