Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace - Keira Knightley as Sabé (Queen Amidala’s maid) playing the role of the queen. The travel dress she wore is made of lace and is decorated with the symbol of Naboo royalty. She also wore a huge headpiece embellished with feathers, filigree and gemstones.
According to Ianin McCaig (who worked as concept artist for the movie), “the dress was constructed from a spider-web fabric that took one person working ten hours a day, five days a week over a month to make. The lace pattern was first hand-embroidered onto a thin piece of special fabric that was then submerged. The fabric dissolved in water, leaving only the extraordinary stitching. Each panel of the gown was then sewn onto another panel leaving no seams. The back panel was decorated with vintage jet black beading as well.”
The dress wasn’t worn by Natalie Portman on screen, but only in promotional pictures.
