Army of Me

I have always loved loved loved Tank Girl
For the uninitiated, it's basically a campy, post-apocalyptic action movie based on a comic strip, set in the now-not-so-distant year 2033, as seen through the day-glo raver lens of the early 90's. It's totally corny, totally awesome. It has Naomi Watts, pre her serious, blonde actress days as a very shy "Jet Girl" with a very heavy Australian accent. Lori Petty as, in essence, a bleach blonde, futuristic Gwen Stefani...on MDMA...with guns. And for god's sakes, Ice-T as a mutant kangaroo. And I can easily see where some designers could get there cues from her post nuclear meets Sid and Nancy style.

House of Holland. Jet Girl would wear this on a date, when she gets out of her wallflower phase.

Louise Goldin. The ladies would wear these on a jaunt into Liquid Silver.

Alexander Wang. For kicking Water and Powers' ass.
