3. Her 1984 Oscar Gown - Princess Leia (Snow Style)

When Meryl won for Silkwood in 1984, did anyone else notice that she had the same high neckline and thick fabric of Leia's snowsuit from The Empire Strikes Back? Perhaps they'd all moved on to Return of the Jedi Leia by then.

10. Her 2007 Golden Globes Gown - Obi-Wan Kenobi

She based it on the Ewan McGregor version because she knew how irritated Alec Guinness always was about being known for his work in Star Wars.

11. Her Premiere Gown for The Iron Lady - Bib Fortuna
