*Lupita Nyong’o dropped the mic on yet another red carpet with her undeniable style.

She showed up at the Cannes Film Festival’s Opening Ceremony Wednesday in a “grasshopper green” gown, which doubled as a sentimental tribute to Africa.

Nyong’o selected a custom pleated Gucci chiffon design featuring a mini capelet and embellished hand-painted floral crystals along the plunging neckline and at the waist.

She topped off the look with diamond drop Chopard earrings and a coordinating double-strand head band.

“It’s #GrasshopperGreen for @festivaldecannes opening night,” she shared of her ensemble on Instagram. “Thank you @Chopard @Gucci and Uganda’s women for the hair inspiration. #NseneneSeason #cannes2015.”

Note: Nsenene (in the above hashtag) is the Luganda name for grasshopper. The insects are a cultural delicacy in Uganda and are in season right now.
