Star Wars: Top 10 Character Looks, Ranked (2023)

With Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker creeping closer, more and more details about the blockbuster are beginning to emerge. Fans were sent into a frenzy recently when the Sith Trooper was shown to the world, with its all-red armor a far cry from anything we've seen previously and giving people a tease as to what lies ahead.

Star Wars has always been able to conjure excitement by releasing character looks that get the audience excited for any forthcoming blockbuster. In preparation forthe final installment of the Skywalker saga, time to look at the10 best designs throughout the entire franchise so far.

Captain Phasma (The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi)

Star Wars: Top 10 Character Looks, Ranked (1)

When Disney announced the character of Captain Phasma, played by Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie, people were immediately excited. She was made out of chrome armor, complete with chrome helmet, and possessed a staff and a blaster. It was certainly all very new, with George Lucas never venturing downthis route during his time at the helm.

The reason it doesn't rank higher, though, is that Phasma's cool appearance seemed to go to waste. She was barely in 2015's The Force Awakens and had very little screen time in The Last Jedi before meeting her demise at the hands of Finn. Still, though, her outfit was certainly impressive...most impressive.

Anakin Skywalker (Revenge Of The Sith)

Say what you want about the Star Wars prequels, some of the costumes were a class above those from the original trilogy, which is no small feat. George Lucas got it right when it came to the character of Anakin Skywalker, with Hayden Christensen sporting dark robes in Revenge of the Sith, the movie when Anakin completes his transformation into Darth Vader.

The robes were different from those worn by Obi-Wan Kenobi, with those a far lighter color. Therefore, Anakin's look in the final movie of the prequel trilogy was symbolic of his character's slide towards the darkness. They would also be the robes that would become engulfed in flames when Skywalker falls to his former master on the lava planet of Mustafar.

Jango Fett (Attack of the Clones)

Star Wars: Top 10 Character Looks, Ranked (3)

We'd seen Boba Fett during the original trilogy, both in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. But when Attack of the Clones was released in the summer of 2002, fans were introduced to Boba's father, Jango Fett, who was a bounty hunter working on behalf of Jedi-turned-Sith Count Dooku.

In order to make Jango different, Lucas gave him a brilliant appearance consisting of silver armor, purple undergarments, and a silvery blue helmet. Jango was actually more prominent in the movie than Boba was in any of the original films, too, and his speed at withdrawing his gun from his holster showed that he was one of the deadliest individuals in the galaxy during his heyday.

Darth Maul (The Phantom Menace)

While The Phantom Menace continues to divide fans, the character of Darth Maul is still regarded as one of the better aspects of the movie. When the first trailer released all those years ago, people at the time were left excited for the character due to how different he looked to the antagonist of the original trilogy, Darth Vader.

Maul had Ninja-style robes but what made his look so cool was his double-bladed lightsaber, something that was new and different for the time. With his tattooed face and horns, he drew comparisons to the devil and had a fearful aura about him, making his look iconic not just for the movie, but the entire franchise.

Leia Organa (A New Hope)

Star Wars: Top 10 Character Looks, Ranked (5)

Throughout her time in the Star Wars saga, Leia Organa has sported an array of different outfits, each more spectacular than the next. There's obviously her bikini appearance in Return of the Jedi, the elegant dress she wears on Cloud City in The Empire Strikes Back,and her authoritative attire from The Force Awakens.

However, it isher relatively low-key look from A New Hope that stands out. She's a Princess yet doesn't act - or look - like one, showing that any girl has the potential to be a hero, something that was relatively revolutionary for the time. The outfit also demonstrated her modesty because she's always willing to get her hands dirty, despite her royal title.

Poe Dameron (The Force Awakens)

Star Wars: Top 10 Character Looks, Ranked (6)

Poe Dameron is the first Star Wars character of the sequel trilogyto be introduced in The Force Awakens. Assoon as he pops up on the screen, you can't help but think that this guy, in his snazzy leather jacket, just looks cool. Obviously, he's different to Han Solo but the casual manner of his appearance immediately suggests he has the same slick, cocksure feel about him.

The jacket is given to Finn after Poe rescues him from Starkiller Base but it's the Resistance pilot who sports it better. Whether he manages to get it back in The Rise of Skywalker is something only time will tell but one thing's for sure: Poe will be as confident and abrasive as ever.

Luke Skywalker (Return of the Jedi)

Star Wars: Top 10 Character Looks, Ranked (7)

Luke Skywalker, like his sister Leia Organa, has sported some iconic looks throughout his time in the saga. Who can forget his farmer look from A New Hope, his action-man appearance from The Empire Strikes Back, or his Jedi robes from The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi? However, his appearance from Return of the Jedi makes it to fourth on our list.

During that movie, Luke wears black, symbolizing the temptation of the darkness amid his battle against Emperor Palpatine, Darth Vader, and the Empire. When he brings Vader back to the light side, his robes come undone to show a white stripe, signifying the fact that he's good at heart despite appearing on the verge of changing sides at one point.

Lando Calrissian (Solo)

Star Wars: Top 10 Character Looks, Ranked (8)

We knew Lando Calrissian likes to look dapper during the original trilogy, with his suave robes in Bespin making him stand out from the rest of the planet's inhabitants. But, when Solo released in 2018, it showed just how much importance the Galaxy's favorite charmer places on looking the part.

Lando's colorful shirt and white cape combo are certainly good, but it's his yellow and black number that Billy Dee Williams will be sporting in The Rise of Skywalker when it comes out in December. They are two looks that Lando and only Lando can ever pull off - if anybody else tried it, they'd just look foolish. No wonder Han Solo felt so threatened when standing by his side...

Darth Vader (Revenge of the Sith, Rogue One, Original Trilogy)

Star Wars: Top 10 Character Looks, Ranked (9)

Is there a more iconic villain in Hollywood than Darth Vader? Seriously. With his all-black costume, complete with a black cape and a scary black mask responsible for that iconic breathing, the character's design is instantly identifiable. Every single year people dress up as the Sith Lord, who dons the costume during Revenge of the Sith, Rogue One, and all three movies from the Original Trilogy.

Kylo Ren may be the bad guy of the sequel trilogy so far but nothing will ever come close to the outfit his Grandfather wore during his heyday. Darth Vader is simply iconic.

Padmé Amidala (The Phantom Menace)

Star Wars: Top 10 Character Looks, Ranked (10)

As a Queen, Padmé Amidala always dressed elegantly. That said, her costume in The Phantom Menace stood out from the rest, becoming inseparable from the prequel trilogy and, in particular, the first movie of the saga.

We knew Leia Organa had been a princess from Alderaan but her mother dresses in a way that surpasses her daughter's unique sense of style. Padmé's red and yellow robes are a feast for the eyes and the headpiece is certainly from a galaxy far, far away. George Lucas certainly got it right when it comes to character looks and Padmé's attire is one that you'd only ever see in a Star Wars movie.
