Caitlin's Costume Closet
Leia's ceremonial gown
This gown, Leia's second and final costume from A New Hope, isn't as well-known as her first, the senatorial robes with signature cinammon buns, but in my opinion it's far prettier.

I made this version at the request of some friends from the Star Wars fan group I belong to. We had a silly Olympics-type event at our annual convention, and they wanted to have closing ceremonies where the top three finishers were honored, with Leia giving medals to the top two-- just like A New Hope! *g* Since I whipped this gown up quickly just before the con, it's not accurate, but it's recognizable, which was really all we needed.
