Have you been watching House of Cards on Netflix? If not…you should be! Robin Wright won a Golden Globe in 2014 for her role as Claire Underwood in this brilliant political Machiavellian drama.
She is undoubtably the reigning Queen and master of monochromatic style.
Claire Underwood style is impeccable. She always looks amazing.
Each outfit is a tailored masterpiece of body conscious streamlined no frills style.
She rarely accessorizes. Choosing a watch and thick rimmed reading glasses instead.
She often wears unusual necklines and strong shoulders that emphasize her beautiful collarbone.
Mostly seen in neutrals, they switched her up to a bit of colour when she went back briefly to being a brunette.
She looks powerful, focused, feminine and smart.
I’ve put together a Polyvore set showing how you can steal this look for yourself quite easily.

What a clever feature! She is indeed a powerful and aspirational woman. I love how you put together the package of looks across both price points.

I love her style on that show! She always looks so classy but with a bit of edge. So good. We haven’t started the new season yet but I have heard it’s great!
As despicable as her character is, I’m mesmerized by her style. When I saw the asymmetrical necklace last season (which you show in the fourth photo), I was hooked. I’ve been looking for something like it ever since without luck.
She’s impeccable and I want her look (if not her moral compass) when I need to assert myself. She oozes confidence, yeah? xox

Seriously…I must be the only one not watching that show. Even my two sons watch it! I might have to check it out just for the fashions!
I don’t know if we’ve had House of Cards over here yet. I’d have to check on Satellite. So no, I haven’t seen it. I like this style. It isn’t me, but it’s still very nice.
I adore her style. ADORE. That show is awesome too, although they are both horrible people.
My husband just started watching this show on Netflix, and I may have to join him – just for the style!
Robin Wright has always been a beauty, hasn’t she? She looks amazing here, love the structure of that asymmetric neckline and how good she looks with short hair.
Dying to see House of Cards but I suppose it’ll be ages until it reaches Freeview unless, of course, we do the illegal thing! x

Haven’t noticed this over here yet. I like her streamlined look, but perhaps with a little more life like jewellery . But if she’s a baddy, maybe that would soften her too much and we might like her…horrors! 🙂 xo Jazzy Jack

I haven’t watched any TV series for so long. Still watching Mad Men third season haha. This sounds good though. I may buy the whole series for the summer holidays….
I just started watching the third season, and Claire’s clothing really should get it’s own award. Everything is cut to make her look streamlined, confident and smart, without being boring. It’s like she’s masquerading as a steel grey Maserati, or perhaps a shark? Anyway, I very much enjoy the show.
Nice dress choices in the feature at the end of the post.

I love this style, but I am afraid I am too fickle to stick to it. And if I wear all black, Ron starts to complain and talking about funerals and the such.
What a beautiful woman that Claire and what a beautiful clothes they picked for her to wear.
