Why Star Wars’ Lupita Nyong’o is a Fashion Force

Last night, Lupita Nyong’o lit up the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in a light-reflecting, low-cut back, couture dress signed Alexandre Vauthier. The Oscar-winning actress topped off the high-octane glamour look with Chopard jewels.

Nyong’o, who stars in the seventh installment of the Star Wars franchise, is no stranger to best-dressed lists. The actress is known to gravitate towards jewel-toned ensembles and bedazzling dresses. She made a splash when she glided down the red carpet at the 2014 Oscars in one of her most iconic looks—a powder blue embellished Prada gown. Her sartorial choices are always on point, which is why we think she would look stunning in one of Yousef Aljasmi’s show-stopping creations.

Here, we serve you some holiday dressing inspiration à la Lupita Nyong’o; take a page out of her formal attire style book with our roundup of her best red carpet looks. May the fashion force be with you.
