Sex and the City Damages Suits
Miranda Hobbes, Sex and the City Ellen Parsons, Damages Harvey Specter, Suits
Oh, Miranda. While never quite as effortlessly stylish as her pals, there was something admirable about her ball-busting, nononsense power suits. Who else could make partner at her maledominated firm and still hit the town for Cosmos with the girls? Ellen could probably make a potato sack look on-trend, but she really sparkled in her girly blouses, mod-cut coats and demure silk dresses on Damages. She even stole a scene or two from the icy Glenn Close, an Emmy-deserving feat if there ever was one. Harvey Specter wears the hell out of a tailored suit, making it look as much a part of his body as his smirk. His style choices on Suits veer toward the subtly bold: peak lapels, thick-striped ties and dashing three-piece suits. No wonder this guy always closes.
