When I think of Women being portrayed at their fiercest through film, really only one name comes to mind and that name is Quentin Tarantino. Mostly all of Quentin’s work Includes a badass female who refuses to take ‘No’ for an answer. In inclusion to his recent film “The Hateful Eight” which featured actress Jennifer Jason Leigh who’s character name “Daisy Domergue” if you seen the film you well know that she is one of the most vicious out of all them’ cowboys. Here I want to shed light on not only strong female characters Quentin has treated our eyes with, but the most fashionable and the most iconic. In no particular order.
Mia Wallace of Pulp Fiction -Who would’ve thought that a simple white shirt, a pair of black capri pants and a pair of flats would look so cool and chic through film. Of course it helped that Mrs. Wallace had a femme fatale personality that lit up the screen.
Elle Driver. The moment Elle Driver came into the scene in Kill Bill vol 1 My eyes quickly focused on her impeccable black tailored suit paired with elegant white sleeves peeking out of her black blazer. I didn’t even have to see her eye patch because the way she was dressed, we all knew that she was woman with a mission.
O ren ishii. If you ever watched Japanese movie titled “Lady Blood Snow” then you would know where the character O ren ishii stemmed from. When O ren ishii entered the room even her own men working for her feared her. O ren ishii was dressed in traditional well tailored Japanese kimono making O ren ishii not only the fiercest but the most cultural villain in Kill Bill.
Bridget Von Hammersmark of Inglourious Basterds. Bridget was smart, quick witted and could hang with the german boys at a pub, all while looking glamorous and that was her badass aesthetic.
Shosanna Dreyfus in Inglourious Basterds. Now in the first scenes she was pictured as fragile power-less character but as the story begins to unravel Shosanna gets her revenge and what better color than wearing Red while doing so.
There’s truly lots more strong female leads out there in the cinema world but this about concludes Quentin Tarantino’s Fashionable and Fierce women in film which makes going to the movies a lot more worth while.
