Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
Like many Star Wars fans, I love the original films, and I hate the prequels. While I love the "you can rescue me but let me take out a few assholes on the way" Princess Leia, horrendously poor storytelling makes it difficult to relate to her stoic mother Padme and why she fell for such a whiny and unsympathetic person as Anakin Skywalker. Unfortunately the film put more effort into Padme's wardrobe than her character, and in most cases, I dislike her outfits as they are almost farcical in their over-elaborateness and impracticability. However, the Lake Dress worn in Episode II is the opposite: simple, elegant in its subtle sexiness, and yet confusing enough in design to seem otherworldly. I've always been fascinated by this dress and finally had the opportunity to try it out.
