What if a dating app could match people to their soulmate with a simple DNA test? Netflix’s The One’ explores exactly that: an exhilarating mix of sci-fi, drama and chick-flick, with many dark turns and an eerie dystopian plot, played in a world where this App becomes the cultural zeitgeist overnight.
Rebecca Webb, played by actress Hanna Ware, is the scientist turned famous CEO who discovers the idea of romantic compatibility by DNA matching. She comes through as a powerful female protagonist, almost always sporting clean cut and single toned power suits.
Webb most definitely shows us how to sartorially play the role too. Her look is reminiscent of a mix of immaculate figure-fitting suits seen on the runway at Alexander McQueen, and the oversized ensembles with more ease and shoulder pads synonymous with the runway at Jacquemus. The suits are usually layered with a contrasting patterned blouse, adding a little spice to the generally monochromatic look.
As working from home continues to be the norm for some, the suit remains a classic way of creating an undeniably powerful silhouette—even if it’s just on Zoom meetings for now.
