Viewers expected Lupita Nyong'o to impress on the red carpet at the 87th Academy Awards on Sunday, but she manages to blow even the highest expectations out of the water.
Showing up in a Calvin Klein dress made from 6,000 pearls, Nyong'o floated through the red carpet and onto the stage to present the night's first award like a goddess of the sea.
Given that 6,000 pearls is a large amount of pearls, particularly for a dress, the Internet at large reacted accordingly.
We've gathered our favorite reactions below.
Okay, let's give Lupita Best Supporting Actress for saying the pearl dress is "actually quite comfortable" with a straight face.

Lupita Nyong'o's dress cost a lot of clams. Shut up. People are starving for oysters. Stop being so shellfish.
