Who Wears A Formal Suit Well?
Women are known for their liking of lightweight and flowing fabrics. But there have been many women throughout history who have borrowed from menswear and sported formal suits gracefully. These women come from various backgrounds and professions, but people usually remember suited ladies from the world of politics and entertainment.
The undisputed queen of pop music, Madonna, has shown her love for men’s formal suits during various stages of her long and illustrious career. She was seen in formal suits in her early music videos like Vogue and Express Yourself. Lately, she appeared wearing a formal suit during Grammy Award function.
It is hard to believe that someone as sexy as Beyoncé, who is known for her glamorous outfits, can look so elegant in formal men’s suits. But this singer has proved her detractors wrong by mesmerising her audiences in formal suits, albeit in bright colours at times.
Rihanna is the best-known name from the world of entertainment when it comes to formal suits. She has been seen wearing them on numerous occasions and carries suits off in a very graceful manner. She has proved that it is possible to combine puffy sleeves with menswear style and still look feminine and sexy.
Salma Hayek is another beautiful actress who is known for her full, curvy figure and she has looked majestic and attractive in formal men’s suits on numerous occasions. Her images wearing a Yves Saint Laurent suit during a fashion show in Paris can be seen on the net as a proof of how good she looks in formal attire.
Katherine Hepburn was one of the earliest of Hollywood actresses to wear men’s formal suits. During the forties, when it was socially unacceptable for women to wear menswear, Katherine successfully broke this tradition when she adopted slacks and ignored skirts. Young kids may not recognise her name, but Hepburn was one of the top Hollywood actresses of her time, and it goes to her credit to popularise formal suits among women.
Former First Lady and Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton comes straight to mind when thinking of ladies sporting formal suits.
