Michele Bachmann Page 1
Last night, the nation’s GOP candidates spent an hour, or perhaps in some cases, hours, getting their hair primped, their makeup done, and their ensembles styled — all so they could take part in CNN’s foreign policy debate. Accordingly, we spent an hour, perhaps two, critiquing them.
There’s really not much more to presidential fashion that suits and ties, but when it comes to presidential candidates, it’s a whole other story. By and large, the field of Republicans jockeying for Barack Obama‘s job have abandoned formality in an attempt to send a political message.
We’ll leave the critiques of what the Republican presidential hopefuls said at last night’s CNN Tea Party debate in Tampa to our friends at Mediaite. But as far as we’re concerned, what they wore spoke volumes.
Some women might not like Michele Bachmann‘s politics, but they sure do love her hair. All over the country, hair stylists are being asked to do whatever they can to mimic the Republican Congresswoman’s lush auburn mane for their clients.
Whether we like it or not (and we understand if you don’t), women who are politicians are always going to be analyzed for what they wear. And according to an old interview with presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann, the Republican of Minnesota has never really had trouble getting dressed — or climbing on top of her high heels.
Today our friends over at Mediaite alerted us to the fact that Bristol Palin thinks Michele Bachmann is totally ripping off her mom’s style. Um, okay.
Sarah Palin made a campaign stop Wednesday to support Michele Bachmann and showed up in the following outfit: velvet blazer, black tank, a triple strand of layered pearls, and a large silver cross necklace.
UPDATE: There is a second silver necklace, with an as-of-yet unidentified bauble.
