They star in one of the most hotly anticipated films of 2018.

And Emilia Clarke and Thandie Newton looked suitably out-of-this-world as they attended a screening of Solo: A Star Wars Story at the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday.

The esteemed actresses cut chic figures as they stepped out on the red carpet at the photocall for the film, joining sci-fi legend Chewbacca for some fun snaps.

Choose pretty printed trousers for summer like Thandie in Valentino

Thandie Newton arrived in serious style for a screening of Solo: A Star Wars Story at the Cannes Film Festival this week.

While most choose dresses to hit the red carpet, Thandie had gone against the grain and opted for a sleek one-shoulder, long-line, trailing top, paired with wide leg trousers.

The whole look comes from the autumn/winter 2018 Valentino runway and we're loving that we've seen nothing like it yet at Cannes with its almost retro style floral prints. Despite being from the fall line, it's actually got a rather summery feel to it too, perfect to replicate right now - especially in the UK that never gets too toasty!

So while you can't buy this exact look yet, you can choose a similar floral pair of trousers below by the likes of Johanna Ortiz, Boohoo and more.

It is the latest spin-off/standalone in the lucrative sci-fi franchise which was given a new lease of life in 2012 when Lucas Film was purchased by Disney for a little over $4billion.

Since then two parts of a sequel trilogy — The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi — have been released, as well as the stand-alone prequel Rogue One, with many more unnamed projects planned.
