Androids and intergalactic soldiers blended in well with the otherworldly looks donned by the Star Wars: The Force Awakens castmembers at the red carpet screening of the film.

Gwendoline Christie, Daisy Ridley and Lupita Nyong'o upstaged real live Stormtroopers at the Los Angeles premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Monday (14Dec15).

Gwendoline portrays villain Captain Phasma in the sci-fi picture, but she looked anything but sinister at the movie's debut in a fluffy, off-white Oscar de la Renta dress. Her floor-length décolleté gown featured several unique touches, including a black ribbon that accentuated her gorgeous neckline and disparate asymmetrically cut material covering her legs - which had the effect of making the bottom of the dress flair out.

Actress Lupita, who lends her voice to extraterrestrial CGI character Maz Kanata, donned a spectacular silver sequined gown which sparkled as she posed on the red carpet. As photographers snapped pictures of the stunning star, her gown twinkled with the flash of the cameras.

The 32 year old wanted to feel out of this world while celebrating the debut of the film, telling reporters of her starry-eyed mindset while choosing the dress, "I thought I’d bring the galaxy with me".

Lupita completed her spaced out look with Chopard jewellery, giving the brand a nod via her Instagram account before the event took place.

"#TheThunderSelection Getting ready for @starwars #theforceawakens premiere with a little help from my frietnds (sic). #Thunder @chopard (photo: @micaelaerlanger) #sneakpeek," she wrote in an image caption attached to a picture featuring a selection of diamond earrings and rings - topping off the scene with a Storm Trooper keychain.

Leading lady Daisy, Rey in the flick, did not fail to disappoint in a feminine, white Chloé gown that featured several layers of polka dots and sheer fabric all contributing to the illusion of her floating in the clouds.

The stunning actresses had their red carpet style competition cut out for them on the night, as several bionic beings also made an appearance, including legendary androids R2-D2 and C-3PO.

But nearly everyone was upstaged by laser-toting Stormtroopers - Servants of the Empire.
