The Minions might have taken on looks inspired by fashion’s most prominent figures earlier this summer, but now they’ve been usurped by Yoda, R2-D2 and Chewbacca.

Yes, in celebration of the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens this week, fashion site Stylight has once again transformed a number of well known fashion names, this time including the likes of Anna Wintour, Karl Lagerfeld and his cat Choupette, Victoria Beckham, Cara Delevingne, Kanye West, Jean Paul Gaultier and Miley Cyrus.

Each of them takes on a different lead role, with the likes of Delevingne becoming Chewbacca and Beckham assuming Darth Vader.

“Star Wars has been a recurring theme on runways for many years now. Who could forget Chanel’s A/W 2010 iceage collection with distinctly Chewbacca inspired fur onesies, Balmain’s C-3PO influenced all-gold A/W 2013 runway looks and of course Rodarte’s A/W 2015 collection which actually featured Star Wars characters printed onto flowing maxi dresses,” writes the Stylight team.

Check out each of the looks they’ve created in more detail, below:

Infographic: This year’s $2m Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra reimagined in champagne, selfies and boob jobs

lily_VS_fantasybra

Victoria’s Secret Angel Lily Aldridge will wear this year’s Fantasy Bra at the brand’s annual fashion show tonight in New York. Worth $2 million, the piece includes 6,500 precious gems ranging from yellow sapphires to pink quartz and topaz, all set in 18-karat gold, alongside 375 carats of diamonds.

Called the “Fireworks Fantasy Bra”, it was designed by Geneva-based jeweler Mouawad, and took a reported 685 hours to make.

It will be shown this evening at Victoria’s Secret 20th anniversary show, alongside other models including Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, as well as music from Selena Gomez, Ellie Goulding and The Weeknd.

The best thing we’ve spotted about it so far however? The infographic below from fashion site Stylight listing 20 alternative luxe and fun things you could buy for the price of the diamond-encrusted bra. Anyone up for 432,000 selfie sticks? Or how about eight return private jets from London to New York? Plus a serious amount of champagne for the ride – 13,100 bottles of Dom Perignon is the equivalent of filling 191 Olympic sized swimming pools. Or if you replace the Fantasy Bra with 26,000 regular Victoria’s Secret lingerie sets, that’s a new set everyday for 71 years.
