The breathtaking dress is from the label’s autumn/winter 2019 couture collection and features an off-the-shoulder neckline, sheer panels and a dramatic ombre effect.Gwendoline styled her structured dress with a pair of red, pointed shoes and wore her blonde hair slicked back. A pop of red lipstick completed the look. It’s not the first time the Game of Thrones star has stolen the show at a red carpet event.

Maybe Captain Phasma survived the destruction of the Starkiller Base after all? Gwendoline Christie told People Magazine at this weekend’s SAG Awards that the chrome-domed Stormtrooper she played in Star Wars: The Force Awakens officially will be returning for the franchise’s next film. That answers a major question left by director J.J. Abrams’ smash hit, which seemed to have left Phasma in the First Order’s massive base when the Resistance’s X-Wing pilots destroyed it.
