There are a lot of different characters in Star Wars, I mean a whole lot of them. There are new characters, old characters, famous characters and background characters, and every single one of them has a unique style about them that makes them memorable, whether it’s good or bad. So, on that note, in this post, I’m going to see who reigns supreme in the realm of fashion in the galaxy. Enjoy.
10. Jyn Erso
I like Jyn’s outfit a lot. First of all, the outfit she wears throughout the entire film looks very logical for her field of work. I love that there aren’t any low necklines or ultra tight leggings to try to sexualize her. And I love the dark brown. And there aren’t a lot of main female characters in Star Wars, so far, who have worn dark colors. Padme was always in something vibrant or colorful except for a few times. Princess Leia (not General Leia) was always in white or if not that color at least green. Jyn was the first female protagonist to wear some dark clothing and I love it. And by the way, are her pants for sale anywhere because they look so comfortable?
9. Jango Fett
Despite the many flaws of The Attack of the Clones Jango Fett did manage to stand out, and one of those reasons was because of his beautiful silver and blue Mandalorian suit. One of my favorite toys as a child was Jango Fett because he had such an incredible design. He definitely was going to earn a spot on my list.
8. Director Orson Krennic
Director Krennic is a villain. That’s why when I first saw him in that first teaser over a year ago I was so shocked. He was an Imperial behemoth yet he was wearing white! No one in the Galactic Empire dons any colors other than the usual gray or black. It made him stand out and actually made him a little more frightening. And his cape was simply stunning. I wish he had been a more intimidating villain than he ended up becoming but his outfit is definitely amazing.
Rey already had one of the coolest outfits I had ever seen in The Force Awakens with her drapy scavenger look but her look got light-years better in The Last Jedi with her new Jedi style. It’s a perfect outfit because she still has her scavenger arm wraps and leather bracer, she’s got the dark brown quilted tunic, her patented hanging fabric that she’s had since the last movie, and those boots! Those boots tie the entire outfit all together and really makes her look stand out. Rey was already an absurdly cool character and they just made her that much better. Go Rey!
6. General/Princess Leia
Princess Leia’s most famous white dress has always been stunning to me, even since I was a little girl. Its beauty provides all of the elegance for this outfit but the designers provided a toughness to her from the flat-footed boots she wore. Absolutely perfect. This outfit will go down as one of the most iconic outfits in cinema history. And her style hasn’t diminished in the slightest.
Look at that dramatic collar, the golden bracelet and gorgeous ring, and the dark robe beneath. That’s some serious fashion right there. General Leia, your effortless style will always shine.
5. Darth Vader
Darth Vader is scary, plain and simple. He could’ve looked corny back in 1977 when he made his debut in the public’s eye but I mean look at him! He embodies the essence of a villain. And yeah he’s got those red and green buttons on his chest. It’s because he’s basically a robot! What an ingenious creation. His cape is perfect, his armor is abnormally shiny, and he was undoubtedly going to be in the top five on my list.
4. Captain Phasma
Need I say more. This picture tells it all. Just like Kylo Ren she’s rocking that cape over one shoulder look. And then her chrome armor is so stunning and gloriously shiny that all I can do is shake my head in appreciative awe. In The Force Awakens she was a little dingy but, just like Darth Vader, she returned in the sequel much shinier and I loved it. She might have been killed off in The Last Jedi but her style will live eternally.
3. Kylo Ren
Kylo Ren is cool, cool, cool, and did I say he was cool? His short cape that goes over one shoulder, the gloves, the silver lined mask, the belt, I mean his entire outfit was perfect in The Force Awakens. And then in The Last Jedi his outfit continued on the awesome trend.
He moved from a turtlenecked robe and adopted a scooped neckline with a short tunic, a thicker belt, and a longer, much cooler looking cape. One thing Kylo Ren definitely possesses is style and I’m excited to see if he’ll return in Episode IX with yet another new look.
2. Praetorian Guards
I immediately fell in love with these red clad soldiers because of their absolutely impeccable design. The plastoid armor, the lethal looking weapons, the flowing robes. EPIC! If The Last Jedi doesn’t get nominated in the Oscars for costume and makeup I am going to be livid because these characters are too perfectly created not to be recognized as some of the best designed characters of the year.
1. Padme Amidala
And the owner of the best outfit…or outfits in her case, is Padme Amidala. I’m not a fan of her character, at least in the second and third episodes of Star Wars. She was turned into a sappy love interest who became infatuated with a young man she knew when he was nine-years old, (super yuck,) and lost all of her cool points. One thing, however, that never did diminish about her was her wardrobe, especially in the second one.
From her flirty yet still elegant attire in Naboo, hairstyles and all,
to even her deathbed at the end of Revenge of the Sith.
Every one of her garments is something I would actually wear if I could, and that’s why she is number one on this list. I hope there will eventually be another main female character in Star Wars with a wardrobe as extensive and gorgeous as hers.
So, that’s my post. It’s been really fun to write and I thank you for reading it. I hope you have a beautiful day.
