Ok, a question here. Power = smile or no smile?

Elaine and I are working on a portrait that shall show power and authority.

Is it best to express that with the photo where she is smiling or not smiling? And if you know, why do you think so?

To me the photo with no smile is much more power, but I find it silly that think that way. And yeah I know her body language on the no-smile-image is more upright and she is looking more direct to the camera which also express more confidence. But even with the exact same pose I think the no-smile image would win the power contest.
