Holiday Gift Guide Part 2: For The Girl Whose Style Icon Is Aeon Flux

We all dream of kickin’ ass and takin’ names — whether it’s as Catwoman. Lara Croft. Aeon Flux. La Femme Nikita or Fox (Angelina Jolie ‘s character in the band-of-assassins flick, Wanted ). And, of course, part of these fantasies infiltrate our fashion and beauty sensibilities, as we gravitate towards all-back wardrobes, tons of sleek leather, thick chains, smokey eyes, and studded cuffs, belts, and bags.

If you’re shopping for a family member or friend with a dark, slightly goth, rocker-influenced, daring, and aggressive yet luxurious sense of style, take a look at some gift ideas that would top her very own “most wanted” list.

DANNIJO Tali Cuff, $345. Available at

When it comes to jewelry, an Aeon Flux type of gal will opt for something strong but slightly sinister — such as this tall, oxidized, silver-plated cuff from Dannijo (one of my absolute favorite jewelry lines), which is covered in Swarovski crystals in black, clear, rose and purple hues.

Dolce Vita Flash Bootie, $189.95. Visit

When stylish females get ready to rumble, they have to put on the proper footwear — which, apparently, involves black leather boots, preferably with platforms, spiked heels, or chain embellishments (think of the fight scenes in the film version of Charlie’s Angels ). These Dolce Vita booties feature thick, gold chains for an old-school hip-hop flavor that adds yet another bit of toughness to the design.

Anna Sheffield Edith Rope Link Ring, $736. Available at

Bad girls (or crime-fighting good girls) always stock up on knuckle rings, chains, and ropes — just in case any skirmishes arise. This Anna Sheffield ring has the movement of a real-life rope being twisted, turned, and made to move like a venomous snake ready to attack its prey.

Qi Cashmere Give Back Sweater, $370. Available at

No girl can wear black all the time (hey, even Angelina throws in some color from time to time). Add some whimsy to the wardrobe of the urban warrior in your life with this comfy cashmere and wool graphic sweater. It kind of reminds me of Jenny Humphrey ‘s style on Gossip Girl — edgy and downtown chic.

Zoya Matte Velvet Loredana Polish, $7. Visit

The Mrs. Smith in your life isn’t particularly keen on technicolor nails. When this gal gets a manicure, she keeps her nails short and opts for a dark, sobering polish, such as this steely gray, which has an impeccable matte finish.

Ali Ro Sequin Boyfriend Blazer, $325. Available at Big Drop stores. Visit for info.

Remember Alicia Keys’ assassin character in Smokin’ Aces . Georgia Sykes. Well, if there’s one fashion lesson we’ve learned from female assassins and action stars, it’s this: both your work clothes and your off-duty clothes, need to be edgy, figure-hugging, and glam. Pair Ali Ro ‘s sequin blazer with some liquid black leggings, tailored trousers or ruched black pants, and come-hither pumps, and you’ve got yourself a red carpet ready Angelina Jolie or Victoria Beckham look — and, in case you haven’t noticed, both ladies have a “killer” sense of style.

OTTE Fingerless Chain Gloves, $125. Visit

This lady approaches fashion like a Mission Impossible assignment could arise at any moment — and, in order to properly execute it, she’ll need to keep those fingers free. Fingerless gloves, then, are the way to go — besides, ever since the Michael Jackson “Bad” video (RIP to the King of Pop), they’ve been synonymous with coolness.

Suzi Roher Style #5465 Belt, $505. Available at

The “Bad” video comes to mind yet again as I regard this wide belt from Suzi Roher, which features: a strand of square, pyramid shaped, metal studs; a second strand of opaque stones and domed, pearl-like metal shapes;  a third strand of dog tag-shaped metallic plates with flowers etched on them; an a final strand of domed, pearly metal studs. How can you be hard-edged without the proper hardware?
