How to Be a High-Fashion Princess Leia
Welcome to "Who Won Fashion Today," where we award the boldest, best dressed person of the day. Winning fashion doesn't necessarily mean you're wearing the most expensive, trendiest, or prettiest dress. Rather, we reward risk-takers—those that stay true to their personal style and make us go, "Now THAT is a LEWK.”
Admission: I have never seen Star Wars. But I have seen about 342,000,000 photos of Princess Leia’s fantastic white robe costume. I’ve seen versions of it at Halloween costume stores, on runways, and at Liz Lemon’s wedding on 30 Rock. But the best Princess Leia–inspired look we’ve seen? Billie Lourd, daughter of Princess Leia herself, in Tom Ford.
Lourd made her first public appearance since her mother Carrie Fisher's death at the Star Wars 40th anniversary celebration in Orlando, Florida, on Thursday. The 24-year old actress wore a white minidress with a mock turtleneck and wide, kimono-like sleeves. Coincidence? We think not.

Sure, the famous two buns aren’t there, but we’d like to think Lourd’s Princess Leia inspired look is high fashion, modern, and the perfect nod to the late Fisher, who was so dearly missed during the evening’s festivities.
