No, it's not news that Lupita Nyong'o always looks perfect and wears bright colors really, really well. But she seriously drove that point home this past Saturday at the Maui Film Festival, where she wore a very fitting Fausto Puglisi A-line mini dress in a vivid, cerulean blue, covered in shimmering gold palm trees.

The dress was perfect on her, and perfect for the occasion, which, um, sounds like the best film festival ever because it's in freaking Maui. Here, Nyong'o looks relaxed and happy not only because she's in Hawaii, but also probably because she won the festival's "Rainmaker Award."

It also just seems impossible to look unhappy in a Fausto Puglisi dress, as many others, like Lena Dunham and Cate Blanchett, can definitely attest.
