http://www.bostonherald.com/news/national/politics/2008/view.bg?articleid=1117233&srvc=rss Cindy McCain sets tone for GOP fashion By Associated Press Friday, September 5, 2008 - Updated 13m ago Not since Jacqueline Kennedy first donned her signature pillbox hats have fashionistas paid such close attention to what the women of politics are wearing. Friday may be the start of New York's Fashion Week, but couture has been in the Minnesota convention hall all week. It kicked off on Monday with Cindy McCain and First Lady Laura Bush in Oscar de la Renta. Vanity Fair editors estimated that McCain's fierce saffron shirt dress with the popped collar, diamond earrings, four-strand pearl necklace, white Chanel watch and strappy shoes totaled up to $313,100. And Bush's white sensible suit, Stuart Weitzman heels and pearl stud earrings would ring up to $4,325. =============== Last night I commented while watching the GOP Convention. " Cindy McCain looks like she bought that outfit in the sixties. " Well it is an attempt to get the Jackie Kennedy look. She didn't succeed. Cindy's outfit, I commented looked like remnants from a bad pimp suit. Worn in the sixties. Her outfit didn't form or touch anywhere. Didn't flatter her in any manner. Look at the price of that RAG! What a waste and she wants to spend our tax dollars on herself shopping all day and buying dresses we pay for so she can impress those who do not matter. Like we don't matter to them.:flame: ============= Michelle Obama, on the other hand did buy and wear somethings off the rack Across the runway, er, aisle is Michelle Obama, wife of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, who is setting trends of her own. The sleeveless, black-and-white dress she wore on "The View" became a must-have, off-the-rack item. But she mixes high and low, as the night her husband addressed the Mile High Stadium at the Democrats' convention in Denver she was wearing a printed dress by hot designer Thakoon Panichgul. =============== Across the runway, er, aisle is Michelle Obama, wife of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, who is setting trends of her own. She wore a designer dress one night. I am sure it didn't cost 313,000 dollars. What Michelle Obama, wore every night look fitting and good on her too. Unlike the frump, Cindy. http://news.yahoo.com/story//ap/20080905/ap_en_ot/cvn_gop_fashion Is that Sexist?
