RIP John Mollo, who created the iconic costumes of Star Wars

Mollo was a military history expert who acted as a historical advisor on several films, including The Charge of the Light Brigade and Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon, before progressing to costume design. 

His work for Star Wars earned him his first Oscar in 1977 and he would go on to receive his second alongside Bhanu Athaiya in 1983 for Richard Attenborough’s Gandhi starring Ben Kingsley. He also worked on other classic films such as Ridley Scott’s Alien, The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes, Air America, Hanna’s War, Chaplin, and Event Horizon.
