Well Suited: Burberry's Chief Executive of Everything, Christopher Bailey

That whole dress-for-the-job-you-want thing? It works.

It's not often that you find people running both the creative and the business sides of a fashion house, but Christopher Bailey is doing just that at Burberry. He's been designing the brand's collections since 2001, but he took on the additional role of CEO when former chief executive Angela Ahrendts left for a new job at Apple.

Bailey's personal style isn't always as colorful or as whimsical as the clothes he sends down the runway. He favors dark suits or dark blazers with dark jeans (are you noticing a trend here?) and a crisp white or blue shirt. It's a look that serves him well when he takes a bow at the end of each of his shows (he's seen above thanking the audience after his fall 2014 runway presentation) and translates seamlessly to the conference room, where he's already started making decisions about Burberry's business. We're looking forward to seeing what he'll serve up for next spring during his show on Tuesday.
