Before coming in contact with the fridge-haunting demon Zuul, Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver) was a successful cellist with a friendly demeanor and a cute paranormal investigator on a string. But her fashion sense was a bit banal.

The clunky coats, oversized tops, and lackluster leggings did nothing for Weaver's statuesque figure. She is a goddess and deserves to dress like one!
