Lupita Nyong’o’s Star Wars Premiere Dress Was Too Magical

It was the world premiere for the new Star Wars film in LA last night. And Lupita Nyong’o looked simply sensational on the red carpet.

The 32-year-old actress, who plays Maz Kanata in the seventh installment of the hit movie franchise, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, went all out with her dress selection and dazzled in a gorgeous Alexandre Vauthier gown.

At first glance, we thought that her frock must have held magical powers – the way the colourful sparkles kept catching the light made it look like she’d snuck some LED lights up in that dress. Are we right?!

But actually, the glints of colour were all down to the pretty mirrored embellishment that covered Lupita’s floorlength frock. Stunning.


And as if her dress wasn’t enough of an attention-grabber, Lupita also decided to accessorise with over 30 carats of Chopard jewellery, including diamond drop earrings and a diamond and emerald ring.

‘I thought I’d bring the galaxy with me’, she told the crowd during the film’s red carpet stream. She sure did that…


Christian Louboutin heels topped off her striking ensemble, and when she span round, we were able to appreciate Lupita’s sexy backless design in full.

This was only the first Star Wars premiere… We can’t wait to see what she wears at the others…
