The red carpet premiere for The Last Jedi was a fantastic event, filled with celebrities, a giant Imperial Walker, some very lucky fans, and of course, our favourite actresses! Here’s a look at some of the red carpet fashion from the event.
While on the red carpet, the Star Wars celebrities all shared details of their personal experiences filming The Last Jedi. Although that is certainly the most important topic of conversation, I do personally believe that the fashion inspiration of Star Wars goes beyond the characters on screen. Here at The Kessel Runway, a driving principle behind our content is that what we wear is a channel for self expression, and admiring their respective fashion styles is part of the appreciation of them as artists and people.
Daisy Ridley – Rey
With countless fan sites following her fashion appearances, Daisy is always one to watch on the red carpet. I love her strapless dress accented by stars – it’s fun to see celebrities taking direct inspiration from the films. The sequined dress is by Monse – the creative directors Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim also helm Oscar de la Renta. Check out this video of Daisy twirling in her dress and more great photos here – gorgeous! According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Monse dress will be available to buy from Moda Operandi and Neiman Marcus – for US$8,600.
Stylist Samantha McMillen paired the dress with silver strappy heels by Christian Louboutin – a great nod to the recent footwear collaboration. Daisy’s makeup was by makeup artist Kara Yoshimotobua, her nails by Deborah Lippmann, while her chic updo was by hairstylist Robert Vetica and accented with metallic hair clips by Sylvain Le Hen. To accessorise the look, Daisy wore Selim Mouzannar earrings and Penny Preville Starburst Warp rings.
Gwendoline Christie – Captain Phasma
Gwendoline always seems to really embrace her Star Wars character, so it was no surprise to see her wearing this custom silver gown by Gucci. A fabulous piece that really evokes the presence of Captain Phasma, it is perfect inspiration for an ‘everyday cosplay’ concept.
Kelly Marie Tran – Rose Tico
The lovely newcomer wore a stunning red strapless dress with train by Thai Nguyen Atelier. Check out more photos of her gown on the Thai Nguyen Atelier Instagram, and the Disney Studios Instagram (which Kelly took over for the evening event – check out this fun video of her friends reaction to her amazing dress).
Lupita Nyong’o – Maz Kanata
No stranger to the world of fashion, Lupita always looks amazing on the red carpet. Her stunning green strapless dress is by Halpern, with footwear by Jimmy Choo – check out more photos of her fabulous outfit.
Laura Dern – Amilyn Holdo
Laura wore a strapless black lace gown by Vivienne Westwood Couture, and coordinating lace boots by Christian Louboutin. A part of me was hoping to see Laura wear a purple dress, but that may be a little too close to her costume for a red carpet event.
Kathleen Kennedy – Lucasfilm President
Kathleen was looking sharp and well dressed as always, in a black jacket and pants.
Rayne Roberts – Creative Executive at Lucasfilm
Rayne wore a silver grey dress with shoulder strap details and dangling silver earrings – so gorgeous.
Carrie Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd (who plays Kaydel Ko Connix) was also there, though sadly the StarWars.com team didn’t interview her on the live stream. She was wearing a stunning silver dress by Tom Ford, with an up-do hairstyle by Christian Wood, in reference to Princess Leia. Even her silver bracelet reminds me of the Lapponia bracelet worn by Leia during the medal ceremony in A New Hope. Sharp eyed fans recognised the ring she wore – Carrie wore the same ring to The Force Awakens premiere. An absolutely beautiful way to pay tribute to her mother.
