Lupita Nyong’o Reveals the Metallic Breastplate She Wore at Tonys 2023 Was Molded From Her Body

Lupita Nyong’o celebrated her body at the 2023 Tony Awards. The actress graced the Sunday, June 11, red carpet in a metallic breastplate.

The eye-catching piece was designed by Misha Japanwala and featured a realistic molding of the 40-year-old Black Panther star’s chest.

Nyong’o paired the top with a tailored black blazer and high-waisted trousers with a flared hem.

The Mexico City native opened up about the style statement via Instagram, calling the ensemble a “shameless out-of-body experience.”

“In her artistic process, she creates a realistic and true record of a person’s body as an act of resistance and celebration, 

and an insistence on being allowed to exist freely in our bodies,” Nyong’o wrote.

. I think that act of surrendering and allowing our bodies to simply be, is such a beautiful and powerful thing.”
