Small Screen Girl Confession: I’m not a Star Wars fan. Growing up, the movies were the endless obstacle between me and my cartoons. Fast forward a decade or two, and I still don’t know the difference between the Millennium Falcon and a Death Star. And is a Sith Lord a fancy Darth Vader?
However, I finally found a reason to love the franchise, and it’s definitely not because of the carpet-bombing of promotional product tie-ins (How did survive without Star Wars-themed tea-infusers, fruit, barbecue utensils, computers or condoms?). It’s star Lupita Nyong’o’s one-woman parade of fashion that she has brought to nearly every promotional event and premiere for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" from Mexico City to London and beyond. From sweetly simple to futuristic fierceness, a fashion icon she is.
