…but probably don’t right now. Women just don’t get as much media coverage for being CEO or president as they would for other things. But it’s okay. We love them for being leaders and hope there will be more! And we also want to see how they’re wearing their titles (the fascinating part). Without further adieu…
- Chancellor, Germany
- She tends to wear plain, traditional suits, too. In various colors. I think it’s safe to say that this is what the young, modern woman doesn’t want. They neither flatter her figure nor highlight her femininity. In fact, they look rather drab on her. She almost looks tired. I wonder how she’d look with a Veni Vici suit on? (Humor me for a moment.)
- President, Brazil
- She also wears a lot of plain suits but it seems like she wears patterns in hers as well.
- Co-chair, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
She also wears traditional suits but they’re more flattering on her. The material of her suits are more sleek and remind us of the modern-day, male suit. She one wore a green suit-like piece that I find intriguing – but I can’t really say too much more about it. Read the caption for more details.

- Traditional suiting, not quite fitted but works for her and isn’t unflattering.
