Senator Amidala Packing Dress

Star Wars Ep. II: Senator Amidala Packing Dress


This costume was first shown in the Mystery Trailer, and we got another look in the Forbidden Love Trailer, where they showed Natalie Portman in a fitting. Padme wears it when she is packing to leave Coruscant. The Visual Dictionary, which often gives an interesting/amusing SW worldview on the costumes says that the subdued colours reflect grave mood and that a corset of light armour doubles as protection. The fabric (of skirt) hides blast-damping underskirt. Someone’s got a good imagination! During production, this costume was known as P-16.
