What do a Queen, a Lawyer, a Rapper and a First Lady Have in Common? Fashion.

Elite Daily wrote a post about how the successful are known to have uniformity with their outfits. Of course, on the top of their article, they have pictures of both FaceBook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Apple’s Steve Jobs. “Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity” they say.

Of course, as a fashion enthusiast, I say NO

I think fashion is an important component of character expression, and I definitely don’t think it has anything to do with success. So, to argue Elite Daily’s stance that successful people wear the same thing every day, I would like to dedicate this article to the many successful people who don’t let their successful inclination to “uniformity” affect their sense of fashion.

I can’t begin to explain how captivated I am by this woman. Not only is she breathtakingly beautiful, but she is smart, too! This British-Lebanese character not only takes great strides with her head-turning fashion sense, but is a lawyer, author, multi-linguist and activist! George is a lucky guy.


Kanye West

Love him or hate him, Kanye has his foot in the fashion world just as much as he does the music industry. This dude is iconic for his looks. He even has a say in Kim K’s wardrobe! Kanye is definitely a success, and his passion for fashion makes him OK with us!


Michelle Obama

This was an easy one. The first lady has been working her style in the media since day one of the Obama presidency. And the dress she wore at the Kennedy Center Honors definitely earned her a spot on this list! Not only is Michelle the first lady, but she is a graduate of Princeton and Harvard, and she was a lawyer and a writer. Fashion, beauty and smarts!


Jack Dorsey

I’m team Twitter when it comes to the co-founder/creator’s fashion sense in comparison to Mark Zuckerberg. Jack Dorsey doesn’t have to wear the same thing everyday to beast on the social media market. He might be bumping heads with Mark in the social media market, but he definitely KO’d him when it comes to his style. Props, Jack!

When you think “successful women”, Oprah should be one of the first that pops into your head. Philanthropist, talk show hostess, actress, producer–the list goes on. On top of all that success, she still makes time for fashion and beauty!

You might be thinking, “Sara, obviously he has to have style–he’s a model.” Yeah, I guess, but how can you not have him on a list of successful people with fashion sense? I mean, look at him. A tux is a tux, but David adds his own style to an otherwise plain concept. Not all models have an obviously natural sense of style, you know? David makes the list!


Queen Elizabeth

Crown or hat, the Queen is iconic. There’s no one more successful. I mean, she’s historic. Her majesty the Queen is working it in the fashion world with her own personal style at 88 years old. She’s powerful and wonderful with her effortless wardrobe!


Simple might be easy and comfortable, and it might even be fashionable. However, it definitely doesn’t define intelligence or success! There are countless successful people, far beyond my quick list, that make time for fashion. So, to Elite Daily, I have to say sorrybut I disagree. Fashion and power can come hand-in-hand.

  • Hi!!!!
    I am a non Muslim fifteen year old girl and I was just wondering if you could answer some of my questions.I’m not interested in conversion or anything like that but I’m just curious about Islam because there are a lot of Muslims in my area and I was just wondering why/what they believe what they do. If it wouldn’t be a bother could you please answer the following questions.

    1. Do Muslims belive that Muhmmand is the greatest prophet or just the last one?
    2. Why do muslims think he’s a prophet/ what is the need for the quran?
    3. Is it true about the quran telling muslims to kill non believers
    4. why do muslims not think that Jesus is God?
    6. If you converted what made you convert/choose Islam
    7. What is the greatest thing about your relgion and do you have a realtionship with Allah like how evegenical christians claim to have with God?

    Thank you so much. And I don’t mean to sound snarky or in polite (I know sometimes comments can come across that way) I’m just very curious about your religion.

    Thanks again and may Allah bless you

    ps. I posted this on another article but then I realized it was written and 2009 and I figured that might be a bit out dated lol

    • Salam!
      I’d be happy to answer your questions the best I can, although I’m not a scholar.
      1. As Muslims, we must love and accept all prophets equally. Prophet Mohammed PBUH was the very last prophet and helped further spread Islam.
      2. I’m not sure who you are referring to. The need for the Quran is the same as all other religious texts. The Quran is a guidebook for Muslims.
      3. No it isn’t true. Muslims must not harm any innocent. There is much more to it, but it would be better to actually read about it yourself.
      4.Jesus PBUH is a prophet to Muslims because we believe that God is sole-ruler of all things. His power was given to him by God so that he may prove that God is present.
      5. I didn’t convert (I was born and raised Muslim, alhamdulAllah), but I know many people who have converted. These people were all stuck in an unhealthy life style–partying, drinking, fornication, etc. They felt as if their lives were unhealthy and empty, and they found peace in Islam that allowed them to have a healthier life.
      6. The greatest thing for me is the inner peace I feel inside. I love modesty, and I love respect, and I think that my religion promotes that more than any other. I also love that Allah is Most Merciful, so when my human imperfections lead me to sin, I have so many chances to be forgiven.

      Best of luck to you! Thank you for your interest!

      • thank you 🙂 that makes a lot of sense. Islam is such an interesting religion and i’d like to read the quran sometime in my life 🙂

        • You definetely should! 🙂 It’s full of very interesting lessons and can be very Helpful , even to a non-muslim. 🙂
          Have a nice day. 🙂
          PS: it’s really awesome that your interested in Islam ! You should talk to one of your muslim friends about it maybe they can tell you a lot about it too ! 😀

    • I’d pretty much say the same as snorlax, but add a bit more.

      1. Prophet Muhammad is the last prophet, they were all great in their own ways.
      2. Because the Qu-ran was given to prophet Muhammed, it is a guide as someone else said. But it was needed to re-confirm the truth and set believers back on track. After Jesus- people started worshipping Jesus as God although that was not his message. So Islam was needed in order to bring people back to the true teachings.
      3. Only when in war or battle with the non-believers and they are trying to kill you. But you cannot randomly harm any innocent. Its forbidden.
      4. Because Jesus never claimed to be, and God’s holy books have always asserted that God is one with no association- to believe that Jesus is God, is to associate God with human. Jesus was another beloved prophet and God created him like he created Adam, and gave Jesus abilities.
      6. I converted from Christianity to Islam because a) God is ONE and we shouldn’t associate beings and creation with him B) Christianity has gone astray so much, people sin and say its okay because Jesus ‘died for them’ and also they do things which God said they shouldn’t ie. Eat pork. C) many other complex things I would state but you will learn in time, I don’t want to confuse you.
      7. Just pray my dear. The same thing really. Obey God, talk to him, cry to him, turn to him, pray to him. Have that bond with him. God is loving and accepting and will never turn his back on you as long as you remember him.


      • Wow thank you so much. This is really making sense to me. 🙂 I used to be a christian too but after some research I was finding that I don’t really think that Jesus was saying he was God. I think if I decided to be relgious again Islam would be the religion I would choose to follow. Thank you so much! True Islam and not the stuff you see on the news seems very beautiful to me 🙂
