Darth Vader cardigan DIY
Instagram user creativelylori has shared a neat DIY project – turning a Darth Vader sweatshirt into a button-up cardigan! A great idea of turning an item that is slightly too small into something versatile – check out her work on Instagram here.
Possible new Rey hairstyle?
Daisy Ridley shared a new video on Instagram, where she is fitting in a workout between filming scenes for Episode VIII. In the video, Daisy has a pillowcase tied around her hairstyle, and she wrote “Ran to t😉the gym between different set ups so wore a pillowcase on my head to protect my REY HAIRSTYLE from Instagram’s gaze“. We can only wait and see if Rey will have a new hairstyle for fans to copy – watch the video on Instagram here.
Daisy Ridley in Preen by Thornton Bregazzi
Daisy Ridley shared a photo from the Episode 8 wrap party, where she wore a dress by Preen by Thornton Bregazzi! While the dress wasn’t from the well-known Preen x Star Wars collection, it’s still exciting to see the connection. I recognised the black/red/white dress straight away, having also been worn by Scarlett Johansson to the G’Day USA Gala / AACTA International Awards on January 31, 2015. Check out Daisy Ridley’s photo on Instagram here.
Carrie Fisher and Billie Lourd at the AB FAB premiere
Carrie Fisher and her daughter Billie Lourd (who played Lieutenant Connix in The Force Awakens) attended the red carpet premiere of the ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ film in London. The pair looked amazing, and were of course accompanied by Carrie’s dog Gary Fisher – see photos here.
