The Star Wars: The Last Jedi star covered her slender frame with billowing pieces of purple fabric that cascaded down to the matching carpet, a striking nod to her powerful warrior character Nakia, according to her stylist Micaela Erlanger.

Her supremely regal capped sleeves featured intricate golden detailing complete with sapphire and amethyst jewels leading down to an attached belt.

Lupita wore her long raven-colored hair up in a chic top bun with just a touch of crimson hues swiped across her lips.

‘We found out there was a purple carpet after we had chosen the dress, but it was kind of a perfect reason to go with the gown; I think it’s a new addition to the Lupita rainbow!’ Micaela told The Hollywood Reporter during a phone interview.

‘There’s definitely a nod to her warrior character Nakia here, without being costumey,’ she said. ‘It’s a really glamorous take on our vision and it’s very fierce, certainly.’

Co-star Angela Bassett looked fantastic as she rocked a vibrant yellow fringed Naeem Khan jumpsuit on the purple carpet.
