    Queen Padmé Amidala from Star Wars.
    Inspired by Traditional Mongolian royal fashion(2) and the costume of Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrovna of Russia(1).
    And sounds like Padma, Kamala etc.


  3. The character and costume of Padmé Amidala Skywalker were influenced by Ksenia Alexandrovna and the other Mongolian lady shown here.

    Padme Amidala’s senate costume was probably inspired by this photo of a Mongolian lady, taken from a 1921 National Geographic.

    Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrovna of Russia (1875-1960), sister of Tsar Nicholas II also inspired her travel costume or some such


  8. Xenia Alexandrovna inspired the travel gown, and the royal attire of Mongolian queens inspired the royal dress of Padme Amidala in the Star Wars series.

    In The Phantom Menace, the dress which Padmé wears when addressing the Senate is based on Mongolian imperial fashion worn by Grand Empress Börte (image 2), wife of Genghis Khan. Padmé’s travel gown in Attack of the Clones is based on 17th century Russian fashion photographed on Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrovna (image 1) in 1903.

    Straight snip from Wikipedia :)

    The connect is that Amidala’s fashion sense was inspired by the ladies in the two pictures.

    I must be missing something.
    The obvious end is Padmé Amidala

    Wikiquote:
    *Many costumes were inspired by the historical royal fashions of different cultures. For example, in The Phantom Menace, the dress which Padmé wears when addressing the Senate is based on Mongolian imperial fashion worn by Grand Empress Börte, wife of Genghis Khan, and other monarchs into the early 20th century. Padmé’s travel gown in Attack of the Clones is based on 17th century Russian fashion photographed on Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrovna in 1903.*

    But there must be more to the question.


  20. Vishal

    Queen Amidala of the Naboo
    1) her travel gown in Attack of the Clones is inspired by this photo of Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrovna.
    2) the costume she wears when addressing the senate in The Phantom Menace is based on traditional imperial Mongol fashion.


  21. foobar
