Daisy Ridley is certainly a name to add to two watch lists: one for style and the other for go-getters in Hollywood. From the brilliant 2014 Mr Selfridges TV series where she played Roxy to the big screen where she has a leading role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, this actress is certainly making her mark—and in British brands too, dontcha know?!
While we don't doubt her handiwork with a lightsaber, it's her statement-making wardrobe that really gets our heads turning. Daisy's go-to labels include: Christian Louboutin (she loves a pointy pump), intricately printed dresses from the likes of Burberry Prorsum and Etro, and, to add another Brit designer to her list of loves, Roksanda joins her fold of favourites.
From Daisy's series of figure-hugging midi dresses to her impressive collection of Jimmy Choos, we decode what makes the actress such a brilliant red carpet heroine and a sure thing on the best dressed list.

On Daisy Ridley: Chloé dress; Christian Louboutin shoes.
Style Notes: She may be new to the red carpet game but Daisy is certainly learning fast that next season's statement dresses are best!
On Daisy Ridley: Chanel dress.
Style Notes: The star echoes the 20's look that her Chanel dress perfectly captures, with a slicked back hairstyle and minimalistic accessories. Pitch perfect.
On Daisy Ridley: Roland Mouret dress.
Style Notes: With a directional peek-a-boo cut, Daisy balances out this luxe gown with a spiky top-knot. Copy that.
On Daisy Ridley: Roksanda dress.
Style Notes: Daisy strikes the perfect balance in sticking to the half/half rule (if your legs are out, then cover up elsewhere, and vice versa), and looks ultra-elegant with colour-matched Jimmy Choo heels. This is the on-duty, cocktail hour look to copy for work parties.
On Daisy Ridley: Michael Kors dress and bag.
Style Notes: The star could deliver a master class in looking sexy in a midi dress. Your fashion take-home? Outfit minimalism oozes confidence. Leave the necklace, earrings, and bracelets at home. Let your metallic heels and clutch do the talking.
On Daisy Ridley: Etro dress.
Style Notes: Her favourite formula is in practice once again: a mini dress and high heels (with a point, to lengthen legs). Simple and oh-so elegant.
On Daisy Ridley: Moncler top and skirt.
Style Notes: Proving that monochrome is always a good idea, Daisy is so versatile that it can take her to premieres, power lunches and launches. Clever.
On Daisy Ridley: Burberry dress (shop a similar style).
Style Notes: The perfect way to complete a busy, printed dress? Lift out one of the hues and take it to your feet. It'll create a polished look that's not try-hard.
On Daisy Ridley: Rejina Pyo dress; Christian Louboutin Iriza 100 Patent Pumps (£424).
Style Notes: We've clocked a pattern developing here. The star doesn't like to clutter her outfits with jewellery, and often leaves her handbag at home. Instead, she keeps it simple but not basic. Christian Louboutin's affirm the dash of red on her Rejina Pyo dress.
