Marissa Mayer, CEO of Style

By Millie

Bold, sophisticated, fun, and feminine. Marissa Mayer, the famous ex-Googler and current Yahoo! CEO, is one of our favorite style icons (and a personal hero of mine, in and outside of the office). Despite her impressively busy schedule, new mom Mayer clearly loves fashion, and it loves her right back. Mayer’s daytime look is chic and fashion-forward, and it gets even more interesting at night, where she is one to watch at galas, benefits and more around the bay area.

Check out some of our favorite Marissa Mayer ensembles below:

  • Stunning in Oscar de la Renta

    Rocking a red Oscar de la Renta shell and voluminous blue and purple skirt at Glamour’s 2009 Women of the Year Awards in New York City, where Mayer was a recipient. De la Renta is one of Mayer’s favorite designers, and she once paid $60,000 at a charity auction for a lunch with him.

  • Powerful chic

    Speaking at Fortune’s Most Powerful Women awards, in a patterned teal fit-and-flare and her favorite cropped cardi by Oscar de la Renta.

  • Fabulous 40 Under 40

  • The Fashion Matrix

    Another day, another red carpet, another flattering dress. At the Matrix Awards in NYC, Mayer wore a classic boatneck silhouette dress with a cinched waist and full skirt in an eye-catching pattern of green and black.

  • Gorgeous formal maternity wear
