Leia Organa has undoubtedly become one of the most iconic princesses in modern pop culture. Although not originally seen as a feminist figure, the rebellious, determined and pragmatic Princess Leia has become a familiar symbol of struggle and freedom. The little girls dress up as her not as a damsel in distress but generally leading the Resistance. In recent years, countless people have held signs bearing Leia’s face as they walked together, sharing a voice across the country. It seems his legacy continues to lead a resistance years after his own struggle.
Aside from her courage and grace, what really sets Leia apart from other nobles? Is it his fiery returns? His ability to command an entire army no doubt? We won’t even get into the years of family drama. While all of this certainly adds to her character, what really gives Leia her edge are her sensible shoes. Apparently since childhood, she has embraced the reliability of a good sturdy shoe, but she never sacrificed fashion. She is royalty, after all. Sure, there was that whole gold bikini outfit from Return of the Jedi, but it was totally Jabba’s idea, so we can’t blame him. A prime example of Leia’s functional fashion is her classic, wintry ensemble of The Empire Strikes Backand if you want to add some practical princess pep to your own wardrobe, head over to our friends at Fun.com!
