The New Power Dressing

Though it may be cliché to say that a man in a uniform has a certain allure, it's often true that the combo has the ability to make a girl’s heart swoon.

Or more than his dashing good looks in the uniform, it may have been the power behind the uniform that caught the stylish Josephine’s eye. After spending time in prison during the Reign of Terror and seeing her first husband guillotined as a part of this period of the French Revolution, it was as if Napoleon swooped in from the battlefields to save her.
