Michelle Rodriguez: the Baddest Bitch

Michelle Rodriguez is one of the those rare types of females, a chick who is a total badass, knows it and is proud of it. Off the top of my head, I can think of many six female celebrities who fall into her category. Angelina Jolie used to hold the mantle, but lately she's been in this St. John knits phase, which, like every tragedy, we can only pray that it too will eventually pass (joking, sort of, well not really).

You can dress Michelle up or down, but you tell that she's one of those girls that feels and looks her best in the badass basics: jeans, a wifebeater and boots. On the vast majority of women, a get up like that makes them look like depressed construction workers. On Michelle, she's an eminently watchable and delicious modern day rebel without a cause.

Now just watch. As leather and other badass looks come back into style in the coming year, you're going to see a lot of young women trying to cop this look. Some will make for excellent imposters, but only the proud few, like Rodriguez, will beam authenticity.
