A History Of Women Who Love To Wear Black

Some people wear black because it's flattering, matches everything, or because it conveniently hides spilled coffee and hot sauce. For others, black is more than a color — it's a lifestyle, and nothing but the inkiest hue will do. Black is as much a part of their style DNA as bangs were to Bettie Page, or pearls to Coco. Is it a coincidence that these women who choose to deck their closets in noir are a little offbeat, a little badass, a little dangerous? We think not.
In honor of the witchiest month of the year, we pay tribute to 15 women (real and fictional) who, as Lil' Kim might say, "dressed in all black like The Omen," and looked scary good doing it.
