Leeloo (The Fifth Element)

Milla Jovovitch in Jean-Paul Gaultier fashion

For the costumes of this film, Luc Besson called upon Jean-Paul Gaultier, we find forms, colors and materials a little strange which are, among others, the visual trademark of this film. On this figurine Leeloo is represented with the clothes that Korben gives her after having taken her in when she fell in his cab. She wears a tight yellow pants with black boots and funny black straps. With that, she wears a white t-shirt revealing her belly but the most notable element is this kind of orange plastic harness with holes. At the level of the head, her face is very simple but we recognize of course her famous red hair and her small short fringe. Finally, she holds in her hand her multipass”, a kind of identity card which is given to her when she has to pretend to be Korben’s wife.


An ancient creature adapted to the modern world
