The jubilation dress was a traditional Naboo outfit that queens and other female high officials wore at times of rejoicing, or when first meeting a dignitary. It consisted of a white dress, a cape covered in layers of pale pink and yellow veils, and an ivory organza net with a hand-stitched floral pattern that stretched behind the head like a ruff. A panel down the front was decorated with the Symbol of the Royal House of Naboo.
Queen Padmé Amidala wore one in 32 BBY, during a parade celebrating the liberation of Naboo from the Trade Federation. Decades later, Princess Leia Organa of Alderaan briefly borrowed one such dress from Queen Dalné of the Naboo, wearing it while visiting Imperial Moff Quarsh Panaka. The dress increased Leia's resemblance to her long-deceased birth mother Padmé enough to give Panaka a considerable shock when he saw her.
Behind the scenes
The jubilation dress was created for the 1999 prequel trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace. The finished costume was created by costume designer Trisha Biggar and her department.
