The Power Of A Woman In A Tux

It's no secret that androgyny is a popular trend amongst fashion designers like Maison Martin Margiela and Saint Laurent Paris. What was once a power suit comprising of a classic pencil skirt in a chic pastel colour combined with a form-fitting blazer is now a head-to-toe tuxedo with an optional pair of killer stilettos. Last Sunday, at the 2014 BAFTA Awards, Angelina Jolie added herself to the list of statement-making celebrities who've opted for a suit rather than a flamboyant gown, the traditional garb for women in Hollywood at extravagant events. Though our fantasies generally involve elegant gowns by Oscar de la Renta and Elie Saab and dominate our best-dressed lists, it is always refreshing to see a female celebrity in a tux. Though it may radiate masculinity, for some mysterious reason, it can be even more seductive than that full-skirted dress. So in honour of Angelina's bold move, here's a list of some of the best female tuxes that have made their way down the Red Carpet.
