Even Yoda would have been proud at this spectacle.
Cara Delevingne, Mindy Kaling, Zoe Saldana and a flock of other celebrities took to social media to share snaps of themselves dressed as Star Wars characters to celebrate the highly anticipated opening of The Force Awakens, the seventh film in the iconic franchise, on Thursday.
And Cara probably won the award for the day’s geekiest costume.
The beautiful British model was completely unrecognisable as the green, slug like alien Jabba the Hutt as she stood inside a theatre lobby, wielding two lightsabers.
The 23-year-old captioned it: ‘Watching Star Wars in style’ although how she intended to sit on her long tail was a moot point.
Mindy Kaling was another star who really got inside her character, dressed up as Hans Solo’s Wookiee sidekick Chewbacca for her holiday card.
The 36-year-old also included one of the new additions to the Star Wars family – Chewy’s son Lumpy – in her photo.
‘Happy holidays from our family to yours. Love, Chewy and Lumpy,’ she wrote on the Instagram image.
Country stars Tim McGraw, 48, and his wife Faith Hill, also 48, planned a surprise for their daughters, Gracie, 18, Maggie, 17, and 14-year-old Audrey on Thursday morning.
Tim dressed up as a member of evil Supreme Chancellor Palpatine’s elite Red Guard, while Faith assumed full battle pose as one of the rebels.
Tim captioned his Instagram snap: ‘Happy @starwars Day!!! This is how we woke up our kids!! #TheForceAwakens.’
‘The Force is strong in this household,’ according to Zoe Saldana, 37, who posted a cute picture with artist husband, Marco Perego, and their one-year-old twins, Bowie and Cy.
All were seen from the knees down wearing socks featuring a different character from the film.
UFC star and actress Ronda Rousey captioned her snap: ‘About last night… Star Wars was awesome… I’m a little short for a Stormtrooper.’
The 28-year-old was joined by friends in impressive Darth Maul and Boba Fett costumes to take in the hotly anticipated film.
Meanwhile Facebook entrepreneur Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan swaddled their newborn daughter Max in a Jedi cloak as she lay between a fluffy Wookiee, Darth Vader’s black mask, new Droid BB-8 and a baby-sized lightsaber.
He captioned it, predictably: ‘The Force is strong with this one.’
One thought on “Cara Delevingne dresses up as Jabba The Hutt as The Force Awakens celebs’ inner geek to celebrate Star Wars blockbuster opening”
In what appears to be some form of dress up, or cosplay, or whatever it is that people in the heathen Western world do when they try to look like someone else or something else, actress Cara Delevingne dressed up as the powerful Muslim Sheik Jabba al-Hutt. The great Jabba is of course known for getting killed in a fierce battle against Luke Skywalker, who learned the ways of the Force from his old, small Asian master Yoda. It must be said, however, that Cara’s costume looks more like a Muslim man’s mighty phallus than like Jabba. Therefore, if Cara had really desired to look like a piece of a Muslim man’s enormous junk, her costume should have been covered by a pelt of hair and also by some warts.
