“When I think of Star Wars, one of the biggest and most important film franchises of all time, the pressure is certainly on,” Micaela told Vogue.com. “We knew that we wanted to push the envelope and really go for a gown that had not only the ‘wow’ factor, but felt appropriate for the theme of the film.”
With this kind of outfit, the accessories Lupita Nyong’o wore were scaled way down, so as not to create a cluttered appearance.

“My direction for her wardrobe for the tour has been all about subtle edge,” Erlanger said. “I believe accessories should punctuate an outfit.”
So where did Micaela Erlinger find the stunning dress Lupita Nyong’o wore to the premiere?
“Combing through the collections on Vogue Runway and even looking at the archives,” Erlinger said. “When I saw this gown, I knew it would be a contender—the encrusted crystals, the strong shoulder, the banding at the waist. It just had all the right factors. I knew it would be flawless on her.”
