Star of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Lupita Nyong’o appears on the January 2016 cover of ELLE UK. Photographed by Kai Z Feng and styled by Anne Marie Curtis, the Oscar-winning actress wears a Louis Vuitton dress on the cover. She also wears a natural hairstyle including coils and a shimmering makeup look.
In her interview, Lupita opens up about her role in the ‘Star Wars’ film as Maz Kanata. “The opportunity to play a CGI character for me was the opportunity to not be limited by my physical circumstances. I could experience being bigger or smaller, something totally different to who I am. And of course it’s in a galaxy far, far away.”
