May The Style Be With You
From the same team behind the 'Minionistas', we came up with a new breed of intergalactic style icons. To celebrate the highly anticipated release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the team at Stylight decided to do what they do best and transform our style inspirations like Karl Lagerfeld, Anna Wintour and Kanye West into classic Star Wars characters including Yoda, R2-D2 and Chewbacca.
Everything from ice cream and instant coffee to nail varnish and even the Google homepage has been given a cosmic touch, so it only felt natural to combine fashion’s biggest icons with the galaxy’s most famous faces. Afterall, as Yoda said... “Do. Or do not. There is no try.”
Star Wars has been a reoccurring theme on the runway for many years now. Who could forget Chanel’s AW 2010 iceage collection with Chewbacca-inspired fur onesies? Or Balmain’s C-3PO influenced all-gold AW 2013 runway looks, and Rodarte’s AW 2015 collection which actually featured Star Wars characters printed onto flowing maxi dresses.
Diving deeper into the Star Wars characters, we found a few out-of-this-world fashion comparisons to be made...
The Stormtrooper’s distinctive monochrome uniform made them a perfect match with inimitable designer Karl Lagerfeld who’s always sporting his trademark black and white suit.
And we couldn’t forget his furry sidekick Choupette who looks like she should have always been a mini stormtrooper!
Brave droid R2-D2 plays a longstanding role in Star Wars and is one of the only characters to appear in all 7 films and will also be present in The Force Awakens.
Given his well-established role in the fashion world and R2-D2 inspired trademark blue and white features we mixed French fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier with the mini droid.
According to Wikipedia Jar Jar Binks’ primary role in Star Wars is to ‘provide comic relief’ for the audience and we have to say this does ring true of Miley Cyrus too! Her kooky outfits and outrageous dance moves always get the audience talking!
