VIDEO: A Brief History of Cinema's Leather-Bound Lady Hackers

While the smothering contraption worn by Daniel Craig in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo most definitely bear noting, a few of us are a little more preoccupied with how Rooney Mara's character, Lisbeth Salander, falls in line with the fashions of cinema's best-known female computer hackers. Hint: Pretty well!

From the team that condensed all of Alicia Silverstone's Clueless outfits to one mind-melting minute, find below 60 seconds chronicling the leather-leaning sartorial tendencies of the ladies in Hackers, The Matrix, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and of course this week's Dragon Tattoo. There are guys in here, too (Tom Cruise = not so leathery), but yawn. I won't give away its ending, except to say that young Julia Stiles had a ruthless style all her own that makes Salander look utterly docile by comparison. Enjoy!
