Daisy Ridley wore a Calvin Klein trash bag to the UK ‘Last Jedi’ premiere

Star Wars Episode VIII The Last Jedi UK film premiere

Here are some photos from last night’s London premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, aka The Film That Will Single-Handedly Rescue the Sh-tty Box Office Receipts of 2017. I don’t even have to look it up – I’m sure The Last Jedi is on track to make a bajillion dollars. In the first month. So why, perchance, is the cast still being forced into this crazy international hustle? If ever there’s a moment to just sit back and let the commercials do their work, it’s right now. But no, the cast flew en masse to London for the premiere.

I do think Daisy Ridley has started phoning it in a little bit with her style. She wore this Calvin Klein dress to the London premiere and I loathe this on her. First of all: enough with the black! She’s a young woman and she thinks black makes her look chic. She could stand to lighten things up. Second of all, this fabric is a trash bag tragedy. She looks like she’s wearing a repurposed Hefty bag. Third thing: I really dislike Daisy’s skirt lengths during this promotional tour. I get the feeling that she’s been aiming for tea-length, but it’s not working out, and now everything looks so awkward on her. Bonus Mark Hamill!

Laura Dern wore Alexander McQueen. I mean… I sort of understand this, but not with the black boots. If you’re going to wear a gown which would look more at home at the Golden Globes, fine, that’s your call. But own that and style accordingly. Don’t wear black boots with your frilly, ruffled, pink gown.

Gwendoline Christie is so tall and regal that she makes this Iris Van Herpen sack dress look like the most fabulous thing in the world.

I totally forgot that Benicio del Toro is in this. He seems confused by it as well.

    I like Daisy’s dress a lot. At least it fits. Her hair on the other hand is not cute at all. She should have it all slicked back into a pony tail.

    Out of all the women I love Gwen’s the most. I think because it is transparent in certain places it keeps her from looking like Ms. Roper.

    Laura’s shoes don’t go with that dress, but I like the dress.

    No realy thoughts on the men. John at least stand out because of his blue velvet jacket.

    • velourazure says:

      Is this a new thing or something I just noticed? All dudes fancy jackets seem 3 sizes too small. Why does anyone want his crotch prominently displayed while wearing a tuxedo? see John Boyega.

      • Jussie says:

        That’s how tuxedo’s are meant to be cut.

        Pretty much everyone who doesn’t get them custom tailored by a real professional is wearing the jacket far too loose, but they’re meant to be snug at the waist and not totally cover up the top of the pants.

        Boyega’s is unbuttoned here so it’s a bit too open, but in the pictures where it’s buttoned it’s a perfect fit.

  2. Lucy says:

    I don’t know, I kinda like Daisy’s trash bag. She looks JUST like Keira Knightley in here, though. It’s scary.

  3. Slowsnow says:

    I really like Daisy’s dress. I enjoy non precious, experimental materials.

    • minx says:

      Yeah, I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I like it too. Smh

    • Kata says:

      Me too. I would prefer balck shoes though.

      And you can never wear black too much.

    • Charlie says:

      I want to like Daisy’s dress – she looks great in it – but that fabric is tragic. Some years ago, my daughter’s art school threw themselves a “prom” and challenged everyone to make their outfits from unconventional materials. Daisy’s trash bag dress would have been right on theme and looked great next to my daughter’s hot pink duck-tape dress!

  4. Margo S. says:

    Bencio kills me. Looks so messed. I love him lol!

  5. smcollins says:

    I kinda like it, but then I kinda don’t. I don’t like where it wraps around her neck and the material looks too wrinkled, but other than that I think she looks nice. She has a gorgeous face. I love seeing Isaac here (he wasn’t at the LA premiere, was he?). That grey in his hair is really working for him. I’m so excited to see the movie. Can’t wait!

  6. Mia4s says:

    I always forget how teeny tiny Oscar Isaac is! Handsome as hell though!

    Gwendoline Christie, we are not worthy. That is all.

    Mark Hamill looks fantastic, I hope (if he wants it) this movie brings more live acting outside Star Wars for him. He’s a terrific character actor.

    • Applecore says:

      Have you seen Brigsby Bear? Mark Hamill is great in it and it’s a delightfully unique and funny movie.

  7. Beth says:

    The trash bag dress actually looks better than everyone elses dress. It just looks a little uncomfortable. Black is a common color to wear, I’m not trying to look chic whenever I wear it

  8. SM says:

    I am here for Oscar. But John Boyega’s look – smooth!

    • still_sarah says:

      But why is Oscar’s partner Elvira wearing a dress that is longer than her coat? I know it was probably cold but go for a wrap shawl instead. That’s all I’ve got.

