Item Description

WISHFUL DRINKING
2009

CARRIE FISHER

Well the force was definitely with her in her recent sold out one-woman show.  The brilliant Carrie Fisher appears in a dramatic “Gypsy Lace” duster of assembled and sewn fibers creating a web-like texture of yarns.  Underneath she wears mid-night blue silk charmeuse pajamas cut from remnants from leftover from the original Broadway garments.  Even the pockets are filled with actual confetti used in the show.  Carrie’s sandals feature silver leather straps adorned with Swarovski crystal beads.  Her wig is a reproduction of her famous Princess Leia hairstyle from Star Wars which is certainly one of the more recognizable hairstyles represented this year.  It has become iconic and has also appeared on numerous products over the years including a PEZ Dispenser and a shampoo bottle.
