Daisy Ridley is the actress on everyone’s lips, as she takes a starring role in 2015’s biggest film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. If you’re still not sure who she is (where have you been?!) find out everything you need to know about Daisy Ridley here.
Aside from her acting chops (you’ve got to be good to land a leading role, right?!), people are talking about Daisy’s uncanny resemblance to another Hollywood star.
From that smile to those chestnut tresses, Daisy is drawing a lot of comparisons to Keira Knightley – and now they say it, we do see it. Did you know Keira had a role in Star Wars I: The Phantom Menace, too?!
Star Wars co-star Carrie Fisher called out the lookalikes, telling Daisy “You just ruined Keira Knightley’s career” – but it sounds like Daisy’s over it already. “Keira Knightley is wonderful and has her own thing. But I just want to be me”.
Daisy, we totally get you, but we can’t help but notice some style sharing over the past few years…
The Statement Green Gown
Keira Knightley’s Atonement costume might be the most iconic green gown in history, but Daisy was a vision in grass-green by Michael Kors at a dinner in London.
The Cut Out Black Dress
Roland Mouret did good with this embellished black dressed, worn by Daisy at Star Wars European premiere. That crossover neckline looks pretty similar to Keira’s Nina Ricci gown in 2014.
The Colour Clash
Both actresses ditched the dark shades for these gorgeous pink and blue numbers.
The Frothy Dress
Maybe our favourite Daisy Ridley look to date, we’re seeing similarities between Daisy’s Chloe piece and Keira’s Giambattista Valli gown.
The Grey Coat
Cold out? Both stars wrapped up in grey coats while out and about. Daisy went for an oversized boyfriend fit, while Kiera tied her Burberry trench tight.
The Casual Look
Cosy, comfortable and casual is the off-duty style of choice for both Daisy and Keira. Coats, shoulder bags and trousers are a lot more comfortable that red carpet gowns, you know.
Before Star Wars, Daisy had a role in Mr Selfridge, in full costume of course. Those headpieces are reminding us of Keira Knightley in Anna Karenina…
