It’s no secret that I love the Prequels, Padmé Amidala, and oh so much of her gorgeous wardrobe. Therefore, it was inevitable that I would decided to torture myself by making myself rank all 36 outfits she wears. It took the better part of an evening and I was still second guessing myself days later. The rules were these: I had to rank everything that Natalie Portman wore in the Prequel Trilogy films. So that meant that none of her animated looks were included and that I didn’t include Amidala dresses worn by Sabé or Cordé. You can see larger versions of all of these dresses over at the ever awesome Padawan’s Guide.
We’ll start from the bottom. (Come on, you didn’t really think we’d give you #1 up front, did you?)
Coming in at #36 is the Hospital Gown that Padmé dies in. It’s a white robe. Only moderately more stylish are her Coruscant Nightgown from Attack of the Clones (#35), her Aqua Georgette Nightgown like look (#34), and the Dressing Gown (#33) she wears when Obi-Wan tells her that Anakin killed younglings, both from Revenge of the Sith. Honestly, I had no idea how many nightgowns this woman wore until I started this ranking. They are the only thing that save the Tatooine Chic Poncho (#32) and Peasant Disguise (#31) from being on the bottom. They’re both perfectly serviceable looks but… this is Padmé we’re talking about.
