10 of the most Influential Fashionable Women in the World – Pt. 2

Who are some of the world’s most influential women? They are the smartest and toughest female business leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, scientists, philanthropists and CEOs making their mark in the world today. They’re the women others idolize and they’re the ones who can voice their opinions on a global platform and actually make a difference with their words. These women today are the winners of the entire feminism argument in every house and workplace. Misandry in the name of feminism isn’t their style either.

With all that they have going on for themselves, you’d think they would be aloof with their fashion sense? That’s a strong no! From being power dressed to being style icons, they leave a mark with more than just their words everywhere they go. Here’s our list of favorites continued from the previous post.

 

#6: Kate Middleton

The Duchess of Cambridge style is the perfect blend of high street style and couture. She’s the perfect role model for tweens that translate fashion to having a new outfit for every occasion. Kate effortlessly repeats basic staples and more several times. She’s known to shop at affordable stores, sales and wear local brands when she travels.

Being exposed to bullying at an early age, she stood up against it and switched schools. As an act towards the same, she asked her wedding guests to donate to an anti-bullying charity instead of spending on gifts for the couple.

#7: Amal Clooney

Amal Clooney’s impeccable sense of fashion came into the limelight after her wedding to actor George Clooney. She made public appearances in dresses with hemlines above the knees and flowy fabrics with stunning cuts. Amal Clooney accessorizes like a dream! Her wide hats and large sunglasses have always been on point.

Being married to actor George Clooney is obviously not how we identify her. Amal is a lawyer, an activist, an author and a barrister who specializes in international law and human rights. She happens to have catered to high profile cases like recently representing Julian Assange, former PM of Ukraine for instance.

#8: Anna Wintour

The editor in chief for American Vogue is the strongest influence over the fashion world for obvious reasons.

With the freedom to receive and wear any outfit from any leading designer around the world, Anna Wintour actually sticks to her personal style. Black, a fashionista’s go-to colour is disliked by her. She’s more for high couture suits in bright colours with chunky necklaces. Anna’s never seen without her Manolo Blahnik heels and her sunglasses and like the Duchess of Cambridge, does not hesitate to repeat her outfits.

#9: Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw

The chairman and managing director of Biocon Limited and also the chairperson of IIM-Bangalore is India’s richest self-made woman. The founder of Biocon, Asia’s largest insulin producer was awarded the Chevalier de l’Ordre National de la Légion d’Honneur, France’s highest civilian honor, for her outstanding contribution to bioscience.

Kiran’s style is more formal, but her colours are always bright. She uses large statement neck pieces to complete her ensemble, and like Indra Nooyi she too is fond of scarves.

#10: Queen Rania of Jordan

Rania Al-Abdullah became the queen consort of Jordan in 1993. Since her marriage, she has used her position towards advocating for diverse sectors of society like education, health, community empowerment, youth, cross-cultural dialogue, and micro-finance.

Queen Rania’s wardrobe is packed with show-stopping gowns and trend setting outfits. Her style has struck the perfect balance between royal elegance and upmarket fashion. This style star of the Middle-East was a dressing inspiration through Ramzan, 2016.

To finish, we’re just going to leave you here with one of our favourite Anna Wintour quotes- “The notion that a contemporary woman must look mannish in order to be taken seriously as a seeker of power is frankly dismaying.”
