In over five years, Fortnite has gifted fans with hundreds of female skins. These range from characters who first made a name for themselves in other video game series, while others are original creations that have affected how the battle royale’s lore has played out. With so many girl skins to pick from, the very best have become known for their unique designs or their handful of diverse skin styles. This guide will breakdown the greatest girl skins in Fortnite ever, organized in alphabetical order.
What are the best girl skins in Fortnite?
It is rare for PlayStation exclusives to crossover with Fortnite, and that fact alone has made players incredibly grateful for Horizon Zero Dawn’s Aloy. The protagonist’s skin features the same tribal clothing she sported in the original title. However, one of the most underrated details is her character model, as she has been given a cartoon design akin to Fortnite’s own cast of characters. The Aloy skin can be purchased through the Item Shop, though she has not been in rotation since March 3, 2022.
Since her debut in Season 8, Aura has gathered a cult following for rocking golden accessories and bags of coins around her hips. More importantly, the skin has been treated to new styles during every chapter thus far. This makes the 800 V-Buck cosmetic well worth the purchase, especially considering these styles come entirely free to skin owners. Aura comes to the Item Shop about once every month.
Despite being one of the best female skins to date, Black Widow is also considered one of the rarest players can own. That is because this all-black variant of the Marvel character has been away from the Item Shop for more than 1,300 days, and there is no telling when she will return. If that day ever comes, you can obtain Black Widow and her Widow’s Pack Back Bling for a total of 1,500 V-Bucks
Dr. Slone is a major villain in Fortnite lore, though she is still loved for her very own cosmetic. Those who progressed through the Season 2 Chapter 7 Battle Pass could not only obtain her skin but also an assortment of styles. This includes three different Super Level Styles, an armored Battlesuit Slone style, and one that even gives her a slick pair of shades. For now, the skin can no longer be unlocked, though fans are definitely hoping a new variant of Dr. Slone comes soon.
DC’s Harley Quinn was actually one of the first crossover skins the battle royale had ever earned, and it still ranks amongst the best. The skin gives owners the opportunity to have a Harley that resembles her design from the comics, or they could complete challenges to unlock a style that appears like her Birds of Prey film version. Harley Quinn typically appears in Item Shop rotations during the summer, costing buyers a light 1,500 V-Bucks.

The Gaming Legends series is jam-packed with notable protagonists from various gaming franchises, but there is none more unique than Lara Croft. Her skin lets owners either sport her more modern design or even a pixelated version that is reminiscent of her look in Tomb Raider titles on the original PlayStation. That said, she is an incredibly hard skin to get ahold of, appearing only in the Chapter 2 Season 6 Battle Pass.
Dawning her iconic pink armor and anime design, Ochaco Urarka came to Fortnite with a skin of her own during the My Hero Academia crossover event in December of last year. Fans of the show were even shocked to find she came packaged with a free Uravity Booster Back Bling. Although her skin has not been available in recent months, Ochaco Urarka is expected to be back in the Item Shop later in 2023 for 1,500 V-Bucks.
Being one of the newest skins on our list, Paradigm (Reality-659) reimagines the longtime Fortnite character with actress Brie Larson underneath her helmet. However, those wanting to sport Paradigm’s original look and have a helmet still have the option to do so, especially as it has over six helmet styles to choose from. While an amazing addition to the battle royale, the skin could only be obtained through the Chapter 3 Season 4 Battle Pass.

The Cube Queen
Fortnite antagonists have always made for excellent skins for fans to use, and The Cube Queen is certainly no exception. The Chapter 2 villain dawns a light pink suit that displays s a strange glow, spooky enough to scare any opponent that comes near her. Better yet, the skin has two different styles that either turn the suit all-black or a sickly green color. Unfortunately, The Cube Queen was exclusively tied to the Chapter 2 Season 8 Battle Pass.
Veteran Fortnite players know that the most popular Item Shop bundle is arguably the Cyber Infiltration Pack. This 2,200 V-Buck offering lends players three female anime skins, including the beloved Yuki. Although she is the shortest of the bunch, Yuki has received the most fanfare for wearing an adorable white jacket and a set of old school wired headphones. Players desiring to switch her appearance can even apply a hoodless style that reveals her long blue hair. For now, it is unclear when this bundle will reappear, though it tends to be in the Item Shop at the start of most seasons.
