Of Grace Jones’ Katrina at Halle Berry’s Catwoman, there is something seductive about a woman who plays a villain and exploits her inner bad girl. Sometimes a fierce outfit is enough to make us forget why we looked down on a character in the first place. Good fashion can alter your perception of a villain. How can it be bad when they look so beautiful?
If you like a bad girl with a sleek look, here are five villains whose fashion choices took precedence over their bad manners.
Queen Akasha played by Aaliyah
Although he is several centuries old, Akasha appeared as a young bloodsucker in Queen of the damned. With her mission to find Lestat, a vampire whose music woke her from her eternal sleep, Akasha’s crown jewels and strategically placed bra kept her from blending in with the locals. The mother of all vampires was unstoppable. She had no empathy for anyone who crossed her path and glided across the barely dressed screen. The temptress captivated us with her hypnotic dances and literally set anyone who walked through Lestat on fire.
Catwoman played by Halle Berry
While the movie wasn’t as successful as the creators hoped, Halle Berry appeared with rock-hard abs and a costume that had her own press tour. The purrfect idea didn’t translate at the box office but made its money shit according to Ms. Berry. A shy Patience transforms into Catwoman after being killed for crossing paths with her boss’s wife, Sharon Stone. Death is temporary as a cat licks and saves his life giving him powers, confidence, and the fiercest black wardrobe. Cat Woman’s iconic whip, strapless leather bra, pants and mask have everyone hoping to capture the look on their own.
Katrina played by Grace Jones
In the classic vampire movie Vamp, Katrina was played by the iconic Grace Jones. Although Ms. Jones is naked most of the time, and is only covered in paint in certain scenes with three spools of silver thread strategically placed on her body, she still maintains a strong and fashionable presence. Jones plays the leader of a group of vampires who run a strip club after dark in an effort to lure their prey inside. With her wardrobe barely there,
Wilhelmina Slater played by Vanessa Williams
Wilhelmina Slater (Vanessa Williams) Although fashion is always synonymous with legend Vanessa Williams, her character on “Ugly Betty” landed her Entertainment Weekly’s list of the best bitches on TV. Wilhelmina doesn’t even need to speak to sow fear in the hearts of those around her. Slater’s signature long bob with everything from Alexander McQueen to Dolce & Gabanna easily makes him the villain you can only love.
It’s because of those fierce villains who bring Pinterest boards to life and why Halloween is one of the most expensive holidays. I mean who wouldn’t want to be one of these villains for a day and for some a little longer than that.
