Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga is getting sexy as Princess Leia in a hot new bikini photo. Fashion designer Gorga, who also posed alongside sister-in-law Teresa Giudice in Baywatch-style bathing suits for US Weekly’s Hot Bodies issue, flaunts her physique and sports Want Hair extensions for a gorgeous look that pays tribute to one of film’s most beloved characters.

She was styled by Julius Michael in an outfit just like the one Carrie Fisher wore to play the popular Star Wars role. (Fun fact: Fischer’s original bikini sold for $96,000 in an online auction in 2015!) On Twitter, Michael said it was one of the most fun looks he’s ever recreated, and we can see why!

And while you’ll have to wait until July 10 for the premiere of Season 7, you can check out our favorite quotes from the amazing trailer.
