DeGeneres is known for her signature style, consisting of a tailored suit and a good pair of sneakers. She made the combination her trademark while hosting 19 seasons of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” “I had a way of dressing that isn’t the way most women were dressing,” DeGeneres told FN. “I started seeing women come to the show attempting to dress like me. I would see versions of myself in the audience, and I thought, ‘There’s a market here.’”

The comedian is currently traveling the country with Michelle Obama, hosting the former first lady’s “The Light We Carry” book tour.
