Let’s hear it for the boys! Celebs like Olivia Palermo and Alessandra Ambrosio are proof that when it comes to looking fab in a fitted suit jacket, guys don't get to have all the fun. These leading ladies remodelled classic suiting separates – think feminine details like head-to-toe sequin embellishments and edgy tailoring – to make menswear their own and define the new power suit.
Take your cues from designer Victoria Beckham, who doesn’t let a well-suited look go unnoticed. The stylish mom of four styled a mustard trench coat vest from her eponymous label over a black jumpsuit. She kept the rest of her ensemble sleek and streamlined with classic black low-heeled sandals.
Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio took menswear-inspired dressing up a notch. The Victoria’s Secret Angel showed off her legs in black thigh-high Gianvito Rossi boots paired with a black mini skirt and structured Dsquared2 blazer.
Meanwhile, rock star Janelle Monáe showed her style stripes in a sequin-embellished black-and-white Sass & Bide jacket-trousers combo. Her flawless red lip was the only pop of colour needed for this mod-inspired look.
Lending their feminine twist to the menswear trend on the red carpet this week were Rebecca Hall (in Valentino), Gemma Arterton (in Rossella Jardini), Olivia Palermo (in a chic robe) and Fan Bingbing (in Alexis Mabille). And leave it to Canadian model Winnie Harlow to rock a Yohji Yamamoto suit with Y-3 sneakers – the ultimate cool girl’s power suit.
