In Atomic Blonde, Charlize Theron takes the words “dressed to kill” to another level. Her character MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton brutally kicks and punches her way through the bad guys while rocking killer, 80s inspired outfits.
80s fashion plays a major role in this spy film. From her platinum blonde bob to her leather skirts, her style is made up of bold pieces that make her stand out.
Lorraine even teases this in an epic one-liner: Trapped in a corner by her enemies, she simply says “If I had known, I would have worn a different outfit,” right before she fights every single one in a white wool coat.
There are so many other iconic fashion moments in Atomic Blonde that give us more insight on who she is and what she fights for. If you’re in need of style inspo, add these all-black outfits from the movie to your closet.
1. Her classic black trench coat
Behind every great spy is a dark and mysterious trench coat. And behind every dark trench coat is a girl who is obsessed with the color black.
2. Her high neck cocktail dress
This little black dress is timeless. Although we only see the top half of this sleek, fitted number, Charlize’s character slays this look. If you squint really hard when you’re watching the trailer, you’ll catch a glimpse of the gorgeous detailed back.
3. Her low-cut jumpsuit
Every girl needs a statement piece in her closet. When Lorraine walks into a room, you’re going to know.
4. Her killer boots collection
One of the things I love about Lorraine is that she isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty, and do it in heels or boots. The chains give off major 80s biker vibes.
Her leather thigh high boots deserve to be on a pedestal.
5. Her black and white striped sweater
Everything about this iconic look is fierce. I love that she’s the kind of spy who sneaks in white even when she’s undercover.
