The Dark Approach: Amanda Seyfried in In Time

Time is money. Style is infinite.

Sci-fi and style have a very tricky relationship. Quite often you'll find that futuristic depictions of somewhat dystopian societies centre around characters who either have very little to no financial stability, or live in a world where money is not a contributing factor to existence. These types of films barely typify influential style.

Unless it's The Hunger Games.

However, every once in a while, a sci-fi film will emerge where style plays a big role in the storyline. Although In Time (2011) may not be great film in itself, it does present some outstanding looks.

Sylvia Weis (Amanda Seyfried) is a sheltered rich girl who is taken hostage by the poor Will (Justin Timberlake). Obviously, they fall in love, and she converts to his righteous cause.

Whilst on the run, Sylvia dons some incredibly chic, yet somehow intense attire and platform heels. Though her looks seem overwhelming impractical, you simply must take them for what they are: badass looks.  

Costume designer extraordinaire Colleen Atwood has yet again outdone herself.
