Whether they’re walking down the red carpet at a Hollywood awards show or flying across the world to shake the hand of the President or Prime Minister, the women we admire the most are the ones who can set the world on fire and leave us asking ourselves, “What are they wearing?” because they look so good as they run the world. As society and fashion trends change, these 10 power women never let us down when it comes to their career or their outfits. For this fall, these are the key women to look at for elegant, sophisticated, classy, or outrageous fashion ideas.
The first most fashionable power woman on my list always leads right to Michelle Obama. Being the 2nd first lady to ever grace the cover of Vogue Magazine in it’s March 2009 issue, Michelle Obama has lead the country as a first lady standing strong next to her husband, President Barack Obama. Setting examples of motherhood and leading a few social initiatives of her own, Michelle Obama has always looked the part of a woman who always seems to get it right. More recently, the royal name has been seen in a very fashionable light as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (Formerly Kate Middleton), has transformed into the most looked-to and admired fashion icon of the new decade. It was her famous wedding dress, a creation by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen that turned the newest royal into the uppermost icons in the fashion world. Third on the list is handed to a more edgy and odd person, none other then Lady Gaga. Yes, she is outrageous in her couture ensembles and many will certainly disagree with her as “fashionable.” However, she is brilliant because she has created an empire solely based off her music and wardrobe. Her looks are inspiring because of the artistic aspect, and if fashion is a form of art, then Lady Gaga is the Pablo Picasso. Fourth on the list is couldn’t help but include Jennifer Aniston. Being one of the most famous American actress, film director, and producer for as long as we can remember, Jen Aniston never lets us down with her continuous beauty and style.
Almost always making a statement and always topping the charts on best dressed lists, singer Rihanna never falls short of dressing brilliant and beautiful. Ravishing and confidant, Rihanna is the queen of dominating the music charts and looking good while doing it. My sixth pick goes to the up-and-coming Emma Watson. Putting her Harry Potter wizarding days behind her, this fashion forward female is about to take the world by storm as she landed on the cover of Vogue’s July 2011 issue. If you haven’t heard of my seventh pick, do a Google search as soon as possible. Appearing on the MTV Reality show The City, fashionista Olivia Palermo is the girl you see walking down the street and can’t help but stare at. She is known world wide as a fashion trendsetter (and even played the part on Sex and the City!). Sarah Jessica Parker also has an array of outfits that she has presented to the world over the years and continues to uphold her name in the fashion, business, and acting world. The final two have a new and fresh approach to their fashion, but always end up at the top of their game on the red carpet and on the big screen, Blake Lively and Charlize Theron have made a both made a positive name for themselves in fashion and are admired by many for their style.
So there you have it, the ten most fashionable women in our day and age. Some may seem a bit young to deserve the title, but fashion is all about looking forward and into the future.
