10 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Premiere Outfits That Really Stood Out — PHOTOS
Looks like the galaxy isn't so far away anymore: a powerful force struck Tinseltown last night, and this time without light sabers. At the LA premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it was killer fashion — not space battles — that prevailed. From the film's buzz-worthy cast to celebrity attendees, everyone was fair game when it came to dressing to the nines.
Traditionally, the Star Wars franchise has been associated with a limited style menu of jedi robes and stormtrooper suits. Not exactly runway masterpieces — that is, unless you're Opening Ceremony and have mastered the art of transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary. With the highly anticipated release of The Force Awakens on the horizon, the fashion industry has started to embrace their galactic voices. Force 4 Fashion invited top designers to create couture-worthy Star Wars ensembles while Forever 21 unveiled a collection of wearable space gear.
It's no surprise that film's world premiere would also prove to be a stylish affair. The stars rocked an eclectic mix of styles on the red carpet — sequins, frills, cut-outs, you name it, it's there. While Star Wars: The Force Awakens won't be hitting theaters until next week, tease your inner fangirl with the ten best sartorial moments at the premiere — and get that popcorn bucket ready.
1. Lupita Nyong'o
Leave it to Lupita Nyong'o to not only dazzle with her golden smile, but with a stunning Alexandre Vautheir gown. Glitter from head to toe evidently translates to being the galaxy's best dressed.
2. Daisy Ridley
Newcomer Daisy Ridley is about to embark on a journey to stardom — and luckily, she already knows how to dress the part. Her choice weapon? A dreamy Chloé Atelier number complete with tulle and lace.
3. Gwendoline Christie
The secret to perfecting that air of (space) royalty? An Oscar de la Renta dress — heavy emphasis on the organza and velvet ribbon halter neck. This is what happens when industrial Captain Phasma meets chic styling.
4. Sarah Hyland
Haley Dunphy all grown up! Sarah Hyland took a nod to the monochromatic Star Wars theming in a sequined KaufmanFranco dress.
5. Elizabeth Banks
Meanwhile, Elizabeth Banks opted for a floral splash amidst the sea of gunmetal grays and piercing blacks. Her off-the-shoulder Elie Saab gown is all around enchanting.
6. Sofia Vergara
Sofia Vergara captured the red carpet by storm last night thanks to her Princess Leia hair buns, proving that yes, even celebrities have their fangirl moments.
7. Janelle Monae
Janelle Monae went modern and sleek in a gold, two-piece ensemble — perhaps a sartorial reference to CP30?
8. Jaime King
For Jaime King, a futuristic frock was the way to go — and without a doubt, that cascading white satin is ultimate dress goals.
Never in a million years would I have imagined to combine turtlenecks and Star Wars — but if I had to, I would execute it Zendaya-style.
10. Joseph Gordon-Levitt
As if I needed another reason to worship the altar of Joseph Gordon-Levitt... am I really surprised that JGL would show up in homemade Yoda attire? Not at all. And even slathered in green face paint, JGL still holds a special place in my heart.
