Billie Lourd Pays Tribute to Carrie Fisher as 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Premieres

The 25-year-old actress paid tribute to her late mother via Instagram with a sweet picture of the two on the red carpet.

Carrie Fisher may be gone, but never forgotten.

Hours after fans flocked to theaters on Thursday night to catch the highly anticipated premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the late actress' daughter, Billie Lourd, took to Instagram to share a sweet tribute.

Lourd posted a throwback photo from December 2015 of her and her mother on the red carpet at the Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiere in Hollywood, California. The two appeared to be happier than ever at the time, smiling and hugging as photographers captured their pic.

"I miss you," Lourd captioned it.

If you plan to see The Last Jedi, be sure to stay for the credits, as director Rian Johnson included a special tribute to Fisher, who died last December at 60 years old.

"In Loving Memory of Our Princess, Carrie Fisher," a dedication on the screen reads shortly into the credits.

The film's red carpet premiere earlier this month was a bittersweet one for Lourd, as it marked her first Star Wars red carpet without her mom by her side. The American Horror Story: Cult star honored her mother by sporting a high, braided hairstyle reminiscent to the one Fisher wore as Princess Leia in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.

She completed the head-turning look with a stunning, sparkling silver Tom Ford gown and minimal accessories.

Watch the video below to hear more on Lourd and Fisher's heartwarming bond.
