The Costumes of Star Wars - Princess Leia

Updated on November 29, 2011

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.

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.

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.
