Mitt Romney Page 1
Tonight the American people cast their votes to re-elect President Barack Obama. But, of course, both parties came prepared to take the White House, and Ann Romney stepped out looking poised and ready to take on the role of FLOTUS in Republican red.
The Romneys hit the campaign trail yesterday to try and convince the undecided to vote for Mitt come November 6 (the countdown to election day begins!) And while we’ve seen many a bad outfit from Ann, we like what the FLOTUS hopeful was wearing this time.
If you watched last night’s presidential debate, you might’ve picked up that President Barack Obama‘s American flag pin was noticeably smaller than Mitt Romney‘s. Even if you had the television on “mute”, you could see that the pins were distractingly dissimilar in size, and that there might’ve been what seemed like dirt on Romney’s. So, what’s up with that?
On Wednesday, Mitt Romney appeared on Univision‘s Meet the Candidates forum in Florida. For better or for worse, however, we barely paid attention to what he was saying because our peepers were focused on his overly bronzed skin. Was that due to self-tanner? Bad lighting? Was it on purpose?
The general consensus among the fashion insiders is that Paul Ryan has terrible style. Style “experts” everywhere are clicking their tongues and lamenting the fact that Mitt Romney‘s VP pick forgoes tailored suits for his “Dad’s suit”, that he never wears a tie, and that his square-toed shoes are, well, square-toed. But is his style truly that bad, or are they just too critical?
Despite receiving a lot of flak for wearing a $990 Reed Krakoff t-shirt back in May, Ann Romney still showed off her fashionable side during a recent trip to Iowa.
For some people, last night’s Obama fundraiser hosted by Sarah Jessica Parker was a success. But for others, it was a big ol’ mess.
Urban Outfitters is not afraid of a little bit of controversy, and this time, it’s selling Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, and Ron Paul wares.
Today Mitt and Ann Romney appeared on CBS‘s This Morning to talk about Barack Obama, Osama bin Laden, and a slew of other political things. And Ann wore a super expensive bird t-shirt.
The fashion industry has been a longtime supporter of Barack Obama. Anna Wintour raised over $500,000 in 2011 for the President and 22 designers are participating in the Runway to Win campaign this year. But how much influence does the industry really have on politics?
That blingtastic Michelle Obama brooch from yesterday got us thinking. What kind of cool and/or ridiculous merchandise are the other presidential candidates selling?
We should have expected that not everyone would be a fan of President Barack Obama‘s fashiony fundraiser, Runway to Win. On Tuesday, the Republican National Convention released a video characterizing the fashion show and resulting product line, organized by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, as an elitist spectacle that recession-stricken Americans can’t afford to participate in.
We already knew that Vogue contributing editor (and living fashion legend) Andre Leon Talley was not a fan of the Republican candidates for president, but what we didn’t know is the specificity with which his rage for them is peppered.
Let’s get one thing straight: Even if Mitt Romney hadn’t won the Iowa caucus and even if he wasn’t leading the polls in the ultra important South Carolina primary, his hair is so good that it could probably run for the presidency on its own viability and public presence.
Normally when magazines use the same photo for multiple covers, we raise our eyebrows in disbelief. But in the case of Time magazine, which has now used the same photo of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney twice, it’s just a really cool concept.
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.
