As you may or may not remember, last year illustrator David Murray dropped a sartorial and fairly satirical series of images, each one of a different movie villain/horror movie character wearing some of the hottest recent runway looks. Hello my two favourite worlds colliding!
Whilst smirking to myself at the sight of Boba Fett in Astrid Andersen, Stephen King's Pennywise in Moschino (which will have me never look at Ronald McDonald in the same way again) and Darth Maul in a suitably coordinated Givenchy ensemble, some of my favourite female villains were noticeably absent. Thankfully, Murray has returned this year with a series dedicated entirely to my favourite type of on-screen persona - the female super-villain - decked out in Spring/Summer 16's finest looks.
Clearly a DC fan, Murray has depicted Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman in Christopher Kane, Uma Thurman's Poison Ivy in Dries Van Noten alongside Margot Robbie's more recent depiction of Harley Quinn in Haider Ackerman with a small nod to one of my favourite movie series - Kill Bill. (Shout out to Elle Driver wearing Vetements!).
Check out some of my favourites below, as well my favourite illustrations from last year's line-up. And David, if you're reading this, here's a couple special requests from me - Glenn Close's Cruella DeVil, Vivica A Fox's Vernita Green and Kathy Bates's Annie Wilkes - eternal gratitude to follow.
