May The Style Be With You
Fashion Icons Get a Star Wars Makeover
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.
The build up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been immense:
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...
Karltrooper & Snowpette
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!
Who better to mix with sith lord Darth Vader than the woman who made wearing head to toe black fashionable… Victoria Beckham.
Get the Darth Victoria style and shop our suggestions:
- A feminine Moncler Coat
- With Givenchy Boots
- Or with Diesel Boots
Jedi Master Yoda is famed for his small green frame, sage thinking and wise quotes so naturally we transformed him into Editor In Chief of Vogue and fount of all fashion knowledge Anna Wintour!
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.
Warrior Darth Maul can be summed up in one word… formidable and, in our galaxy, nobody is more formidable than rapper/ fashion designer Kanye West!
Get the Kanye Maul style and shop our suggestions:
Cara Delevingne x Chewbacca seemed like a no brainer to us… the irreverent model turned actress loves nothing more than pulling crazy faces and messy hair so naturally we combined her with Wookie warrior and all round hair inpso Chewbacca!
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!
Get Miley Binks style and shop our suggestions:
"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" will be released on December 18th
Trailers and teasers show familiar faces such as Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford reprise their roles with a whole host of new actors, including Lupita Nyong'o and Girls’ Adam Driver. We can’t wait to see it in theaters!
