Style Steal: Bad-Ass Action Babes

1 2 3 4 5

The whole “damsel in distress” thing is cute and all, but it’s a total bore. Forget those prissy princesses and take a cue from some of film’s most butt-kicking chicks. I’ve rounded up strong, sexy styles from tough cookies like Rooney Mara’s Lisbeth Salander, Angelina Jolie’s Lara Croft, Bond girls and more. Ain’t nothin’ wrong with lots of black, leather and heavy eyeliner—quintessential basics for one sexy bad-ass babe!

Katniss Everdeen—The Hunger Games

A natural in archery and wise beyond her years, The Hunger Games protagonist kicks some major butt! Katniss’s style is strong, sporty and durable enough to survive the brutal Hunger Games, her signature swooping braid and mockingjay pin always repped proudly in the arena. With Forever 21′s Anorak Jacket ($32.80 on, BDG’s Back Zip Riding Boot ($129, and House of Harlow’s Pave Arrow Necklace ($90,, the fashion odds will be ever in your favor!

    I’m all about the style of Lara Croft.

  • penelope:

    very nice and fierce

  • Crispy:

    love Kate Beckinsale

  • Jenn S.:

    Some of these are odd choices. I definitely would have done Sarah Michelle Gellar’s Buffy over Vesper Lynd… Not only was she a much tougher, stronger character, but her wardrobe was AWESOME.
