Fictional female characters who.. err.. on the dark side often have three things in common: a killer wardrobe, a dramatic beauty look, and an arsenal of memorable one-liners that help to ensure the spotlight remains firmly on them. 

From the comic book bad girls, like Hela in Thor: Ragnarok to pretty girl high school bullies like Regina George in Mean Girls, here are some of our favourite female villains that we can’t help but scream ‘’YASSS QUEEN WE STAN’’ 

1. Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada 

Was there ever a stare so withering as the one Miranda Priestly directed at her assistant Andy Sachs when she dared to roll her eyes at belts? As Anne Hathaway’s character put it: “I thought the flesh was going to melt off her face!” The ultimate horrible boss, Meryl excelled herself as the ice queen editrix whose acerbic put-downs were as sharp as her heels.
