If you don't know what intergalactic holiday today is, you must be living under a Death Star--it's May the 4th, aka Star Wars Day! (May the force... = May the Fourth. Got it? Good.) And judging by the amount of interest the fashion world has taken in the classic sci-fi saga over the years, it's pretty safe to say that dressing up like your fave George Lucas-created character is no longer a luxury strictly reserved for your local Star Wars convention!

Remember Paris Fashion Week? That crazy Balenciaga Darth Vader hat was making everyone question the validity of their paternal figures. And just last week, Dita von Teese appeared at the Christian Louboutin retrospective exhibit--as a HOLOGRAM. At this rate, we honestly wouldn't be surprised if next season's Valentino braids evolve into Princess Leia Cinnabons. So whatever Star Wars-inspired get-up you choose today, may the fashion force be with you!
