Even Vogue can't escape "Star Wars" fever

The fashion magazine, whose offices are now located in One World Trade Center, hit the local streets for its re-imagining of a "Star Wars" love story — Princess Leia (a model wearing thousands of dollars in fashion-foward gear) falls for a Wookiee.

The pair traipse around the World Trade Center, dancing at the 9/11 Memorial Pools, planning to live inside the yet-to-open WTC Oculus, and lightsabering around the World Trade Center PATH station. 

The less than two-minute video, called "I Did It All for the Wookiee: 24 Hours of Love, Lightsabers, and Star Wars in New York City" — also has the couple leap-frogging with other "Star Wars" characters and using a selfie stick.

And Vogue Leia offers these insights: "You can image with my buns it's really hard to keep moving all the time" and "cause I don't really cook, like, I'm a princess."
