If you need Y2K outfits to add to your moodboard, look no further than Gisele Bündchen’s fiercest—not to mention most villainous—movie role. The Brazilian supermodel made her acting debut in 2004’s Taxi, where she starred as Vanessa, the well-clad leader of a babelicious group of bank robbers. In the film, a taxi driver Belle (Queen Latifah) teams up with a goofy police detective Andy (Jimmy Fallon) to track down the devious thieves. There’s fast-paced chase scenes, loads of slapstick humor—but more importantly, there’s plenty of delicious fashion-forward Y2K looks from Bündchen.
When we first meet the stylish Vanessa in the film (her entry is set to Tone Loc’s “Wild Things”), she emerges from the airport in a white skirt suit that’s zippered and super mini, finished off with thigh-high boots, a chain belt, and shield shades. Her posse of fellow bad girls are wearing trendy outfits that are equally 2000s: leopard jackets, bodycon dresses, and Louis Vuitton monogrammed duffle bags. “Don’t you scratch them, you idiot,” Vanessa snarls as her limo driver packs their expensive bags in their trunk.
