Leia Organa Solo (born Leia Amidala Skywalker) was, at various stages of her life, a politician, revolutionary, and Jedi Knight of the New Jedi Order. The daughter of Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and Senator Padmé Amidala of Naboo, Leia was the younger twin sister of Luke Skywalker, and, shortly after her birth, she became the adopted daughter of Bail Organa and Queen Breha of Alderaan, making her a Princess of Alderaan. An accomplished Senator, Leia Organa was most famous for her strong leadership during the Galactic Civil War and other subsequent galactic conflicts, making her one of the galaxy’s greatest heroes.

The outer dress has a high, rounded neckline with triangular cut-outs in the front center like the points of a star: one long narrow “V”, (approximately half way in length of the bodice, positioned below throat), with a smaller, wider, one on either side of the middle “V.” The inner dress should not be visible at the neckline.

These braids meet and become one braid over the top center of the hairdo between the two buns and are twisted into a small braided rose shape in front of the buns. No fringe or bangs. Naturally-occurring hair colors only (brown hair color recommended). If a wig or hair extensions are used, they should be of high quality and appear like hair.
