Week’s Best Celebrity Style: Janelle Monae, Alessandra Ambrosio, Victoria Beckham and more

By Ava Baccari

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.
