About the Costume

Designed by Trisha Biggar, this costume from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, often called the “Return to Naboo” costume or the “Travel Gown,” has been used twice. It was designed for Natalie Portman’s portrayal of Queen Padmé Amidala. Ten years later, Lucasfilm allowed many of the original props from their productions to be borrowed for the 2009 Halloween episode of The Today Show. The entire cast dressed up as characters from the Star Wars Universe, and Natalie Morales not only went as Padmé, but was also fortunate enough to be able to wear the original costume from the film. 

This costume has been exhibited several times over the past few years, most notably in London and France, alongside many other original costumes. Fantastic and highly detailed exhibit photos of this gown can be found at The Padawan’s Guide to Star Wars Movie Costumes. You can also learn more about the history and design of this costume, and many others from the Star Wars prequels in Trisha Biggar’s book Dressing a Galaxy: The Costumes of Star Wars.

Costume Commentary

  1. There seems to be something missing under the back veil of the headpiece. It’s shaped on Portman’s head, and simply conforms to Morales’ head

  2. I came across your site doing some research, and thought I wouldconfirm theabove top was purchased for Eternal Sunshine, and was not recycled from Firefly.

    I’m the owner of this costume (the Eternal Sunshine one), and everything was bought new for the production. Some pieces used in the film were acquired from vintage shops, but new in the sense nothing was reused from a prior film or television show.
