Happy 49th birthday, Robin Wright! The actress, best known for her memorable roles in Forrest Gump, The Princess Bride, and House of Cards, continues to blow us away with her impeccable sense of style---both on and off screen.

To channel her power-hungry character Claire Underwood, Wright and her longtime stylist, Kemal Harris, have been turning to softer color palettes, straying away from the timeless power suits faux political figures have donned in films and TV shows of the past. "I wanted to show a little bit of her character's vulnerability through her wardrobe, which I think we accomplished with softer colors, lighter materials, and fuller skirts," Harris tells InStyle. We couldn't be more thrilled with the style change!
