Action Heroine: Kate Beckinsale in Van Helsing

Gypsy Princess-chic is a term that should be added to the Fashion Dictionary.

Possibly the most problematic of all style-types in films, the Action Heroine is usually one of my favourites; she kicks ass, she looks good, and she's usually the one who saves the day (even though the hero won't admit it).

Generally these action heroine babes are a little too scantily clad, which is why Anna Valerious from Van Helsing (2004) is so special. She's a gypsy princess on a vampire-hunt, so she wears leggings, corsets, velvet crop jackets and boots. She's not too unnecessarily sexualised. 

Major style inspiration.

Although there are many well-dressed women who kick ass in films, Anna is often forgotten because the film was so disappointing.

Well, this look never disappoints.
