Carrie Fisher was traveling from London to Los Angeles when she suffered the attack.

Rest in Peace Carrie Fisher

Just some time ago, late Carrie Fisher graced the red carpet for the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in a thigh-high slit blue velvet gown and a metallic jacket.

Fisher, at the European film premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens after party, made an entry in a deep red asymmetrical gown. She looked quite elegant in a pair of turquoise blue danglers and simple black heels.

The actress also had a notable career as a humorist. She attended the book signing event of her latest book The Princess Diarist in LA on November 28, 2016. Fisher again arrived in style, wearing a long sleeved, black knee-length dress that had a pink panel around the neck and three panels in different shades of pink on the cuff. The author elegantly tied up the look with a pair of shiny black moccasins.
