Let’s talk superheroes. Or rather, let’s talk seeing the superhero vibe in a high fashion collection. Enter the Zuhair Murad Resort 2016 Collection. There may have been a lot of variety and perhaps not a ton of cohesion amongst the collection as a whole but certain parts of it just screamed runway superhero.
The superhero costume landscape has definitely been changing as of late with the fabulous new designs by artists like Jamie McKelvie, Kris Anka, and Kevin Wada but there are some staples that will never change. We’ll always see the catsuits, the cutouts, the bold colors, and colorblocking that are now supplemented by more interesting shapes and seam-lines.
I mean, somethings will always stay classic. Like lightning bolt motifs.

When it comes to speculating what characters might wear from the runways of our world, it’s well established that I like to play favorites which means it’s time to take another look at Tenel Ka, Queen Mother of Hapes and Warrior of Dathomir. This time though, we’ll be looking at both sides of the
Dathomir’s aesthetic is very much informed by their culture of warrior clans. While no one would try and claim that any of the below looks by Burberry and Michael Kors are fitting for riding rancors, they definitely capture the feel of Dathomir.
Hapes, on the other hand, doesn’t embrace their hardcore warrior or snake skin side quite that much. Both this Versace and Zuhair Murad definitely give off a Hapan vibe with the fabric of the Zuhair Murad being something that would likely appeal to Tenel Ka.
While I recognize that this Versace isn’t something that Tenel Ka would jump at to wear, there are elements to it that I think would definitely fit with the Hapan look combined with Tenel Ka’s own preferences. In particular, I’m referring to the arm pieces and the hood and the skirt itself definitely reads Hapan.
For a bonus round, have this Valentino dress which I could see Tenel Ka wearing in a more casual Hapan setting that would still restrict her from dressing more Dathomiri.
