how to... POWER DRESS

LIKE FIC­TIONAL FIRST LADY CLAIRE UN­DER­WOOD

Elle (Canada) - - Career -

“What gives Claire [played by Robin Wright] con­fi­dence is that her clothes fit her well and they’re

very un­fussy. The key is hav­ing things that fit your body cor­rectly and that are in­ter­change­able. If you’ve got a cer­tain colour pal­ette that you like, it’s smart to have things that mix and match. It’s sim­i­lar to men’s tai­lor­ing; most men prob­a­bly only have three suits, but they have a lot of dif­fer­ent shirts that they can put with those suits, and shoes and ties. A lot of peo­ple think Claire is very sexy, which is a great com­pli­ment be­cause we never show any skin. It’s never a

flashy look of any kind. Claire shows her power with her ac­tions

and her brain and her busi­ness acu­men.” – Ke­mal Harris, cos­tume de­signer for Claire Un­der­wood
