Marla Singer, the character of the movie Fight Club, is definitely one my favourite style icon. Not only that Helena Bonham Carter is perfect in the role and very sexy, but she's the true rebel of the movie. She's a real punk, but with no political connotations. She's a life-warrior and a dreamer.
Listen to her speakin' about vintage :
Here's the full dialog (the most interesting part is missing in the video):
Marla: I got this dress at a thrift store for $1.
Jack: It was worth every penny.
Marla: It’s a bridesmaid’s dress. Someone loved it intensely for one day. Then tossed it, like a Christmas tree. So special. Then bam! It’s on the side of the road. Tinsel still clinging to it. Like a sex crime victim. Underwear inside out. Bound with electrical tape.
Jack: Well then, it suits you
