Yves Saint Laurent created the Le Smoking tuxedo suit for women in 1966.

The sharp suit was the first of its kind to earn attention in the fashion world and in popular culture.

It pioneered long, minimalist, androgynous styles for women as well as the use of power suits and the trouser-suit in modern-day society.

Fashion photography echoes the influence of this suit in shoots that feature androgynous models with slicked-back hair in a mannish three-piece suit, a style that was first popularized in photographs by Helmut Newton.

Yves Saint-Laurent was seen by many as having empowered women by giving them the option to wear clothes normally worn by men with influence and power.

Add a silk or sheer slip or floral, romantic print blouse underneath for a truly 90s look. If it's Dress Down Thursday: Bra, no panties.

Smoking hot.
