the Golden Globes or SAG Awards -- which makeup look did you like better?

Lupita Nyong'o is so inspiring in her enthusiasm for making a red-carpet colour and style statement -- and a different statement each time. For instance, at the 2015 Golden Globes she was all petal-pretty in Giambattista Valli, with full hair and violet-hued makeup; at the 2015 SAG Awards, she was graphic and gorgeous in Elie Saab and vibrant red lipstick.

I can't quite decide which I like better. I love the romance of the 2015 Golden Globes look, and Lupita looks so delicate in that pretty Giambattista Valli frock. And of course the fashion world melted when Lupita wore those geek-chic Stella McCartney specs on stage (and again at the SAG Awards).

Yet I think the more structured, deep-vee Elie Saab gown she wore at the 2015 SAG Awards suits Lupita's athletic frame just a smidge more -- in my fantasy life, I'd be more likely to wear that one. But I still can't decide which overall look I prefer. Am I lame to declare a tie? What do you think?

The best part of Lupita Nyong'o's Golden Globes 2015 makeup is that the eyeshadow she wore is from a new eyeshadow palette her makeup artist Nick Barose designed for Lancôme, for whom Lupita is famously a celebrity face. The star named the Bright Eyes Color Design 5-Pan Eyeshadow Palette "Jacaranda Bloom." Image via Lupita Nyong'o on Instagram.

For Lupita's 2015 SAG Awards makeup, Nike Barose went with 40's inspired glamour; her Lancôme L'Absolu lipstick in Caprice rather nicely matches the splashes of red in her gown.
