CLASSIC IMAGE: THE SNOW PRINCESS!


Going from the hot climes of the jungle world of Yavin IV to the colder, more practical realities of life on the far-off world of the ice planet Hoth, Princess Leia Organa is ready to get stuck in with her Rebel comrades in wearing her new fatigues, designed by legendary returning costume designer from the original Star Wars into The Empire Strikes Back, John Mollo.

John Mollo makes an adjustment to Julian Glover's costume, during filming of Empire.

A vital contributor to the success of the Classic Trilogy, and winning a well deserved Academy Award for his work on Star Wars in 1978, the sad news is in of Mollo's recent passing, at the age of 86. His contributions and influence live on in the franchise, especially as seen in the most recent Rogue One.
