    Carrie Fisher may be gone, but her daughter Billie Lourd is still finding ways to honour her memory. Over the weekend the actress, who plays Lieutenant Connix in the upcoming Star Wars installment The Last Jedi, attended the film’s premiere in Los Angeles, and her red carpet look paid tribute to her ‘Momby’ in the most poignant way.

    For the event, Lourd decided to wear her hair in a braided bun, which is style that her mum’s character Princess Leia wore on numerous occasions. In fact, the updo is almost identical to how her mum’s character wore her hair in the first-ever Star Wars film, A New Hope almost 40 years ago. Yep, let the water works flow.

    Not only did Lourd honour her mum with her beauty look, she also wore a bright blue ring that belonged to her mum. Fisher wore the same piece of jewellery to the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens back in 2015, so naturally we’re feeling all the feels.

    The Last Jedi is dedicated to Fisher and features her final performance. Grab the tissues because we have a feeling you’ll need it when the film hits cinemas this week.
