Not a lot of changes here, as the original writers of this were very thorough. Mainly I was just clarifying and elaborating some wording.

The only real content change is the colors. The original used the wording "royal blue or royal purple" to describe most of the costume. Although the colors of this really change in different lighting, I think we have enough references now to be certain that it is at least a little bit purple-y. I have rephrased that to be "Royal purple to indigo."

Padmé Amidala was a courageous, hopeful leader, serving as Queen and then Senator of Naboo -- and was also handy with a blaster.

I would say that the only time this costume looks indigo is in the promo shots and the promo shots are notorious for not being true to color. (Lots of image manipulation with those pictures). So they are not something I would base color on. Shape, yes. Color, no.
So to be honest I'd stick with purple. Smile At least that's my opinion.
