Fans were thrilled to see Ahsoka Tano’s voice actor Ashley Eckstein attending the world premiere of The Rise of Skywalker last month but what really caught their attention was the stylish Ahsoka-inspired outfit the Her Universe founder wore to the star-studded event.
The vibrant red-orange velvet suit was adorned with a blue and white striped lapel – clearly modelled after Ahsoka’s lekku and montrals – and was designed by Andrew MacLaine. MacLaine was one of the winners of the 2014 Her Universe Fashion Show and has created a number of custom outfits for Eckstein in recent years, including the much-loved Ahsoka Tano LEGO couture dress she wore back in 2016. Eckstein completed her look with some Ahsoka-inspired braids and makeup by Veronica Nunez.
Since the film was not even a month old at the time of writing, I’ve avoided discussing a certain detail from The Rise of Skywalker both here and on social media. Those of you who have already seen the final instalment in the Skywalker saga will know exactly which scene I’m referring to and what it might imply.
