Who Has The Best Outfit in Star Wars?

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. Luke Skywalker

luke-skywalker-main_5a38c454_461eebf5From the sandy deserts of Tatooine to the mountainous islands of the new planet Ach-To, Luke Skywalker has always been cool. Now after years of his absence on the big screen the infamous Luke has returned and his wardrobe has gotten surprisingly better since we last saw him. I remember when I first saw him at the end of The Force Awakens. I expected him to be wearing a black cloak and maybe a dark brown robe but when I saw him in a slightly dirty, old tan, hooded cloak with a robe underneath to match I was amazed. He really looked like a master now, not the young Jedi that he was in Return of the Jedi. So, because of that alone, I have put him as tenth on my list.

9. 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. There haven’t been any 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. And even Rey’s clothing is a sandy color. 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?

8. Rey

What makes Rey’s outfit stand out is the loose fabric draped over her like a curtain. It kind of gives the illusion that she’s wearing a robe or maybe a tunic yet really all she’s wearing is a tank top and a pair of capris. It really differentiates her and gives her that scavenger look that makes Rey so special. I also love love, love the makeshift sleeves on her arms. It keeps her from being too exposed and that’s important in this new age of representation for women and girls.

7. 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 suit. One of my favorite toys as a child was Jango Fett because he was so cool. He definitely was going to earn a spot on my list.

6. Director Orson Krennic

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Director Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn) Ph: Jonathan Olley �Lucasfilm LFL 2016.

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 really wished he had been a better character than he was.

5. 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, according to The Last Jedi, hasn’t diminished in the slightest.

4. 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. And his cape is so perfect and his armor is so shiny, he was undoubtedly going to be in the top five on my list.

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 is perfect. And what’s even better is the fact that his wardrobe is getting even better in The Last Jedi! I know he’s, or at least he used to be, a Darth Vader wannabe but his style is so impeccable I can’t not have him in the top three.

2. 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. When I had finished watching The Force Awakens I was bummed to think that she died after having such a minimal part. I’m glad to know she’ll get a little more justice in the next installment. And by the way, one of these Halloweens I am totally dressing up as Captain Phasma. She’s too cool not to.

1. Padme Amidala

open-uri20150608-27674-1fzb3ur_4d645f37

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.

 

The Last Jedi Has New Posters and They Are Awesome!

The D23 conference in Orlando showed out for the past couple of days with new looks at the Star Wars land in Disney World, a behind the scenes sneak peek at The Last Jedi which I will elaborate on in my next post, and a whole lot more. They also happened to reveal some brand new character posters for The Last Jedi and I want to talk a little bit about each of them because that’s how excited I am.

The Ten Most Awesome Women of Star Wars

It’s a great time to be a female fan of Star Wars. Not only has the franchise been rebooted in the best possible way but there are also so many new, strong female characters to follow and enjoy. Now that LucasFilm has released a new series called Forces of Destiny which focuses on the women of Star Wars I decided to write a post about my favorite ladies of the galaxy. Here are my top ten favorite women of Star Wars.

The Last Jedi Teaser Is Finally Here!!!

It has been almost a year and a half since The Force Awakens came out in the movies. Since its debut I have been so ready to find out what’s going on in this next installment. Last year we were introduced to the first anthology film in Star Wars which was Rogue One. Yes it was a fantastic movie and yes it is now my favorite Star Wars movie of all time but it still is nothing compared to my excitement for The Last Jedi. Well, the teaser, after this eternal wait is finally here. Enjoy!

Before This Christmas

So this trailer was full of gorgeous shots, exciting moments, and no knowledge of what the movie is exactly about which is always great. The first section of the movie before This Christmas showed up was enjoyable. It showed a lot of Rey, Luke was speaking for the first time which was incredible! All in all it was a pretty impeccable first section of the movie. It wasn’t really anything special, I will say. Yes it’s Star Wars but it was like every other Star Wars teaser I’ve seen before. Fantastically put together clips, epic music, and someone talking. Then the rest of the trailer started and I was immediately entranced. Let’s talk about the second half of this trailer.

 Kylo Ren and Captain Phasma

The Force Awakens introduced the world to their evil villain Kylo Ren. Kylo Ren at first wasn’t a true villain to me due to his immense confusion throughout the film. Then after he killed his own father, the iconic Han Solo (is it just me or does it hurt to say that Han Solo is dead?) I knew he was going to be one to worry about in the next film. Kylo Ren is scary because he will kill the characters you like the most (like Luke or Leia) without any remorse and that is frightening. Seeing him in this trailer, no matter how brief it was was amazing. First of all I’m glad that they chose a shot where he didn’t have his mask so we could see his scarred face. The shot they chose however did not allow a full view of his face so you could only see the top half of the scar which makes it exciting to see him again in other trailers. Secondly, we’re definitely going to get a better insight into Captain Phasma in this new Star Wars. She looked frighteningly beautiful in that firelight alongside her menacing stormtroopers. It definitely looks like she’ll have more to do in The Last Jedi which is appreciated. And that shot of what I’m guessing was Luke dropping to his knees as he looked upon a burning building was the same thing that was occurring in Rey’s vision in The Force Awakens where it showed Luke placing his metal hand upon R2-D2 with firelight in the left side of the screen. This was the best section of the trailer because the Dark Side is always very cool in these Star Wars films.

Everything Else in the Trailer

The rest of the trailer was just as fun to watch. The ships flying over that white flatland with red smoke streaming from the backside. Epic! And if you pause at that part you can see the silhouettes of walkers in the far distance. That’s exciting! There was Finn in some sort of tank thingy. I can’t wait to see what he’s up to. Poe’s black X-Wing got destroyed which is a shame. I loved his X-Wing. There was Rey running at night with her lightsaber. That shot of Leia was fascinating. I’m sure this movie is going to make her place in the Star Wars universe even more legendary. Wow, I can’t believe it. This was the actual teaser. The teaser has finally arrived and it was awesome!

The Conclusion of my Thoughts About This Trailer

What this teaser shows me is the fact that The Last Jedi is clearly going to be better than The Force Awakens and Rogue One which I am pleased about. I watched this trailer over a dozen times and it seems to get better!

The music for this trailer is also very telling because it’s underlying tones were sad. That isn’t good. And with Luke saying at the end of the trailer that the Jedi will have to end, what is that all about?! I have a feeling I’m going to come away from The Last Jedi crushed in some sort of way. Let’s hope Luke doesn’t die. Disney, please don’t kill Luke, or anybody else that’s cool.

If you’re just excited as me then I hope this trailer made you just as happy as it made me. Now, after this teaser December seems a long way from now which is slightly depressing. But at least we finally have seen the teaser. I hope the next trailer will have another shot of Kylo Ren without his mask, maybe a glimpse of Snoke, and a look at the new characters in this next film. Until that time I can’t wait to go see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 so I can see this teaser in all of its glory at the movies.

Thank you for reading this post and May the force be with you! December 15th you all, December 15th!
