Terrifying Teenage Girls

1. Jennifer Check in Jennifer’s Body (2009)

It’s pretty obvious we have a thing for bad girls here at Nasty Gal, but since it’s still Halloween, we thought we’d take it one step further—with teenagers that truly terrify us. Between Regina George’s backstabbing, Kathryn Merteuil’s mind games and Jennifer Check’s thirst for blood, we rounded up the top ten ladies in film who have seriously scared the crap out of us.

(We Heart It)

Halloween has this weird way of changing meanings as we grow up. At first, it’s a day for swift candy acquisition and consumption. By 15, it turns into skimpy cat costumes and schoolgirl skirts that ride higher than most thongs. At 18, I’ve come to a crossroads: am I still a part of the “I’m a mouse, duh” house party club, or is there something else I should be doing? Something more authentic? In the name of adventure (and boredom), my friends and I scoured Georgetown University for the creepiest spirit-channeling activities to do on the day of the devil. Luckily, our school has two graveyards, a (supposedly) haunted observatory, and some statues that scare me shitless. Here’s what we did—and what you can do—to freak yourself out on old Hallows’ Eve.

1. Ouija Your Life Away

Okay, so maybe Ouija boards are sold at Toys”R”Us, but there are YouTube videos and some super detailed accounts of supernatural experiences by way of Ouija. When I told my friends about my plans to take out my Ouija board this Halloween, one of them refused to be in the same room as me. Personally, I’ve never been possessed during a Ouija game, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

There’s no doubt that ’90s trends have returned in full force, but when we look back on the oh-so-iconic decade, we can thank one particular trio of ladies for starting most of ’em: TLC. Don’t believe us? Well, in lieu of tonight’s CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story biopic on VH1, we rounded up some of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas’ best looks to show how seriously relevant their style still is today.

Tupac’s Style Lives On

1047201

For any of you that don’t know, today is the anniversary of Tupac’s death. Seventeen years ago today, not only did the rap community lose a serious influencer, but a true visionary style wise. Of course, when you wear a beanie or overalls today you probably aren’t trying to channel Tupac (if you are, you rock), but that doesn’t detract from how freakin’ relevant his style is today. On this Friday the 13th, this Dazed & Confused article explains exactly why I love Tupac, and so should you. Check out his uncanny style influence, and some of his best songs, below. -Marissa
