'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story'

"Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" features a galaxy full of new characters, each with their own fierce look. Check out some of the costumes designed by David Crossman and former comics artist Glyn Dillon.

The costumes were shown off last week at an event outside London at Pinewood Studios, where parts of "The Force Awakens" and "Rogue One" were shot. The event marked the launch of Gillette's new Star Wars-branded Mach 3 razors. Yes, razors.
