A celebrity in today’s modern day society is considered first among equals. It refers to that individual who has successfully climbed the societal ladder that most of us find ourselves in.

When one makes a movie a lot of research goes into the costume of the movie characters. Jackets have long been among the favorite apparels of men’s costumes and if the designers get it right then it only magnifies the star’s appeal on the movie.

For example Arnold’s character in both Terminator 1 and Terminator 2 couldn’t be considered complete without his trade mark Leather jackets and black sun glasses.

This result in those apparels having a fan following of their own, another very famous leather jacket is the one worn by Uma Thurman in the Kill Bill series. This bright yellow jacket blended fashion and style as well as being a fashion statement to remember martial art legend Bruce lee.
