While the Star Wars saga is famous for its elaborate sets and for revolutionary visual effects, it also features some of the most unique and ornate costumes in modern film. In this exquisite volume, the intricate and beautiful fashions that have appeared in all six Star Wars films are on display-from military gear to royal gowns and the iconic garbs of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader. Every costume is brilliantly displayed in intimate detail, from preproduction sketches to the final creations. Actors, including Natalie Portman and Samuel L. Jackson, provide commentary on their experiences during principal photography, while writer-director George Lucas and producer Rick McCallum contribute their thoughts on this exploration of Star Wars costume design. Accompanied by an exhibition at the The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) Museum & Galleries at FIDM in Los Angeles, this unique visual treat is a must-have for any Star Wars fan. An additional limited-edition run of this book will be released with lavish gatefolds, fabric swatches, and a cast replica of a Wookiee belt-buckle, sure to be the ultimate Star Wars collectible.

Trisha Biggar is the costume designer of the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy. After training at the Wimbledon School of Art, she worked with several British theater companies, and then moved into designing costumes for films such as Silent Scream and Wild West. Her television drama credits include Moll Flanders and The Missing Postman. She designed the costumes for the BBC films Saigon Baby and Truth or Dare as well as the television series The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles and Love Hurts.
George Lucas is the creator of the phenomenally successful Star Wars saga and Indiana Jones series. He has been writing and directing for more than 25 years.
Rick McCallum produced the widely popular Star Wars Trilogy Special Edition (DVD), in addition to producing the newest Star Wars movie trilogy.
Adult/High School–Through lavish visuals and concise text, Biggar describes the painstaking process her team, under George Lucass direction, used to create the costumes worn in the Star Wars prequel trilogy. Six chapters feature outfits categorized by role: Jedi vs. Sith, Royalty, Military, Galactic Senate, Slaves, and Rogues & Bounty Hunters. An entire chapter is devoted to the gorgeous clothes for Queen Padme Amidala. Because the costumes were custom fitted, the actors model those created for their roles. The author begins each chapter with an account of the design challenges, fabric selection, and fabrication of the costumes and special props for each role. The oversized format and archival, quality photographs enable readers to study the workmanship, design, and textiles of each highlighted costume. Descriptive sidebars and captions often include quotes by the actor who wore it, Lucas, or other key players. These quotes enrich the book exponentially, as do the double-page collages of film stills and design sketches. The descriptions, albeit brief, of digital costumes and cloth simulation are fascinating. A complete visual index of attire worn in each episode is offered in lieu of a traditional index. Aficionados wont be the only audience drawn to this compelling tribute–readers interested in fashion, design, film, and photography are bound to find it rewarding.–Claudia C.
