Musette's Movie Magic: The Misfits

Neurotic, erratic, troubled or lost, Musette's Misfits possess an instability that makes them only more beautiful. Take the good clothing choices, leave the emotional baggage behind and embody your most beloved basket-cases.

Natalie Portman as Jack's ex-girlfriend in The Darjeeling Limited 2007
She sure knew how to shake things up at Hotel Chevalier, including the heart and mind of Jason Schwartzman's Jack. Who can blame him either - one look at Natalie in that wool coat and black boots sent us into a tail spin as well.

Ally Sheedy as Alison in The Breakfast Club 1985
She's as quiet as a mouse and about as tormented as they come but we love Alison all the same. Sheedy suited a parka and lots of layers so well that we couldn't help but begrudge Molly Ringwald for making over our innocent outcast.

Scarlett Johansson as Nola Rice in Matchpoint 2005
She was a man eater of the most dangerous variety and in the end dear Nola pays the ultimate price. Maybe it was that rain-soaked shirt she seduced Chris in or her sexy cocktail dresses, but something about Ms. Rice's twisted love triangle and complicated life is really, very appealing.

Winona Ryder as Veronica in Heathers 1988
Who wouldn't choose Christian Slater over a place in the high school in-crowd? J.D. goes ga-ga over Veronica's bad girl ways while her preppy ensembles leave us to do nothing but wish that we too had a group of rivals all by the name of Heather.
