Lupita Nyong'o is gearing up for her biggest role of the year in what will probably be the biggest film of the year, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." Before it hits theaters in December, though, she's keeping herself busy by landing her second cover of Vogue. NBD.
She told the mag about her love affair with couture, saying "I didn’t know the power of couture until I tried on a couture dress. It made me cry."
She definitely understands its power now since she's quickly ascended to fashion icon status, landing on best dressed lists for almost every award show, snagging fashion campaigns, and of course, landing magazine covers.
It's no surprise, either, since she looks good in just about everything (actually, probably literally everything). Her Vogue spread is vast and varied with her wearing samples from the fall couture collections, and each photo is more stunning than the last.
While she's basically sworn to secrecy on all things "Star Wars," she dishes a little bit in her "73 Questions" video, admitting she prefers Han Solo to Luke Skywalker, R2-D2 to C-3PO and says she wore "more than 168 " CGI dots while filming the movie. And yes, she "like[s] specificity."
