After her appearance wearing the "golden metal bikini", Carrie Fisher almost immediately became a cult sex symbol.
The character is one of the main protagonists of the original Star Wars trilogy, the romantic interest of Han Solo, and revealed as the twin sister of Luke Skywalker as well as the daughter of Anakin Skywalker (Darth Vader) and Padmé Amidala.
The term "Metal Bikini" refers to the iconic slave girl costume worn by Princess Leia when she was held captive in Jabba the Hutt's palace, at the beginning of Return of the Jedi. The skimpy costume consisted of a copper brassiere fastened over the neck and behind the back with string, copper plates at the groin in front and back, a red silk loincloth, and leather boots. There were other various adornments, including a hair fastener, a snake arm-wrap and two bracelets. Last, there was the chain and collar that bound her to Jabba.
