Please note: Women in the movies and on tv have a team to make them look good. Literally, a team: Hair, makeup, wardrobe, tailors, trainers, nutritionists, chefs, plastic surgeons, aestheticians, manicurists, hair “technicians”, psychiatrists, directors, cinematographers, editors, and photo departments. And we probably left some out.
This team allows stars to pull off looks that would otherwise not work for a normal female. At least not in public. Here are some of the looks in question:
Linda Hamilton in Terminator. Perfect for the character, but if you do it, you’ll be hard pressed to look anything but greasy.
Charlize Theron in Aeon Flux. Gorgeous lady, no doubt. In this context, not all that goth looking. But that is exactly what the neighbors would say when describing you to the police if they saw you walking out of the house with a gun in this getup.
