Star Wars - Princess Leia
Princess Leia Organa is the twin sister of Luke Skywalker and the daughter of Padme Amidala Skywalker and Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader. She was whisked away at birth, upon Padme's death, by Obi Wan Kenobi, to save her from her father who had turned to the dark side. She was raised by Bail Organa who was a member of the royal family of Alderaan. Following in her adopted father's footsteps, Leia became a senator and a leader in the alliance to restore the Republic.

Princess Leia's Gold Bikini
The Gold Bikini
Leia's gold bikini is another classic from the original trilogy. In Return of the Jedi , Leia is captured by Jabba the Hutt and made his slave. Chained to the giant slug, Leia waits patiently for her chance to escape. When Lando arrives to help Han and Luke, Leia strangles Jabba with the chain.
During the briefing before the final battle with the Empire, Leia wears the military inspired outfit of blue pants with a yellow stripe, a khaki shirt, and olive green vest. Once she is on Endor she covers up with a camouflaged poncho.
Leia in the Ewok Village
While celebrating the victory over the Empire, Leia wears this forest gown. It appears to be a suede dress with a white linen under dress. The stitching is visible and there are laces at the neck. The skirt comes to a point in the front and the back and there is a belt at the waistline. It is in this outfit that Leia comes to terms with the fact that Darth Vader is her father and Luke is her brother.
Jedi Knights are spiritual warriors and the peace keepers of the galaxy. Trained in the use of the Force, they act as ambassadors performing judicial and diplomatic missions of peace between the planets. They are the last defense against the evil forces from the dark side.
The universal theme behind the Star Wars movies is good vs evil. This classic theme has given us a delightful love/hate relationship with some memorable bad boys.
