MR Style Icon: Elisa Sednaoui

Zoom
August 19, 2014

The woman can dress.

Do you think it’s because Elisa Sednaoui is a Sagittarius that she has successfully been able to juggle multiple careers that span the occupational index of acting, directing, modeling and philanthropy? (In 2013, she launched a foundation to promote creativity in the classroom for kids and whatnot). Or do you think she’s simply an overachiever who has been able to champion on-screen irresistibility (I would be lying if I told you she hasn’t sold to me at least one pair of Chanel sunglasses) and beyond?

Regardless of our opinions, it appears as though her style is indubitably a window into her flexible vocational successes. Just when it seems like she’s hit a home run with her seemingly signature, unflinching style (e.g., a pinstriped double breasted suit and tie), she surprises you with the antithesis of it (a three-quarter length midi dress in pop-y shades of turquoise and pink), confidently worn with the same level of conviction, gumption and swagger as the first look.

So how does she do it, right?

I guess if we knew, she wouldn’t be an icon. So, no more questions! Let’s just look at pictures, make like Hostess and say it: now that’s the stuff.

    Women who ooze confidence can wear whatever they want and do whatever they want. Her stances and face say I’m here and I’m killin’ it.

    Warm regards,
    Alexandra

  • Lena Sgambati

    I can tell you one thing I bought those fricken knee high socks because I fell in love with the look – and I never wore them

  • Greer

    I love this please make it a regular segment! Particularly because I have never heard of her before but am now in love!

    she’s undoubtedly gorgeous, and I love the street images of her, she clearly has genes and style. hard to be convinced by modelling shots where it would seem someone else has styled her, I’m assuming that they have ( e.g. Gerard Darel), even though I’m sure she has influenced the look. i think she looks best in her ‘south american farm girl’ look in shot 20. ‘-)

  • Perry

    Oh, and her godfather is Christian Louboutin.

  • Tracy

    Her hair looks fabulous!

    The pink suit and white coat look and the dog cutoff tee look are so different and yet neither seem out of place. So good.
