Ok, is it’s been forever since The Fifth Element came out in 1997(gasp), but it’s still a great movie! And of course it’s got so many great hairstyles, gotta give a hand to the costume/makeup/hairstylists for the movie for doing a fabulous job! Just as an example look at the scene where the Diva (Maiwenn Le Besco) sings the techno-opera and really look around at the audience in the background, there’s more awesome hairstyles just in that scene than in most entire movies.
Obviously the hairstyle that everyone remembers from The Fifth Element is Leeloo’s (Milla Jovovich) hair. The awesome bright orange with blond roots color… the orange and white color scheme that runs throughout the movie makes me think someone was a UT or Syracuse fan. lol. Back to the hair… it seems like for most of the movie that it had an almost dreaded look like is was twisted in clumps with some wax. I like it, gave it more of a hardcore look than just leaving it natural. The short bangs gave her a more cute feel. Put it all together, and I think it pulled off her look and feel for the character of Leeloo quite nicely.
On to some photos:
Other characters in The Fifth Element:
Chris Tucker’s character Ruby Rhod is an awesome flamboyant talk show radio host and his hair and clothing are just as loud as he is. Chris plays the character very well… cant go wrong with a one piece, fuzzy, leopard print jump suit! hahah. Check out other mens hairstyles.
I have to mention the blue Diva (Plavalaguna – character name).. even though she doesn’t really have hair, I think it’s close enough to an alien ‘hairstyle’ to fit in this post. 🙂
…and if not for the costume style then she should be noted for her amazing performance in the movie. The actual singing was done by Albanian soprano Inva Mula-Tchako… simply awesome.
As mentioned above the audience for the Diva’s performance also has amazing hairstyles throughout.. cool colors and styles. Here are a couple of them, but I’ll let you find the pink hair styles yourself.
The evil of the movie – Zorg – played be Gary Oldman has a unique style of his own for the movie…
If you’re into tattoos this is a real cool look… the shaved head also seems to me a theme throughout the movie, especially for women.
…Lastly, who can forget the ridiculous, platinum blond, ‘flight’ attendants with their matching blue uniforms and crazy blond bob cuts.
