See Who Channelled Princess Leia at the Star Wars Premiere
It's tough to name a hairstyle more iconic than General (née Princess) Leia's buns—and in spite of being part of Star Wars history, the 'do got a red carpet refresh last night for the Los Angeles premiere of The Force Awakens. Lupita Nyong'o, Sofia Vergara, and more arrived sporting gorgeous iterations on the look. All in all, brilliant.
Don't just take our word for it—keep scrolling to see the best beauty looks of last night's Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiere, Leia-inspired and otherwise.
The star of the new film opted for understated elegance, with a pinned-up bob and a classic smoky makeup look in shades of purplish taupe to set off her hazel eyes. Chanel makeup artist Kara Yoshimoto used the brand's Quadra Eyeshadow (£40) in Tissé Gabrielle, defining the lash lines with the Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner (£19) in Espresso.
As for Ridley's hair, stylist Robert Vetica relied on Leonor Greyl's Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice (£25) for that touchable volume.
The actress blew us away with her festive look, complete with bright lipstick, silvery eye shadow… and yes, Leia buns. Makeup artist Nick Barose actually blended two products to acheive that festive lip color: Lancôme's L'Absolu Rouge Lip Color (£24) in Absolute Rouge, and a sheer chocolate lip pencil.
Where's the "top" emoji? King's entire look was completely on point—including the lopsided bun. (One on each side might have been too literal.)
The singer knows that in red carpet land, Veronica Lake waves and a vampy red lip never really steer you wrong.
Is it too early to predict this sleek bob as one of the It hairstyles of 2016? And the brows, and glossy lip—so chic, all around.
