Paul Ryan Page 1
It was quite a disappointing night for the Republicans. Not only did Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan lose the election, but Ryan continued to wear oversized suits and untailored pants. At least his wife Janna looked nice!
Last night in Danville, Kentucky, Vice President Joe Biden and Macho, Macho Man Paul Ryan wore their sparring suits and faced off in the Vice Presidential debate. Apart from the event itself, there was the usual faux-friendly face time between the candidates and their families, which gave us the opportunity to check out the ensembles of wives Jill Biden and Janna Ryan, as well cast some judgment on the tailoring choices made by the boys.
Paul Ryan clearly wants everyone to know that, underneath all those oversized blazers and button-downs sans neckties, he has a seriously jacked up bod. How exactly do we know this? In addition to the paparazzi-lensed pics of a shirtless Ryan taken six years ago (pre-P90x workout regimen), the Vice-Presidential candidate did an athletic-themed and totally hilarious photoshoot for Time magazine in 2011, when he was in the running for Person of the Year.
Is it too late for Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan to quit his day job and sign up for season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race? Because we think he’d be a HIT.
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?
Whatever your political persuasion, there’s no doubting that there are style stars on both sides of America’s great political divide. And for Republicans in offices both large and small, sharply tailored, classic clothing imbued with modern styling is what makes the difference between those who stand out and those who blend in. Herein, ten members of the Grand Old Party who make dressing well as important as toeing the party line.
