November's Space Babe: Carrie Fisher

November's Space Babe is none other than Carrie Fisher as Her Royal Highness, Princess Leia Organa, the damsel in distress and rebel leader of the original Star Wars trilogy. It has taken great restraint not to feature the infamous "Slave Leia" metal bikini on this blog before now, but I decided a while back that only Miss Fisher's iconic princess could be Space: 1970's first anniversary Space Babe.

The daughter of Hollywood "royalty" - Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, Carrie Fisher's portrayal of the tough-yet-vulnerable rebel leader secured her own place in cinematic history. She also became a perhaps unlikely sex symbol, and the first celebrity crush for millions of boys during the 1970s, myself among them. Probably didn't hurt that George Lucas apparently felt that women in his universe didn't wear brassieres - unless they were made of metal....
