Leather is the perfect combination of sexy and strong, making it the most devil-may-care look in Hollywood. Any color, any cut, leather jackets are a seriously seductive style, while leather skirts and pants pack a real punch. How does Hollywood utilize this provocative fabric? Let’s find out.
A movie already known for its attitude and snark, Brad Pitt throws a red leather coat over a patterned button up, making him the epitome of the bad boy stereotype. Brad Pitt plays anti-consumerist and fight club ring leader Tyler Durden, and spends the movie fighting with other men and ‘the man.’ This iconic leather jacket was made for goading lesser men into fights, and that’s pretty much it.

We all know the tale of Grease, where high school seniors do anything in order to fit in and attract a partner for the school dance.

In a desperate bid for Danny’s affections, Sandy dons a leather jacket and some tight pants, bringing us one of the greatest outfits to grace the big screen. This seductive ensemble may teach us a terrible lesson about love, but it does deliver some great fashion inspiration.
