Sometimes sexy isn't about showing off your skin but about showing off how strong you are inside and out. Deck yourself out in a pair of tight jeans, a tucked-in chambray button-down, a red bandanna and a killer-diller '40s updo to become one of the most iconic women of wartime history: Rosie the Riveter.
