Daisy Ridley and John Boyega matched the blue carpet as they stepped out in London for the premiere of Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker.

Actress Ridley, who plays Rey in the franchise, looked stunning in her dramatic corset dress, which left her shoulders bare and finished below the knee.

A billowing blue skirt wrapped around her waist completed the dramatic look.

Ridley posed for pictures at the screening alongside her co-star Boyega.

The actor, who plays Finn, was equally eye-catching in a blue and gold ensemble.

Naomi Ackie, who is also in the movie, brought the sparkle in a black dress with a twinkling, long skirt.

US actress Keri Russell, who stars as Zorri Bliss, turned heads in a pale green silk dress.

The voluminous gown featured an elaborate neck and left a section of her torso bare.

Violinist Linzi Stoppard was glamorous in gold, while singer Meghan Trainor appeared to be channelling Princess Leia in a long white dress with her hair piled on top of her head.
