Be the most eye-catching and sexy at the party in this sparkling Vanessa Kensington costume!

Vanessa Kensington is the wife of Austin Powers across Austin Power’s films.

She is the perfect antithesis of Austin Powers. Austin is expressive, careless, easy-going, and clumsy, but Vanessa is calculated, stoic and sexy.

Across her two appearances in the Austin Powers franchise, she isn’t as important as him. Still, she is a strong deuteragonist to Austin in the first film.

You’ll Need:

  1. Silver Dress
  2. Silver Boots
  3. Beehive Wig
  4. Toy Gun

About Vanessa Kensington

Vanessa is a somewhat basic character in the Austin Powers movies but still has a great purpose as the love interest for our protagonist.

She acts as someone that is a goal for Austin to gain approval of and forces him to develop parts of his character if he wants to be with her. She is also threatening in her own right—trained by the British intelligence agency.

However, in the second movie, she is killed off. Probably to make way for more love interests for Austin and not pin him down to a single status quo.

There is no denying that Vanessa did remain a very iconic character throughout the 90s.
