This week I took a look at 4 current power couples from all strains of culture. These individuals stand alone with emphasis but together, these couples give the stylish insight on dynamic duos. Here’s a break down on suits, suggestions, and iconic women.
George Clooney (Actor) & Amal Alamuddin (Human Rights Lawyer)
George Clooney has always been known for his leading roles and good looks but when it comes to his style he usually lets his leading lady steal the stage. Amal Alamuddin, who has established her career in The International Criminal Court, the International Court of Justice and the European Court of Human Rights. Still, even in the Clooney’s world of Hollywood, Amal Alamuddin steals the show with her
sleek glamour and playful details.
HIS: It’s easy to describe George Clooney’s style as All-American Movie Star. He remains consistently dominates the Hollywood classic tuxedo on the red carpet. But a noticeable favorite of his is an all black look; black jacket, black dress shirt, and a black tie. Clooney typically likes a straight cut suit with moderate tailoring to the waist so he can appear at an event buttoned or unbuttoned while still looking well put together and compliments his leading lady to perfection.
HERS: Amal Alamuddin uses her small frame and long legs to create glamorously sleek get-ups seen in silky blacks and creamy whites. But Amal knows a thing or two about drawing playful and sexy attention a part from her Hollywood Veteran husband while wearing fun colors such as pinks, crimson reds, sky blues, and even kelly greens. These colors compliment beautifully with her olive skin tone, luscious hair, and well picked dangle earrings. She continues to provoke just the right enough attention and chic fits to last a night out in the spotlight.
Michelle (1st Lady, Philanthropist) & Barack Obama ( 44th United States President)
The Obama’s presidency may be coming to an end but they have made their mark on American history in various manners. Although presidency and the 1st lady are held to high standards when it comes to dressing appropriately, the Obama’s never lacked style and impeccable fittings throughout. They truly complete their stature whether hand in hand at a press conference or separately traveling cross-country.
HIS: Our current President of the United States, Barack Obama not only knows how to deliver a speech but he also knows how to wear suit. He appears to have his suits tailored to his slim figure and furnishings remain patriotic with red, white, and blue shirt and tie combinations. We see him almost always wearing a two-button classic lapel jacket but some of his best moments are in navy suits. Three of his accessories that always remain the same with Barack are his American Flag pin and black dress shoes.
HERS: Michelle Obama has been known for her style since the Obama campaign in 2009. Since then, she has put American designer Jason Wu on the global map by wearing his dress designs at both inaugural balls in 2009 and 2013. Michelle Obama has been an active philanthropists and education initiator in style. This being said, Michelle Obama is not afraid of a challenge let alone color, nor prints while still appearing elegant. Michelle stays modest and compliments her body with many sheath dresses and high waisted silhouettes. She draws in her waist to emphasize her strong and curvy figure that is always flattered and accentuated. Oh and don’t forget her classic kitten heel.
…but don’t worry, there’s more↓
Barry Diller (Media Executive) & Diane von Furstenberg (Fashion Designer)
While this couple has a joint network of over 4 billion dollars. The individuals have become the heads of style and entertainment. While Barry Diller came from an L.A college dropout to serving entertainment history working with ABC, FOX, and Paramount Entertainment. He oversaw shows like “Cheers” and “The Simpsons” along with a handful of online companies. His wife Diane Von Furstenberg has been noted by NewsWeek to being “The Most Remarkable Woman Since Coco Chanel”. With her consistent grasp on femininity, culture, charity, and self love it’s hard to disagree. Read below on how this power couple work the New York streets.
HIS: Barry Diller has an old fashioned spin to his suitings. I have repeatedly seen him standing in dominate pin-stripes and wondrous neutral combinations. But, this man does not fade behind his wife extravagance. He always seems to effortlessly coordinate with whether his wife. He may keep his suit casual and mellow while his wife looks vacationed or they together ooze fabulous one of a kind looks and artistic flares in New York City. You can’t put an age on style whether you’re a man on woman. This couple is living proof of staying lively and fashionable.
HERS: Since 1974 DVF has put the wrap dress on the milestone map of women’s fashion. This silhouette flattering all shapes and sizes. She’s always been a city girl from her life spent in Italy, France, and currently New York her eye for textiles and atmosphere translate her vibrant ensembles and sophisticated prints. Diane Von Furstenberg has always believed in celebrating femininity and that remains relative to her on and off red carpet wardrobe. She is never a detail out of place from her jewelry to her clutch.
Beyonce (R&B/Pop Artist) & JayZ (Hip Hop/Rap Artist/Producer)
Just like the couples above, both woman and man stand powerfully together and a part. Which is what makes them a power couple in the first place, right? Beyonce & JayZ have been together supposedly since 2006. Albums, fashion lines, epic music videos, and a child later this couple remains a completely on top of their careers with creative concepts and personal style.
HIS: JayZ has always remained loyal to his hip hop and street style way of dressing. Some of his remarked looks are designer denim, simple culture bearing tees, trendy jacket, flat bill hat, and sneakers. We may see him on the red carpet looking dapper wearing a peaked lapel suit jacket, sometimes stunning in all white. But, Mr. Jay-Z stays true to his fashion roots and occasionally accompanies his suit with all black luxury sneakers.
HERS: Beyonce continues to be an ever-changing medley of styles. She knows how to dominate a couture piece one evening and the next day seen strutting in destroyed denim and jersey while wearing 6 inch heels. She has recently drawn inspiration from historical African American trends such as military berets and all leather varieties as an ode to the 1960’s . We even see her throwing back her early R&B times with Destiny’s Child wearing feather jackets, long cornrows and gobs of bling to match. Her style always aligns with her message and her positive boss attitude.
