In a galaxy far, far away, there was a spectacular scarf company known as Zazou.

Zazou was smart to invest in scarves, because everyone, may they be a spaceship pilot or a Jedi warrior, needs to stay warm, and a scarf is the perfect accessory to do just that.

As you may have guessed, this most recent addition of “Scarf Stars” ¬†focuses on the one, the only, “Star Wars.”

In 1980, the second “Star Wars” film was made by George Lucas. It was “Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back,” and one of the settings within its famous plot is that of the icy planet Hoth, in which white snow constantly falls from the sky and blankets the ground below.

While traveling in Hoth, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Han Solo (Harrison Ford) must brace the cold by wrapping themselves in thick coats, goggles, caps and scarves.

In the end, however, even the warmth of their thick scarves and clothes cannot shield them from the snowy tundra. All that can save Luke in the end is the cozy, albeit gruesome, innards of his Tauntaun. Desperate times call for desperate measures, as they say.

Later in the film, in the warmer comforts of the Millennium Falcon, Solo dons another scarf, which keeps his hot head attached to his neck as he screams at the ever-startled C-3PO (Anthony Daniels).

You know you loved the risque, HBO hit “Sex and the City” from 1998 to 2004. And then you enjoyed the two big-budget films, made in 2008 and 2010. Although the story lines were sometimes vain and contrived, the style NEVER disappointed.

All four main characters, Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte York (Kristen Davis) and Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) had their own unique style and take on fashion and accessories.

Samantha was all about the sex appeal, whereas Miranda upheld the chic businesswoman look. And Charlotte (my favorite), was always perfectly preppy and sweet. And then there was the fashion lover and risk taker, Carrie, who, especially in the second “Sex and the City” motion picture, took chances with her scarf accessories.

In “Sex and the City 2,” Carrie and the girls embark on a trip to the United Arab Emirates, in which the unrelenting sun beats down harder and hotter than any summer day in New York.

To help protect herself from the heat, while still remaining trendy and fashionable, Carrie dons a shimmering, striped turban after her and her gal pals arrive at the airport.

Later in the trip, the foursome, who are used to catching rides in limos and cabs, instead trek across the desert dunes on camels. Again, to protect themselves from the relentless heat, Carrie and Samantha, in particular, fashion head pieces and wraps to shield their faces from the afternoon rays.

Which Zazou scarf do you think would match each character’s personality?!

My personal picks include the following:

Carrie:

1102

1102 Chopstick and Noodle Scarf – This youthful, fresh scarf screams Carrie Bradshaw, and I think her small, gold “Carrie” necklace would look dashing underneath this wrap.

Samantha:

6394

6394 Palms Scarf – Inspired by her move to Los Angeles with Smith Jared, I believe the sun-loving Samantha would gravitate toward this resort-wear inspired accessory. While strolling along the California beaches, Sam could lightly drape this black and white piece over an equally chic black bikini, paired with a wide brimmed hat and round black sunglasses. Fabulous!

Charlotte:

797

797 Rose Scarf – Charlotte was always the hopeless romantic. She preferred walks through a vibrant garden in Central Park to walks of shame. Therefore, this beautifully rich, lovely red rose scarf would be perfect for Charlotte’s cheerful and loving personality.

Miranda:

1154

1154 Diagonal Dots Scarf¬†– I think the caramel macchiato color combination would look beautiful next to Miranda’s fiery red hair.

Do you agree with my choices?

I have officially discovered a new trick in fashion: if you are ever unsure of what to wear, whether the stylish conundrum pertains to the weather, location or occasion, you can always get cues and tips from movies.

Want to know what to wear in New York? Watch “Friends with Benefits” or “Sex in the City.” Want to know what to wear as an undercover agent? Watch “Mr. and Mrs. Smith.”

But, if you want to know what to wear during a chilly winter in London, look no further than 2006’s “The Holiday,” starring Jude Law, Kate Winslet, Jack Black and the sleek, chic Cameron Diaz.

In “The Holiday,” two single women in love-ruts swap homes for the holiday season. Cameron’s character, Amanda Woods, “vacations” in London whereas Kate’s character, Iris Simpkins, moves into Amanda’s LA pad.

As the movie’s plot will inform you, the changes of scenery are what these seemingly unlucky women need to turn things around.

And, while falling in love and changing her ways, Cameron’s character, specifically, dresses in darling, winter-ready ensembles in shabby chic palettes, complete with adorable winter caps and cuddly scarves.

Arguably her cutest accessory, however, is that of Graham, played by Jude Law (who is rocking a sweet man scarf himself)! P.S. If you would like to check out scarves for yourself or your customers, visit zazou.com
