Angelina Jolie is one of my favorite actresses because of her ability to assume a testosterone-laden action role and make it her own. And she wears the most fabulous clothes as she takes names and kicks tails, except the dowdy mess she wears in Salt. I know she's not supposed to look like Lara Croft, but come on! We need some exciting fantasy costumes for Halloween 2010.
Speaking of fantasies, here are Five Great Action Hero Outfits That You Could Wear to Work, just to make things a little interesting on casual Friday!
If you could wear anything to work without getting reprimands from the boss, which one of these action hero outfits would you wear?
1. The Salt
Ideal for: Anyone threatened with a pink slip because you are just too hot for the office place; or, a REAL spy that needs to remain under the radar.
Never for: Anyone back on the market and looking for fast love.
2. The Catwoman
Ideal for: The corporate shark, attorney, office assistant, social worker.
Never for: Veterinarian, dog groomer, or pet store entrepreneur.
3. The Kill Bill
Ideal for: The out of work fitness trainer, on your first day back in the gym. (Don't forget your sword to remind those snobbish, skinny chicks to be on their best behavior).
Never for: Marriage counselors.
4. The Ripley
Ideal for: Anyone on the lam from their nudist colony, and are s-l-o-w-l-y making a transition back to the rest of society; supermodels.
Never for: Most of us.
5. The AEon FLUX
Ideal for: Hair stylists! Pack your shears in that nifty little case.
Never for: Religious studies professors, postal service workers, pediatricians, grade school teachers; it's just so very wrong for you.
Note: This is fantasy land, please don't wear these outfits to work, unless you're in the theater or adult services industry. Please.