      • M says:

        Because she’s pregnant, it’s freezing as f**k in London and she’s not an actress and feels no need to shiw off…

      • Veronica says:

        It’s 40°F/4°C there, you big British babies. I woke up to 17°F/-8°C when I left the house this morning in Northeastern America, and we’re not even in the worst of our winter yet! ;P

      • Mia4s says:

        @M are you sure she is pregnant? Their kid was just born in April. I mean, it’s possible, or she might just still have some pregnancy weight on (which is 100000% fine).

  9. Erinn says:

    Like the trashbag, honestly. And she looks pumped. I think it’s cute.

  10. Eliza says:

    She’s in a space movie, so black and metallic on the red carpet. Lots of ladies theme dress their promotional tours.

    I think both black dresses looked underwhelming on her. She’s very pretty but the dresses are just there. Maybe the hair is really pulling the whole look down further, idk, but it feels line phoning it in, but I get the sense she’s actually trying.

    • Veronica says:

      That’s what I assumed she was going for, too – a gentle nod to the movies’ most famous villain.

      I suspect the issue is her height. She’s 5’7″, which isn’t short for a woman, but it isn’t tall either. Those ankle dresses can sometimes be a tad overwhelming on anybody who isn’t 5’9″ or bigger.

  11. Anon says:

    Trash bag dress: yes.

    Hairdo: no. It makes her look like she is wearing leftover “elf” ears from The Lord of the Rings.

    • shlockOftheNEw says:

      I always “think” that “some hair out” of an updo would be casual looking, but it’s reads “Amish” in every photo.

  12. Mei says:

    Ankle length dresses are quite ‘in’ at the moment, I think we’ll see quite a few more over the awards season.

  13. Des says:

    “Oh how much like a trashbag could it possibly look?” I wondered, clicking on the link.

    Very. It very much looks like a trashbag.

    Also, I like the black boots with the pink frilly dress.

  14. Veronica says:

    Honestly, out of the whole cast, I think John Boyega is the only one who really has an eye and a fondness for fashion. He’s the one showing up in velvet, unique colors, etc. I think Daisy defaults to black because it’s an easy color to wear, and she’s not particularly stylish on her own. (Not an insult! Some people just aren’t into fashion.)

    I feel like OF COURSE Oscar Isaac has a partner named Elvira. Of course he does. God is he aging well.

    • Frosty Flakes says:

      Unlike Benicio del Toro…

      • Veronica says:

        oh my god, I know. And it makes me so sad because I had such a crush on him when he was younger. I guess those wild years eventually do catch up with you.

      • Mia4s says:

        Yeah Benicio is showing every one of his 50 years. He’s definitely been “enjoying” them.

        Although in fairness when your Star Wars Latino male representation so far has been Jimmy Smits, Oscar Isaac, and Diego Luna?…well the bar has been set a bit unfairly high. 😉

  15. Frosty Flakes says:

    Really like the trash bag dress!

  16. CynicalAnn says:

    John Boyega for the win!

  17. browniecakes says:

    Loved what Daisy wore for the much warmer LA premiere,, the dress with the star appliques.

  18. magz says:

    Where is Adam?

    • GreenTurtle says:

      He’s at the event, too. You can find pix of him on the Last Jedi review post on Laineygossip. Fittingly, he’s wearing all black.

  19. Other Renee says:

    The Hefty bag looks ridiculous. Only the men look good but I scroll quickly through their pics because unless a man is wearing something unique and silly, their suits all look the same to me.

  20. Penfold says:

    Mark Hamill looks fit and healthy! Love it.

    Oscar Isaac- woah boy. So fine. I love the little grey hair coming in. He’s going to look great with silver hair. (Just wish he would’ve buttoned his jacket here)

    Gwen- dress kind of looks like a shower curtain, but she pulls it off.

    I think this might be the only movie I see in the theatres this year- the last was was great fun to see with a crowd somim looking foward to this one, too 🙂

  21. Jag says:

    Love the color black on her, but don’t like the detail on the bottom of the dress.

    John Boyega’s suit is a bit too tight, but he looks good otherwise.

  22. tealily says:

    It’s somehow very “Star Wars” though.

  23. Digital Unicorn (aka Betti) says:

    Am only here for dishy Domnhall and his is looking fine!

  24. Lauren says:

    I love Daisy’s look here! I saw the last jedi today at the movies, it was really good though I cried a few times specially during the ending titles when the in loving memory of our princess came out.

  25. Eve V says:

    All the men look pretty good, but John Boyega is absolutely killing it. He looks amazing.
    I really do not like Daisy’s look, at all. The dress truly does look like a trash bag and those shoes look cheap as hell and don’t go with the dress one bit. I also don’t like the black boots with the frilly, pink dress. I’m sure she was just trying to give the pink dress some edge, but it just looks mismatched instead.

  26. Jussie says:

    I really like the dress. It’s leaned into the trash bag look with the ruched hem. It would be better on someone with a bit more attitude, but it’s cool.
