Princess Leia's Most Iconic Costumes?

Known to millions of movie fans as "Princess Leia," the character Leia Organa Solo, played by Carrie Fisher, first appeared in the original Star Wars film, released in 1977. The film would later be re-titled Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, as more films were added to the franchise. Leia wore a simple white dress for much of the first movie, along with her iconic "cinnamon buns" hairstyle. The dress features a turtleneck collar, bell sleeves, an attached hood and loose, draping fabric gathered at the waist with a silver belt. George Lucas seems to have purposely associated Leia with silver. Leia wore a more fitted white dress at the end of the film, with a necklace fashioned with a string of flat, silver squares. Leia's slave costume in the second film of the series, The Empire Strikes Back Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, released in 1980, is accented in contrasting brass. The slave costume came to be known as the "gold bikini," a costume that Time Magazine included in its Top 10 Bikinis in Pop Culture list. Crafted with brass rather than gold, the bikini was extremely uncomfortable to wear, according to Carrie Fisher, who quipped that the bikini was "what supermodels will eventually wear in the seventh ring of hell." A panel of deep rust-colored fabric extends from the front of the bikini bottom to the floor, with another panel draping from the back. A brass, snake-shaped armband adorns one upper arm, with a brass bracelet on the other. Leia's hair is worn in a long, single braid, gathered in a brass ornament. Leia's "Ewok Dress" appeared in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, released in 1983. Presumably the character whipped up the costume during her stay with the tree-inhabiting creatures. All the Ewok costumes are fashioned to look as if they were assembled from strips of leather and patches of fur. Leia's dress, crafted in a tan, suede-like fabric, features a skirt made from strips of fabric in various lengths, a loosely fitted bodice drawn with a leather tie, and mid-arm length sleeves over a white, full-length sleeved top. Leia's hair falls to her waist.
