As Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theatres, we reflect on the influence our favourite galactic heroine, Princess Leia Organa, has had on girls of all ages from 1977 to 2017 – that's 40 years people! Modern in ways we didn't necessary recognize as tweens and teens back in the day, she has stood the test of time for being both badass and kickass, not too mention her razor-edged wit and yes, her space-style. Finally, a princess to which every feminist would aspire.

She Dressed the Part

It was a man's world – even in a galaxy far, far away. (To our point, can you name any of the other females, human and not, in the original trilogy?) But there would be no pantsuits for Leia – not that there's anything wrong with that. It would be floor-grazing dresses and elaborate outfits for Ms. Organa. And the hair. It couldn't have been more done.
