First, Yves Saint Laurent created his Le Smoking tux in 1966. This impeccable silhouette gave women a certain masculine power, through its sharp edges, confident styling and delicate tailoring. Every now and then we see celebrities and designers channeling that look. You must have seen how incredibly stunning Anne Hathaway looked in her luxe Lanvin tuxedo plus her glittering Brian Atwood heels during the Oscars.
And you will never forget how Carrie Bradshaw shows up in Stanford's wedding as his best man, not in a bridesmaid dress, instead, a Christian Dior petite Taille tuxedo.
What really matters is your confidence and how you accessorize. Anne chose a brooch, Carrie picked a statement making headpiece. Here is something I managed to find from the Sex and the City 2 closet breakdown.
Something similar about these two stylish ladies are the show stopping shoes. Would you go with a pair of Charlotte Olympia or Brian Atwood?

For Carrie fans out there, I would love to share the secret behind Patricia Field and the SATC2 closet here and here.
