Back in 1983, Rolling Stone magazine ran a pictorial featuring Carrie Fisher at the beach in her so-called “Slave Leia” costume to promote Return of the Jedi. The costume designer for the movie, Aggie Guerard Rodgers, was evoking the design of the costume worn by Dejah Thoris, the protagonist of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Princess of Mars, as envisioned by artist Frank Frazetta.
