I know we've talked ad nauseam about "menswear-inspired" fashion for women — oh, look, is that a structured blazer?! — but this morning's Armani show was just that at its finest, promise. Models sported pixie cuts and Edie Sedgwick earrings under adorable oversized bowlers, Plexiglas ties (yeah, you heard that right), and lots of we-mean-business jackets; now, we're fantasizing about a career as the gamine cutie who arrives at the stuffy, male-centric law office in wide-legged trousers — and ends up revolutionizing the entire industry.

Sometimes she forwent coffee in favor of a formal tea.

Others took the company car. She preferred to power-walk.

A lover once gave her a handwritten card that said, simply, “I love the way you wear a ruff.”

Naturally, she had her group of power girlfriends, and none of them were too snobby for dangly earrings.

She was fond of insisting, “Behind every powerful woman…there should be two more powerful women!” — especially after a martini or two.

Her furs said just as much as her inter-office memos.

Important business trips often necessitated a deep V neckline and a disguised identity.

Even on her days off, it wasn’t unusual to catch her in a stiff collar.
