Rebel Belles: Outlaw Beauty On The Big Screen


Jessica Chastain, indie movie darling and newly named face of YSL’s Manifesto fragrance, is a burlesque dancer-turned-femmefatale in John Hillcoat’s Lawless. While it’s the men—Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, and Jason Clark specifically—that are pictured flouting order, disobeying authority, and courting trouble (hence the title) in this newfangled western, the film made us think about the bevy of babes that have been enshrined in Tinseltown’s hall of fame for playing good girls gone bad—and in some cases, bad girls who never gave a damn about being good in the first place. As the film hits theaters this week, we rounded up our favorite female radicals, vigilantes, outlaws, subversives, and provocateurs. The fairer sex? Hardly.
