Rare Photos Of Carrie Fisher’s Promo Shoot For ‘Return Of The Jedi.’
As the daughter of America’s sweetheart Debbie Reynolds and pop singer Eddie Fisher, Carrie Fisher is Hollywood royalty. She has written best-selling books and is credited with being a “script doctor” for films including Hook, Sister Act, and The Wedding Singer to name a few.
Nevertheless, she will always be best known as princess Leia Organa from the Star Wars franchise. Princess Leia’s costumes and hairstyles are considered cultural icons. Her most popular and frequently imitated outfit is her metal bikini she wore in Return of the Jedi.
Although the bikini only appeared in two scenes, fans to this day cannot get enough of Fisher’s sensual attire and her toned figure. Here are ten vintage photos of Fisher from a photoshoot for Rolling Stone magazine in 1983.

Leia's metal bikini was worn when she was chained to Jabba the Hutt's seat as a slave.
Carrie Fisher told Rolling Stones magazine in 1983, "In Return of the Jedi, Leia gets to be more feminine, more supportive, more affectionate. But let's not forget that these movies are basically boys' fantasies."
The photoshoot was part of the magazine's Summer Double Issue in 1983.
