What’s Your Favorite Princess Leia Look?

Star Wars. It’s a story that resides in a galaxy far, far away, where powerful men and women dressed in iconic robes and wielding different colored laser swords have mysterious powers and follow their tales of destiny while fighting an endless battle between good and evil. There’s a lot to this incredible story that has spanned decades and wowed generations of fans and one of the elements to this franchise that is so much fun to explore is the characters’ individual styles.

Each and every character has a specific style that is created with such fine detail and so for the next couple of weeks, my Who’s Your Favorite? series will be brought to you every day and targeting a specific character and their overall style through their time in the franchise. And who better to start this series than with one of the most iconically dressed fictional characters, Princess Leia?

‘Phantom Thread’ Is a Beautiful Piece of Art

(This is a repost of one of my favorite movies.)

In preparation for the Oscars this year my family and I have begun to look back at some of the Oscar-nominated films last year that we missed. One of those particular movies happened to be Phantom Thread.

This wasn’t a film I was particularly interested in seeing but after my mother watched it and came away from the film with nothing but praise I decided to check it out. I’m glad I did. This movie is going to stick with me for a long time because of its unique brilliance. So, on that note, let me tell you a little bit about this film.

First off, I just want to say that Daniel Day-Lewis did an absolutely phenomenal job in this movie. This was his swan song and boy did he go out with a bang. I’m sure Gary Oldman’s stunning portrayal of Winston Churchill was undoubtedly worthy of an Oscar but in my opinion, I would’ve given the trophy to Mr. Day-Lewis. He played this part SO well but I figure, because he’s already won three Oscars, they gave Gary the trophy instead. Boo.

Anyway, this movie is amazing. It follows the story of a designer in England (Daniel Day-Lewis) whose dresses are unparalleled in their breathtaking quality. And these dresses are ravishing.

Time and time again I found myself staring at the screen in wide-eyed awe because of how beautiful the dresses were. This film’s only Oscar winner went to Best Costume Design and it rightfully deserved it. Okay, I’m getting off course again. Let me get back to telling you about the story.

What’s Your Favorite Padme Look: Part 3?

For this final segment of What’s Your Favorite Look? I’m finishing it off with Padme’s designs in Revenge of the Sith. Now, because I have extended the What’s Your Favorite? topic for nearly two weeks there will not be a Who’s Your Favorite? topic this Sunday but all will return to normal next Sunday.

So, on that note, here are her dazzling looks from Revenge of the Sith. Enjoy!

The Mother-To-Be Outfit

When Padme was first introduced in Revenge of the Sith she wears this fascinating velvet cloak to hide her form to prevent anyone from noticing her pregnancy. She also wears her hair in cinnamon buns as yet another homage to Leia, the daughter she would bear in a few months. Continue reading What’s Your Favorite Padme Look: Part 3?

What’s Your Favorite Padme Look: Part 2?

Yesterday I shared a list of all of Padme’s looks from The Phantom Menace. Today, we look at her prettiest wardrobe yet from Attack of the Clones. Enjoy!

Undercover Senator

Padme knew she was hated by the Trade Federation and that they would one day try to enact their revenge. It’s why, even as a senator, she had to travel with such caution. So, at the beginning of Attack of the Clones, we see Padme dressed as a pilot to remain undercover and yet even in a piloting outfit she manages to look stylish.

I mean, look at that belt! Stylish. Continue reading What’s Your Favorite Padme Look: Part 2?

What’s Your Favorite Padme Look: Part 1?

There are a lot of beautiful and imaginatively inventive outfits that are made for characters in cinema but it’s kind of obvious that Padme has the greatest wardrobe of all of the characters. From The Phantom Menace to Revenge of the Sith, Padme’s style is outstanding with a capital O and so very extensive that her segment will take three days to study. So on that note let’s look at her outfits in The Phantom Menace.

Classic Red Dress

So perfect, so illustrious, so powerful, Queen Amidala demands your attention in this fascinating getup. This was the look she wore for the first time we saw her in The Phantom Menace and it was very apparent that this woman, this young queen, was a boss.
