Fashion on Film: Female Convict #701: Scorpion

I don't think that anyone has ever looked as chic and badass as Meiko Kaji did in the Female Convict #701: Scorpion movies. Meiko is basically the Japanese equivalent of Pam Grier; she starred in a bunch of exploitation flicks during the seventies. As the title suggests, the Scorpion movies definitely fall into the women in prison category. She also looks pretty fly in Lady Snowblood which served as the inspiration for Lucy Liu's character in Kill Bill Vol. 1. I may have to do a follow up post about Meiko, this girl is incredible.
