Actress Lupita Nyong’o proved once again why she is a red carpet darling this Saturday (Dec. 9) at the Star Wars: The Last Jedi screening premiere in Los Angeles. The Oscar-winner returned to the spotlight working the room in a thigh-high split emerald green sequined dress by Halpern and a dewy beauty beat and fuschia purple lip by Nick Barose. She finished off the look with a gorgeous tapered afro styled up by celeb stylist and natural hair expert Vernon Francois.

To get the look, Vernon shared that he used the Leave~In conditioner ($28) from his own sulfate-free Vernon Francois collection for hydration and protection along with Styling~Cream ($25) for added volume and Dazz~Ling Spritz Shine Spray ($24) for shine. The resulting look was textured perfection.
