  • tankgirl

    "Tank Girl: (1995)

    Takes place: In the year 2033, where the world's water and power supply are being controlled by nefarious sources. Tank Girl is a member of a resitance group who steals back water for themselves and also fights against a group of renegades called the Rippers. 

    What she's wearing: Combat boots for butt-kicking, a bomber jacket, and a baby tee. An outfit that would not be out of place, say, at a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert in the mid-90s. 

    Wearability: Somebody zip those pants up. 5 (out of 10)

  • Barbarella (1968) 2

    "Barbarella" (1968)

    Takes place: In the year (wait for it) 40,000. In this high camp film, Jane Fonda's Barbarella must rescue an inventor from a far off planet, but runs into trouble (natch). 

    The outfit: A sexy space onesie, complete with thigh-high boots, stun gun and cuff bracelet. 

    Wearabilty: 2 (out of 10) — unless you're Miley Cyrus, in which case, by all means ... 

  • Gaultier Fifth-Element

    The Fifth Element (1997)

    Takes place: During the 23rd century, the plot revolves around a battle between good (played by Milla Jovovich as Leeloo) and Great Evil, played by, well, Gary Oldman. 

    The outfit: Designed by Jean Paul Gaultier, the leotard worn by Jovovich has become, perhaps, even more iconic than the movie itself. 

    Wearabilty: 1 (out of 10) 

  • Daryl-Hannah-as-Pris-in-Blade-Runner-blade-runner-8242803-1516-2260

    Blade Runner (1982)

    Takes place: In a dystopian, future Los Angeles. The year? 2019. Humans share the world with robots, known as replicants, who model themselves after humans in every way. 

    The outfit: Replicant Priss dresses as a bedraggled glam rock street walker. 

    Wearability: 3 (out of 10)

  • blade-runner-1982-36-g

    Blade Runner (1982)

    The outfit: Sean Young plays a replicant who truly believes she's human. Unlike Darryl Hannah's Priss character, Young's Rachael has a classy 1940s vibe. 

    Wearbility: 8 (out of 10), because that fur coat is a lot of look. 

  • tron legacy olivia wilde quorra wallpaper wide-other

    "Tron: Legacy" (2010)

    Takes Place: In 2009, but in an alternate universe inside a computer. Inside a computer! 

    The outfit: Olivia Wilde's Quorra is an "isomorphic algorithm," and like everyone inside the "Tron" universe, wears skintight glow-in-the-dark unitards. 

    Wearability: 1 (out of 10)

The second “Hunger Games” installment comes out nationwide this Friday, and we can’t wait—despite the fact that it seems Jennifer Lawrence and company spend a good deal of the movie in wetsuits.

But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some major fashion moments in the film, as clearly evidenced by the above photo. In fact, the costumes in the “Hunger Games” franchise is so fierce, that it warranted its own Net-A-Porter collection. The 16-piece Capitol Couture by Trish Summerville (the “Hunger Games” costume designer) line goes on sale November 21, and items start at just $100 — which is much less expensive than, say, paying with your life, we think.
