Lupita Nyong’o Shines in Illuminated Zac Posen Dress

Cover girl and IT girl Lupita Nyong'o is making her television rounds promoting the latest installment in the Star Wars series, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." During her appearance on "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah," she didn't give away any hints into the movie's story line or any details of her character; however, she did light up the studio -- literally. The actress wore a dress lined with LED lights from designer Zac Posen's Spring 2016 collection. The designer collaborated with Google's "Made With Code" initiative, an effort to encourage girls to study STEM majors. The dresses' light animations, designed by girls around the world, can change colors and patterns by using a programming system created by Google called Blockly.

If you haven't seen the Academy Award winner on the January covers of ESSENCE magazine, ELLE UK and United Airlines' luxury and lifestyle magazine, Rhapsody, you can see her in the Broadway play "Eclipse" beginning February 23rd.
