Blade Runner is not the movie you’d immediately think of to watch with friends on a lazy Sunday. The 1982 sci-fi movie is primarily famous for making nerdy guys drool. However, Sean Young’s character in the movie, Rachael, inspires me fashion-wise so much that I’ll watch the movie just to catch a glimpse of her effortless style. That red lipstick. The crazy hairdo. Those structured, sleek, femme fatale suits. Rachael never seemed to try too hard, and always had a classic, crisp outfit put together. She oozed confidence and sex appeal even when wearing a shirt buttoned up to her neck. Her tailored clothes showed off her curves without revealing too much skin. I also love that the outfits were devoid of bright color: Rachael stuck mostly to black, white, gray, and tan, with a splash of red thrown in here and there. Call me crazy, but I’m even digging the shoulder pads. It was the 80s, after all. Go big or go home.
