Out of This World: Cast Sparkles on the Red Carpet at Star Wars: The Last Jedi Premiere

There’s no dark side to this red carpet.
The ladies of Star Wars: The Last Jedi came out in full force for the movie’s world premiere at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Saturday, dazzling in looks inspired by the beloved series.
Daisy Ridley, who again plays Rey in the latest installment, took the celestial theme literally, donning a dark strapless Monse dress adored with sequins and white star embellishments. Starting at the thigh, the 25-year-old’s floor-length dress became fringe — which showed off glimpses of her legs and strappy metallic heels as she made her way into the screening.
And because Lupita Nyong’o voices the animated Maz Kanata, the actress took full advantage of showing her face — and her legs! — at the movie’s premiere. The Oscar-winner turned heads in a seafoam green dress by Halpern. The strapless number featured a high slit that flaunted her frame — and a touch of purple lipstick sealed the deal.

Billie Lourd was a can’t-miss in metallic, donning a sleeveless silver Tom Ford gown on the red carpet. Her hair was styled in an elaborate braided bun, reminiscent of a look her late mother Carrie Fisher wore in the film’s first installment (now known as Episode IV), which many fans noted on Twitter.
(It’s not the first time Lourd has paid tribute to her mom with her red carpet style – in April, she also donned a white Tom Ford gown with full sleeves that also was an homage to Princess Leia’s style in the early films, and she has said that her Scream Queens earmuffs were intentionally Leia-esque as well.)
The Last Jedi marks the final appearance in the iconic franchise for Fisher, who wrapped filming for the movie last year prior to her December 2016 death. Lourd, who plays Lieutenant Connix, walked the red carpet alongside her father, Hollywood talent agent Bryan Lourd.
Gwendoline Christie didn’t let her 6’3″ frame stop her from rocking some beige heels along with her Gucci gown. The silver dress with long-sleeves featured a high slit for Captain Phasma to give a peek of what’s under her armor.
The eighth Star Wars installment also sees the return of Mark Hamill, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson and Andy Serkis.
