Last weekend, I was playing my usual Fall role of football widow when I stumbled across a Legally Blonde marathon. It got me thinking about fashion and political fashion. The second installment of Legally Blonde had some really cute fashion choices! Granted they were mostly pink!
This got me thinking about fashion and politics in general. I really think the two are closely linked. I do not aspire to ever hold office, but I sure hope B runs someday! I think that the "political wives" are such assets to their husbands and how they dress really sets the "tone" of the campaign. Think for a minute about Jacqueline Kennedy. Her style influenced the campaign, the administration that followed and the entire nation! Women copied her style everywhere! Even the way she decorated the White House started trends. I certainly think her style is still being emulated by political wives everywhere! I'm certainly a fan of both the woman and her style!
Last night Cindy McCain was wearing the most beautiful cobalt blue suit, which was stunning with her platinum hair. Michelle Obama was wearing a red shift that was very sporty and flattering. These two women are in the position to dress to compliment their husbands and represent the respective campaigns. Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton both dress much more conservatively in muted colors (Palin) and pantsuits (Clinton). And people still think Palin is, what, too pretty? I know we are all very educated voters, and would never vote for a candidate simply because their wife dressed nicely, but does anyone else enjoy observing their fashion choices? I wonder if we will ever again have a First Lady like Jackie who influences our lives so much?
Jackie on the Campaign Trail:
Now for Mrs. Obama:
Please don't copy this America!!!!
My opinion is not politically motivated! That dress is hit!
She has much improved though!
Now for style perfection:
Also in purple-
I want this outfit!
Remind you of anyone?
