Description: The first major work to explore the role of fashion and style in the careers of first ladies and women politicians. Power Dressing is an informative and entertaining sartorial analysis of over 50 women in politics around the world and will appeal to a wide range of readers, from enthusiasts of popular culture to those interested in current affairs.
Synopsis: Some find the constant scrutiny an unwelcome intrusion; others use fashion as their secret weapon. Whatever their views, women in politics know they will be judged by how they dress more than their male counterparts. In Power Dressing, fashion journalist Robb Young offers an engaging perspective on the ability of style to influence the careers of women politicians and first ladies. Concise thematic chapters are interspersed with profiles of more than 50 serving and former women presidents, prime ministers, MPs, royals and wives from over 30 countries, ranging from such contemporary figures as Michelle Obama, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, Angela Merkel and Queen Rania of Jordan to such iconic women as Eva Peron, Imelda Marcos and Margaret Thatcher. Featuring hundreds of photographs that shed light on political context, and quotations from prominent figures commenting on each woman's style, this fascinating book reveals the milestone 'fashion moments' as well as the unspoken rules of the political fashion game.
