Who Are You Wearing?

There was a time when we (women) were defined by our supposed feminine expressions; cooking, dress-making, knowing that we should be seen and not heard. While things have changed immensely, we find ourselves being defined by a new set of criteria as we work our way up the ladder to 'equality' (I'm not a feminist, I'm a human equality activist). Here's the big question though:

Are female role models being defined solely by their talent/s these days? If not, what are the other crucial criteria that makes a woman, a true 'WOMAN' in the modern sense of the word?

The answer is her fashion sense. Yes, not any particular fashion sense, and not any specific allegiance to trends, but the truth of the matter is that some of the most powerful women in the world are able to extend their influence under the umbrella of fashion. And the fashion houses are more than willing to comply.
