The Top 7 Most Influential Celebrity Power Dressers
To sum it up, power dressing is dressing like you’ve got your sh*t together, even if you don’t. We found seven celebrities who have definitely mastered the look and have their sh*t together, too . A glance at their on-point looks and you can’t help but notice the major boss-lady vibes they’re exuding. Some on our list are veterans of the game and some novices, but they’re all equally killing it. The best part? Not only are these women major influencers in the style department, their lives are aspirational to say the least.
Scroll down to see our countdown of the most influential celebrity power-dressers in all their glory, and to shop an assortment of our favourite blazers, a key piece in any power look.
Gone are Sienna Miller’s bohemian babe days. The actress’s cool, grown-up new look comes at a time of career reinvention and new motherhood. Even her wavy bob screams “power.” Everything is coming together for Miller, and it shows.
Jessica Alba, a busy mum, actress, and CEO, is an expert at melding her feminine sensibilities with that of a stylish professional. A lover of colour and print, she combines silky trousers and fitted blazers on the regular, creating a signature power-dressing look for herself.
Fact: Nobody commands a stage, or room for that matter, like J.Lo. Her powerful looks run the gamut from sexy to #bosslady and everything in between. Her unwavering confidence says it all.
Charlize Theron has been a major player in the power-dressing game for perhaps her entire career. A fan of minimalistic shapes and neutral hues, the actress often opts for strong looks make a statement—whether she’s on the red carpet or off.
One of our favourite celebs for date-night and airport-dressing inspiration, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is also a stellar power dresser (even on dates and at the airport!). The supermodel and actress proves that it’s possible to dress like a cool girl and a powerful woman at the same time.
Coming in a close second, Amal Clooney has been winning our hearts as of late. The It woman (you just can’t refer to her as girl) has class and accessible style for days. Her night-out and workday outfits are always appropriate and sleek, but still have a touch of fun.
Often donning pieces from her own line, Victoria Beckham is a veteran of the power dressing game at this point. In fact, some might argue that she helped to create it (ahem, Posh Spice). A big aspect of power dressing is wearing the hues and styles that help you to exude confidence, i.e. a vibrant red hue, a structured satchel, or a perfect-fitting blazer. Beckham often seamlessly incorporates these elements into her looks. No matter where she’s headed, she looks like she could conduct an important business meeting at any given moment—the ultimate goal of a power dresser in our opinion.
