What do you wear as a lady who lunches? A sophisticated sheath dress, no doubt. Well, two fashionable women agree. Victoria Beckham and Naomi Campbell wore matching sheath dresses at Fashion 4 Development's annual luncheon.
With Campbell in white and Beckham in black, their subdued tones and minimalist designs made sense for the occasion — spotlighting the work and goals of the organization and not flashy outfits. That didn't stop them from looking good while they did it, though.
F4D's website explains that the organization "utilizes fashion as a platform" to gain attention and bolster star power and media power to create sustainable change and development. When fashion and social good team up everyone wins, right? F4D supports the United Nations Millennium Development Goals, which hopes to halve poverty rates and stop the spread of HIV/AIDS, and “Every Woman Every Child," which encourages policy and financial action to protect vulnerable women and children.
If you're looking to keep things professional and do a little power-dressing of your own to help make the world a better place or just be the best #girlboss you can be, a sheath dress like Campbell and Beckham's is just the ticket.
Here are seven sheath dresses to get their lunching ladies power look.
