Michelle Obama is the celebrity whom British women admire the most for her professional style, according to a study carried out by e-trailer Kaleidoscope.

It's unarguable that her love of feminine-cut dresses, eye-catching prints and bold color palettes, has been lauded in countless 'best dressed' lists worldwide. Hence Great Britain is no exception.

The 51-year-old, who regularly steps out in hot-off-the-runway creations by the likes of Jason Wu, Maki Oh, J. Crew and Thakoon, was applauded for her 'clean, modern silhouettes' that stands the test of time.

The study, which quizzed 500 UK women and commissioned by e-tailer Kaleidoscope, found that fashion choices are strongly inspired by females in the political sphere.

In terms of what makes Brit women feel most empowered in the work place, a pair of killer heels (62 per cent), a classic shift dress (51 per cent), a figure-flattering pencil skirt (23 per cent) and then an ill-fitting jumper was identified as the least empowering item with the majority of respondents (53 per cent).

In a statement by the organization's spokesperson: ''It's brilliant to see from these results that UK women are favouring such strong public figures as inspiration for their work wardrobes,'

''I think it's fantastic that women are gearing their fashion choices around what makes them feel most empowered and confident– rather than purely just keeping up with key trends.

''Our latest findings really reflect a new mentality and attitude which we have seen emerging throughout society in recent years – women want to be seen as a force to be reckoned with in the workplace and feel most empowered channelling this through their fashion choices.''
