Darth Vader, Slave Princess.

(click ad, via) Updated. As commenter AngelaV points out, that's of course Princess Leia's slave outfit, not, as I thought, Xena. Yesterday, as you noodle-arm nerds know, was Star Wars Day. In response, posted a selection of TV and print ads that have—either legally or illegally—capitalized on Vader's image. Here, Bed, a gay bar in Manila, risked a cease-and-desist order from George Lucas to promote its Saturday night drag show.
Previous Darth Vader ads:
Vader's subsequent bowel movement was a little on the dark side.
Vader's fey Belgian brother, "Darth Fladder," sez turn off the lights for Earth Hour.

That's the Leia Slave Girl costume, not Xena. So all they have to worry about is Lucas
