The LBD with LEDs

It’s hard not to like Hollywood darling Lupita Nyong’o, but her recent appearances in a mod cut black dress studded in LED lights has won over our hearts and minds at LED Waves.

Appearing on the set of The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, and again at the red carpet premiere for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the actress glittered in a Zac Posen number featuring 500 twinkling diodes. The LED light sequence was programmed by 30 young members of Made with Code: a Google initiative supporting girls to enter the male-dominated Computer Science field.

Even at first glance we were de-light-ed by this look on Nyong’o. We love it even more knowing that it came from the hard work of some of the future faces of LED engineering!
