Academy Award Best Supporting Actress winner Lupita Nyong’o not only took home the coveted golden statue last night for her role in Best Picture “12 Years A Slave,” but we think she’s at the forefront of one of Spring’s hottest mane trends. Yes, her short Natural was epic—modern, shapely and flattering—but it was the slim, 18K yellow gold and diamond-studded Fred Leighton headband that added the perfect finishing touch to the star’s signature crop. Talk about taking the old-school “tiara” to a chic (and very fierce) new level! We’re thinking “hair jewelry” —proven to be especially flattering on short hair—will be making a mane statement this spring…just in time for prom and wedding season. Don’t you agree?
