The Event: The Star Wars "Force 4 Fashion" red-carpet launch event, where the actress was joined by her Force Awakens co-stars Daisy Ridley and John Boyega. She also was seen in the dress during her appearance on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

Why We Dig: When it comes to making a fashion statement, you can always count on Nyong'o to take a red-carpet risk. The Oscar winner did just that with this unique LED look that was coded by girls around the country — she lit up the room, quite literally. To complement the flashy ensemble, makeup artist Nick Barose applied a metallic eyeliner and rosy lipstick on the star's face. Guess we don't have to worry about her joining the dark side.
