* ''ComicBook/GoldDigger'': Britanny Elin Diggers is a mall rat supreme (which is ironic, being a CatGirl) and a RunningGag throughout the series is her (and her sisters) running ''multi-million dollar'' credit cards ''completely dry'' and having to perform her adventures (at least partially) to pay the banks. Of all three sisters she's the one that mostly wastes money on clothes (also at least partially justified because being an ActionGirl ClothingDamage happens to her ''very'' often).

* Malveria from ''Literature/LonelyWerewolfGirl'' books. Her species has Fashionista as its Hat. She has several dragonskin outfits made from the dragons she has personally slain, and although she acts like a high-class ditz most of the time, she occasionally likes to remind everyone she earned the right to do so by personally wiping her enemies from existence in combat.

* Coco Adel of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' is a walking wardrobe of awesome who looks like she belongs on a Parisian catwalk, and she also compliments the outfits of other characters. Nevertheless, she's an ActionGirl who effortlessly mows down entire ranks of Grimm with a [[{{BFG}} huge]] [[GatlingGood gatling gun]] which folds out of her tiny handbag.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has Rarity, a fashion designer who fights many mosnter and villains with her friends, included teen dragons who would hurt her little [[MamaBear Spikey-Wikey.]] One particular moment of note is the fighting montage in the season 2 finale episode. Of all of the Mane Six who were fighting the Changelings, Rarity was the only one visibly taking some satisfaction out of punching one in the jaw. Rarity apparently knows some form of martial arts, as she often assumes a vague stance when about to physically fight. It's most noticeable when she's threatening teenage dragons that are about to hurt Spike:
-->"Fighting's not my thing, I'm more into fashion; BUT I'll RIP YOU TO PIECES IF YOU TOUCH ONE SCALE ON HIS CUTE LITTLE HEAD!!"

** [[https://derpibooru.org/129808 Just a few of her finer moments]].
** More recently, there was a creature traveling through everyone's dreams and turning objects into {{Mooks}} to fight for it. Rarity didn't hesitate to blast away with magical {{Death Ray}}s.

The Action Fashionista is some type of {{Badass}} partly characterized by the vastness of their wardrobe. While they may have a standardized costume or uniform, they almost never seem to wear it to its strictest definition. The vast majority of their screentime features them with different articles of clothing, or major alterations of the same outfit. (For example, what was a blouse in one scene has become chainmail in a later scene, a [[PrettyInMink mink coat]] in another, and a {{pink| means feminine}}-and-white jacket in another.

This trope is reserved for characters who prefer a varied and unique wardrobe. It is not for plot-related costume changes (such as an EvilCostumeSwitch, FrillyUpgrade or FanservicePack). The character must also be an active {{Badass}} or Adventurer.

* Kanaya of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' is one of the few [[AllTrollsAreDifferent trolls]] who is in any way interested in fashion, and as a result she can be seen wearing various other outfits than the default black-shirt-with-sign a lot more than the other trolls. She is also arguably one of the more {{Badass}}, and her trademark weapon is a tube of lipstick that transforms into a ''[[ChainsawGood chainsaw]]''.

* Sakura from ''Manga/CardCaptorSakura'' though enforced on her by others. Her best friend Tomoyo is explicitly stated to make Sakura a new costume for ''every single clow card incident'', (of which there are ''fifty two'' clow cards, though a few were caught in the same chapter/episode). She herself doesn't particularly care for the outfits, except for the times when she had to fight in her school uniform, but she does it to keep Tomoyo and her [[WeaselMascot mentor animal]] Kero-chan happy.

* Founding [[Comicbook/TheAvengers Avenger]] and ''ComicBook/AntMan'' co-star Janet Van Dyne (aka TheWasp) constantly makes alterations to her costume. Justified in-universe, as Wasp actually ''is'' a fashionista.
** Started as more of a FauxActionGirl with a side of IBrokeANail, but when she developed into a genuine ActionGirl, she kept the good taste.

* [[SharpDressedMan Robert Garcia]] (pictured) and [[MagicalGirl Athena Asamiya]] from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' series (originally from ''VideoGame/ArtOfFighting'' and ''VideoGame/PsychoSoldier'', respectively), as both change their outfits with nearly every installment. Athena even goes so far as to invoke this trope as one of her [[LimitBreak HDMs]], which has her magically change into each of her outfits along with each hit[[note]]At least one game even had this as her Intro, where she would change through each one of her previous costumes before ending in her new one[[/note]].
