5 year old discusses Princess Leia's slave outfit with her father
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Star Wars!
I would just ESCAPE ... and keep wearing the dress, because it is nice!
Brilliant, I like her thinking.
Good Reddit comment:
It's actually pretty funny... the original plan was apparently for Leia to wear something else as a slave. But Carrie Fisher was livid that she had gotten in such good shape for the role and always wore big bulky cloaks. She asked to wear something revealing, and the results speak for themselves.
Little girl has a point -- it's only demeaning if you don't want to wear it. It could be an overcoat, and it would be demeaning to make somebody wear it if they don't want to.
