The viceroy gown was a type of red gown. Trade Federation Viceroy Nute Gunray wore the viceroy gown with a red hat while on the planets Utapau and Mustafar in the final days of the Clone Wars. In the final moments of the war, Gunray was struck down by Lord Vader at the final redoubt of the Separatist Council on Mustafar and died wearing his viceroy gown. The gown remained on the Trade Federation leader's rotting corpse for decades onwards.
