From Eve's fig leaf to Hilary Clinton's pantsuit, the way we choose to clothe our bodies can carry layer upon layer of meaning. Across cultures and throughout history people have used clothing to signify power and status, to adorn and beautify, even to prop up or dismantle regimes.

Here, explore the best-dressed figures in history, from Cleopatra to Beyoncé, Joan of Arc to Ru Paul. Some have influenced the fashion of today, while some have used their clothing to change the world. But all have a sartorial story to tell.
