Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the talk of the town, so it’s no surprise that leading lady Daisy Ridley has been thrust into the spotlight. With seemingly no learning curve in sight, the actress has nailed her look on every red carpet she walks, donning confections from top labels Chanel, Dior and the like.

Fierce Florals

Though a daunting trend for many, bold allover patterns seem no challenge for Daisy. Whether via a Technicolor print or 3D embellishments, she sports statement florals with aplomb.
