WHAT to do when you're one of the world's most photographed women? When you're this close to scoring Oscar gold as a Best Supporting Actress?

'It girl' Lupita Nyong'o left the chilly climes of her Brooklyn home behind and jetted to The Rock's cashmere-chic Round Hill Hotel and Villas. Indeed, her choice of destination — Ralph Lauren's favourite getaway — could not be more ideal, as it was Nyong'o's defining red-carpet appearance in the Lauren vermilion-red cape dress that launched the actress to instant fashion fame.

The Oscar nominee, who is tipped to win the Academy Award next month for her supporting role in 12 Years A Slave, enjoyed a four-night stay at the Round and was quite taken with the Jamaican hospitality and the hotel's renowned charm.
