Lupita Nyong'o Rocks Canada Goose Jacket On 'Star Wars' Set

Can we call Lupita Nyong'o an honourary Canadian?

On Oct. 17, the Oscar-winner posted an Instagram pic of herself sporting a Canada Goose jacket on the set of "Star Wars: Episode VII." Lupita captioned the pic, "Geeking out! #SWVII."

Cool Canadian fashion staple aside, the "12 Years A Slave" star was sporting some geeky gear too: a hat with "VII" emblazoned across it and a Han Solo Stormtrooper figurine clutched in her arms. (Curiously, the style maven also had a piece of unidentifiable green gunk stuck in her teeth—perhaps a clue to her "Star Wars" character's plotline!)

However it was back to red carpet business on the weekend, when the 31-year-old Kenyan stepped out for the Sindika Dokolo Art Foundation dinner in London wearing a sexy LBD that accentuated her svelte figure.

In June it was announced that the actress was cast in the anticipated movie, although there are no details about who she's playing or what her storyline is.
