Never one to miss out on an industry event, Lupita Nyong’o got all gussied up and headed over to the Shrine Exposition Center in Los Angeles for the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards earlier tonight (January 18).

All decked out and primped to perfection in gold Fred Leighton jewelry, the "12 Years a Slave" starlet smiled for the cameras and mingled with fellow famous folks before strolling inside to find her seat.

Considered by many to be the most desirable trophy for bona fide artists, the SAG “Actor” will be coveted by all nominees.
