A Beach Photoshoot of Princess Leia in the Gold Bikini Surfaces

Rare photos of a gold-bikini clad Princess Leia.

As The Force Awakens beats out Avatar for the box office number one spot in North America, a recently unearthed and rare 1983 photo shoot of Princess Leia is another thing to celebrate.

The photo series features the then-27-year-old Carrie Fisher donning her gold-bikini on the beach for Rolling Stone, complete with Leia’s dad (Darth Vader), plus a Gamorrean Guard and an Ewok. Check out the photos and this pun below:

When Princess Leia isn’t in her slave outfit, where does she go shopping for clothing?
The Darth Maul, of course.
