Giles Deacon has designed a new gown that is inspired by “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” character Captain Phasma. Gwendoline Christie, who plays the villainous character in the movie, got to wear the gown for a photo shoot.

Vanity Fair has released a set of photos of Christie in the gown and there is also a video that shows the actress carrying a gun prop that her character uses in her forthcoming movie. Deacon collaborated with Bloomingdale’s and Force 4 Fashion for the gown and it will be auctioned off for charity after being displayed at Bloomingdale’s store in New York City.

“I loved that the design of Captain Phasma’s costume had been so inventively worked into the dress design,” the actress said about the gown. The actress also expressed her confidence in her character and said that Captain Phasma will become a “huge popular-culture icon.”

The movie is one of the most highly anticipated of the year and is expected to be a big hit at the box office. Steven Spielberg also feels that “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” will make a big impact in theatres across the globe. According to a report by Slashfilm, Spielberg said in a recent interview that the J.J. Abrams movie was going to be the “biggest movie ever.”

The cast members had to face the blistering heat in the desert of Abu Dhabi to film some of the scenes and Abrams wanted to get the best out of each actor from day one. In a recent interview with Glamour Magazine, cast member Daisy Ridley (Rey) revealed that the director had called her performance “wooden” on the first day of filming.

“I was petrified. I thought I was gonna have a panic attack,” Ridley said recalling her reaction to the director’s comments. “ I honestly wanted to die. I thought I was gonna cry, I couldn't breathe,” the actress added.

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is slated to be released on Dec. 17, 2015 in Australia. It has been a decade since the last movie from the franchise and the new movie will continue the saga from the original trilogy.
