Lupita Nyong'o, who plays Maz Kanata in the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, has always been on-point with fashion. But this time, she quite literally lit up the room at the Star Wars Force 4 Fashion event in New York on Wednesday.

Her dress packed serious bling, decked out in LED lights that bleeped on and off in random patterns.“This is a Zac Posen collaboration with Google for an initiative they have called Made With Code, where they encourage young girls to try out computer science as a possible career, and this is how science can intersect with fashion," Lupita told media at the site.

What more will come of this project? We're foreseeing sleeves with an iPhone interface and dresses that change colour at the tap of a button.
