What makes a main character interesting is the unpredictable nature of their motivations. They know how to get what they want by any means necessary even if it means breaking a few rules along the way. A character without a well-defined style isn’t a character at all. The best characters have immediately identifiable wardrobes that inspire legions of followers all over the globe.
These are the 5 best-dressed Rogues of Cinematic Style. Do not do as they do… but shamelessly copy everything about their style.
