As I have said now several times December is chock full of blockbuster film premieres. I am getting really excited to see what these casts have in store for their big premieres. I have the most excitement about what the cast of Star Wars: The Last Jedi will wear. I have already made my wishes for the smaller international premieres for Daisy Ridley and Lupita Nyong’o so now all I have left are the big premieres in LA and London where I am expecting major star turnout. It’s is because of these premieres I decided to make my calendar year for my blog December to November for consideration for Best Dressed of the Year. These are most likely going to be the first looks that I will consider for Best Dressed of 2018, despite the fact that the red carpet will take place in 2017. Daisy Ridley is the one who I am most excited to see really knock it out of the ballpark during this tour. Her first tour was one that really made her one to watch and this one will be her chance to solidify her fashionista status. Daisy caught the eye of Chanel when she first burst onto the scene and I am really excited to see what she will bring during this tour. Couture has never been something Daisy has been afraid of, but that last time she wore couture was for the Oscars last year. While there has been a lot of couture to come down the runway for me to choose from I went back to the Chanel Spring 2017 Couture collection for the look I think is perfect for Daisy to rock on the red carpet. This silver and white gown with a column silhouette, a featured pouf at the knees, beaded embellishments, plunging neckline, sheer hem, and a belted waist was one of my favorite looks that came down the Spring 2017 Couture runways and I think that Daisy would definitely make this a beautiful moment on this red carpet. A chic updo, smokey eye, red lip, silver and PVC Aquazzura ‘Temptation’ crystal slingback sandals, and a pair of diamond and emerald Chopard earrings all would make this look absolute perfection. Definitely a Best of 2018 contender. Lupita Nyong’o went about her last Star Wars tour wearing space age inspired looks for all of her red carpets. As I said in my wishes for her to wear for her international tour stops I really want to see Lupita really double down on that again for this tour. For the LA premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi I would probably let my jaw drop to the floor if Lupita showed up on the red carpet wearing this yellow Tom Ford Spring 2018 RTW column gown which features long mirror sequin sleeves, strong shoulders, and ruched construction. This gown is that perfect embodiment of that space age glamour done in such a major manner and I think that if anyone can make this gown really come to life then it would be Lupita. If she styled this look with sleek hair, a dramatic yellow lined eye, a pair of yellowish gold Tom Ford snakeskin wedge pumps, a red lip, and yellow diamond Harry Winston cluster earrings then Lupita would definitely have an absolutely major moment on this red carpet. I am expecting that this premiere will be the first really major moment from Billie Lourd. She has had some smaller moments on the red carpet, but I think that she will really bring it this year. She has really solidified her acting star with her role in American Horror Story: Cult and her role in Star Wars is rumored to be much bigger than the cameo that she had in The Force Awakens. For a the ‘Star Wars Day’ celebration back in May Billie wore a custom Tom Ford cocktail look and a custom Gucci gown at the LACMA Gala just a few weeks ago. I think that is exactly what we should be looking for when we see Billie step out for the premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I think that if she wore this beautiful and dramatic midnight blue Zuhair Murad Fall 2015 Couture gown which features a v-neckline, crystal star embellishment throughout, and a dramatic train on skirt that Billie would ensure that she really makes people take notice. I think every star should have a major Elie Saab moment on the red carpet, and I think that this would be a great time for Billie to have hers. As a rising star a couture moment could really cement Billie as one to watch. I would keep the styling of this look pretty classic with old Hollywood waves over one shoulder, a kohl rimmed eye, red lip, silver Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Coline’ crystal encrusted sandals, and a pair of Adler diamond and sapphire wreath earrings to really make this a majorly glamorous moment. At the beginning of the year I would have not really gotten excited about seeing Gwendoline Christie on the red carpet. She has always been one who I know has potential to do good things on the red carpet, but she consistently let me down. I am really praying that she delivers a really great look for the premiere of The Last Jedi. Earlier this year Gwendoline wore a Sies Marjan dress and it was one of the looks that made me get excited about her style again. I went back to the fledgling designer for the look for Gwendoline to wear for this red carpet. I think that Gwen would definitely take this deep purple Sies Marjan Spring 2018 RTW draped silk midi dress and make it a major moment. I think that This is the kind of dress that Gwendoline can take and really own. It isn’t exactly what one might expect to see me pick for this red carpet, but I think that she would really make it a major moment. Styling this look with a loose wavy bob, kohl rimmed eyes, a light pink lips, and a pair of black leather Jimmy Choo ‘Romy’ pumps embellished with gunmetal sequins would all make for another really great moment for Gwendoline. Laura Dern has been one of my favorites to see on the red carpets this year and I have really loved to see what she has brought. I am expecting that Laura will deliver a really beautiful moment on the red carpet at this premiere. I went for bold color with this cobalt blue Brandon Maxwell Spring 2018 RTW gown constructed in stretch crepe which features a plunging layered neckline, princess seams for a tailored fit, white belted waist, and a high front slit for Laura to rock on this red carpet. I think that this very chic, simple, and perfectly tailored silhouette would make for a truly major moment for Laura. Pair this gown with loose waves, a simple lined eye, bold red lip, a pair of white Christian Louboutin ‘Nosy’ t-strap pumps, and diamond and sapphire Van Cleef & Arpels ear clips to really make this a really modern glam moment.Jennifer Aniston was a last minute addition to this list. She is not in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but her hubby Justin Theroux is. I would imagine that Jen will make a trip to the red carpet as Justin’s plus one for this premiere. While I think that Jennifer has made some strides in stepping outside of her comfort zone this year I also think that she will stick to her small box for this premiere. I think that Jennifer would definitely wear this black long sleeve Valentino Spring 2018 mini dress which features textured details on one sleeve and I do think that this premiere would be a perfect moment for her to rock on this red carpet. The dress is very simple, but I think that would be exactly what Jennifer would wear since it really isn’t her night. I would add some glitz by pairing this dress with Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle Sequin’ pumps covered in allover multicolored sequins. Her signature hairstyle, kohl rimmed eyes, and a red lip would all round out a perfect plus one ensemble.
The LA premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi will take place on Sunday December 10, 2017.
