Never let it be said that Lupita Nyong’o doesn’t know how to dress for an occasion. I’m still in awe of that pearl Oscar dress (even if the pearls did end up being fake), and she did not disappoint for the LA premiere of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens.’ All of the cast was there, from veterans Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher to newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, and Adam Driver. Check out all the red carpet pics after the break and tell me what you think of Lupita’s gown: Love It or Hate It?
Lupita wore an Alexandre Vauthier gown that was accessorized with over 30 carats of Chopard jewels including a pear-shaped emerald and diamond ring in addition to breathtaking fancy-cut diamond earrings. OMG. Lupita also wore a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes. She explained her frock choice:
I thought I’d bring the galaxy with me.”
I think she succeeded! Lupita shared an Instagram picture of some of her accessories:
Daisy is a newcomer to red carpet events, but she looked gorgeous as well in a custom Chloé silk dress and Christian Louboutin Rivierina pumps. Love it!
Check out the gallery below to see all the other stars who turned out. Just click on a picture to enlarge it and see who’s in that particular photo. I wonder what it was like for George Lucas, who was there last night. He’s admitted that, for him, ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ was like “a bad breakup” since Disney opted not to involve him in the movies after buying the rights from him. Disney certainly paid for the privilege with $4 billion, and he had to have known that was a possibility, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy for him to see the franchise he created move on without him. It’s incredibly gracious for him to attend! Now tell me: what do you think of Lupita’s dress?
