Jennifer Aniston gives one of her best performances ever in Apple TV+’s new series The Morning Show. In it she plays Alex Levy, a long-running morning talk show anchor whose world flips upside down when her co-host becomes embroiled in a #MeToo scandal. As Levy, Aniston is nuanced, complex, and captivating. She also wears a red trench coat in the third episode that I can’t get out of my head.
The coat, which you can see in the clip, below, is perfect, and Alex wears it when she’s grilling the male executives who run her network. “I’ve let you bozos handle this long enough,” she says at one point. “We’re doing things my way.”
Here’s the thing: Alex could’ve worn sweatpants during this scene, and I’d still be terrified—but the red coat adds an extra oomph. So much oomph, in fact, that I’ve decided I need to wear a power coat during all my future arguments.
What is a power coat, you ask? Well, it has to have at least one of these three qualities: (1) structure, (2) a bold color, or (3) long length. The ultimate power coat will have all three, like Alex’s.
These celebrities, below, have all embraced the, well, power of the power coat. Take a look for yourself, and shop accordingly.
