The appreciation of of powerful women has never been more relevant or necessary to pop culture, especially with the recent release of Captain Marvel, the first female Avenger to get her own breakout superhero film. And there is almost no better way than to demonstrate your personal superpowers by donning a cape, a symbol of confidence, strength, and of course, a chic understanding of style. The cape, coupled with the power stance one takes by placing their hands on their hips, feet shoulder length apart, and assuming the gaze of a warrior who is not to be messed with in the slightest, is a token of resilience. As for adding an errant mask to the ensemble, well, it’s not always necessary, but it can still be a look. From Linda Evangelista to Tiffany Haddish, some stellar subjects have been photographed for W, capes and all, proving that you don’t have to possess supernatural powers to dress like a hero.
