Two of my favourite annual events are upon us this week: Star Wars Day and the Met Gala. Why not combine them??
It all started with Gigi Hadid:
Who is straight up wearing Padmé’s Nubian Night gown from Episode II, if in sheer grey. And Zayn has robot arms! It’s perfect. But having found one Padmé, well, I mean — she has so many outfits, and the Met Gala’s “Manus x Machina” theme this year just plays right into the galaxy far, far away. . .
Lorde as Queen Amidala on Naboo (Episode I)
Kate Bosworth as Padmé on Naboo (Episode II)

But Padmé is not the only one represented!
