Who doesn’t love television? I love staring at the idiot box after a particularly long day and watching some gripping or mindless shows (depending on how tired I am). However, since my world is very focused on fashion, I’m making a list of some of the most stylish women characters on television in recent times…
Sky high stilettos, razor sharp tailoring and cinched in waists – not to forget that signature bob. Yes, Wilhelmina form Ugly Betty essayed the role of editrix of a fashion magazine to hilt.
Hands up if you loved Gossip Girl, I l got my weekly dose of sartorial gratification from this show – Blair Waldorf played by Leighton Meester played the typical Queen Bee with a tiara (read hair band) to boot. From tartan and tweed skirts, prim blouses and designer handbags, not to forget the beautiful ball gowns from the likes of Jason Wu and Oscar de la Renta. Blair epitomized classic dressing with an IT girl twist.
Serena Van der Woodsen from gossip girl:
Another character from the Gossip Girl series, Serena Van der Woodsen epitomized boho-chic. Layered easy, breezy pieces from maxis, tank tops piled with statement necklaces and not to forget, the thigh-grazing dresses that showed off Blake Lively’s shapely pins.
Sure, Michelle Obama’s style is something we all love but if you want to really check out the power dressing, then is it has to be Claire Underwood from House of Cards. Shirts paired with pencil skirts and sheath dresses – the look is quite utilitarian yet packs a punch.
Oh Sex and the City! If there was ever a character that could be a style icon, it would be her. Essayed by Sarah Jessica Parker who eventually became one in her own right, Carrie was not afraid to take risks with her clothes. From print clash, wearing vintage mixed with couture and faux baubles, there was always something something new on screen.
Pencil dresses and ball gowns – that’s what the look is for the Queen Bee of the Hamptons. Victoria Grayson’s wardrobe wields power.
That perfectly coiffed hair, the red lips, not to mention the a-line dresses. Betty Draper showed us sartorial elegance.
Which one is your favourite?
