The legendary floating white dress that Carrie Fisher wore in the final scene of 1977’s “Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope” is up for auction, with a starting price of $500,000.

It’s the only known Princess Leia costume from the original film that has survived, auction house Propstore said in its listing.

Despite a starting price of $500,000, the dress is expected to cost between $1 million and $2 million.

Fisher wore a flowing white dress and silver leather belt in the film’s final scene in the throne room as she presented the medals of honor to Luke Skywalker and Han Solo.

According to Prophouse, George Lucas wrote in the final scene of the film’s original script that “Luke, Threepio, Han and Chewbacca entered the massive ruins of the main temple. Hundreds of soldiers were lined up in neat rows. Banners flutter and in the foreground in the distance is a white image, beautiful young Senator Leia. Leia wears a long white dress and is amazingly beautiful.”

Costume designer John Mollo created the dress for Fisher’s legendary Princess Leia, sharing that the ceremonial dress was created to reflect “the purity and beauty of Leia’s character.”


The regal attire is a symbol of the “royal lineage and commanding presence of the princess”, Prophouse said.

The suit was recently discovered after being hidden in a London attic for years. Propstore said that after it was discovered, it underwent “a meticulous, museum-sized restoration carried out by professional textile conservationists in London”.
