Margaret Thatcher Set the Bar for Power Dressing
Margaret Thatcher, Britain's first and only female Prime Minister, passed away earlier this morning of a stroke at the age of 87. As one of the first women to hold such a powerful political position in the Western world, Thatcher's political legacy will obviously endure for decades to come--but her fashion legacy, too, will have a lasting effect on female politicians. In many ways Thatcher's dress sense set the mold for how female politicians dress today: conservative, powerful (yet feminine) and above all, consistent.
