Power Suit經典人物 鐵娘子辭世
Iron Lady's Classic Power Suit


相對地,珍珠配飾則是柴契爾夫人真摯深情的象徵,話說曾有形象顧問和造型師等人建議柴契爾夫人不要佩戴珍珠項鍊,但她不曾妥協,因為那個她常戴的雙鍊珍珠項鍊,是老公Denis在她生下雙胞龍鳳胎後送她的禮物,從此珍珠耳環和項鍊都成為柴契爾夫人招牌形象的一部份。

除了媲美男性的招牌強勢作風和代表權力象徵的衣著之外,其實鐵娘子身為女性,也有以柔性裝束面對鎂光燈的時候。根據曾任柴契爾夫人造型師的前Aquascutum設計師Margaret King表示,其實她心思細膩且非常女性化,在試穿衣服時甚至會像個小女孩一樣,穿到喜歡的衣服時會開心地轉圈圈。我們也可以從她出席晚宴時穿著的長裙禮服中,看見掩藏在西裝套裝下的優雅「媚」力。

柴契爾夫人的柔性裝束展現首相身份外的成熟嫵媚風韻。

絕不能不提的是柴契爾夫人的招牌髮型,往後梳起半屏山瀏海,蓬鬆微波髮流的短髮,賦予她猶如母獅的威嚴氣勢,也為她贏得髮型網站Fabriah.com網站網友票選近50年最有影響力髮型第5名。其妝容曾受到前法國總統密特朗(François Mitterrand)的讚賞,形容柴契爾夫人擁有Marilyn Monroe的性感雙唇和羅馬皇帝Caligula的堅毅雙眼。但夫人的保養秘訣相當獨特,她說自己從來不讓臉碰到任何水或是肥皂,若有上妝則以卸妝產品去除殘妝,並用滋潤面霜保濕,至於到底保養功效如何,從柴契爾夫人的膚質來看,應該具有一定功效。

柴契爾夫人曾說過:「權威感和女人味一樣,盡在不言中,若要開口說出來,就味道盡失了。」從她的裝扮和建立的形象看來,柴契爾夫人的確成功地以無聲的服裝語言將英國首相的權威感表露無遺,也征服了英國人民的心,藉由套裝和配件所建立的「Power Suit」形象,更成為服裝史上經典的一頁。««

2007年柴契爾夫人成為英國史上唯一一位在世時受銅雕表彰的前首相,看到雕像時還打趣地說:「這雕像不是用鐵做的呢」。

»»Former British prime minister and also the first female prime minister in English history Margaret Thatcher passed away yesterday. She left her great achievement on the nation’s economic prosperity and her iron-hand ruling style for the English people. In addition, her class “power suit” also stood for the era’s powerful women’s outfit.

In 1980, followed by the rise of middle class, the women right gradually became more equal with men. While they needed to dress up in public occasions and had to show their authority, they choose to wear two pieces suits: blazer with shoulder pad and kneel-long pencil skirts. As the prime minister, Margaret Thatcher became the representative figure of the power suits.

To enhance her powerful image, she chose to put on the suits with her favorite color blue. To deliver her female side, she used bow blouses to balance the suit. She was quoted, “I often wear bows; they are rather softening, they are rather pretty.”

As to the accessary, pearl necklaces and black leather bags were her favorite. The reason why she loved pearl so much was that her husband Dennis gave her a pearl necklace when their twins were born in 1953. On the other hand, the black leather bags represented her weapons in politics field and her unshakable image and power in England. The four dressing elements formed her signature style would forever last in clothing history.««
