We have to discuss Sarah Palin‘s getup in Cleveland, Missouri on Friday night. She was campaigning for Republican Sarah Steelman, who’s in the running for a seat in the Senate. Palin’s outfit consisted of a Superman t-shirt, black capris, black strappy wedges, oversized sunglasses, and a blingy bracelet. So… where do we begin?
Watch out, y’all: Griffin Perry has jokes.
They say you should dress for the job you want, and not for the job you have. So will a garment as much maligned as the sweater vest really help former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum win today’s Iowa caucus and eventually become president? Apparently the answer is yes.
GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman has spent most of the campaign on the back burner. But for his daughters, all of whom are regulation hotties and pretty damn well versed on his talking points, that is not the case. They proved that today in an interview with MSNBC‘s Martin Bashir, where in addition to supporting their father’s policy plans and debate performance, they wore some of the reddest red that ever was.
They say you should dress for the job you want, and it follows that you should accessorize and have an analogous beauty routine for it, too. If that’s the case, we don’t think Michele Bachmann really wants to be president.
Here’s the thing: There are as many different ways to be a fashion person as there are people in fashion, which sometimes means that Fashion Week can look a lot like convening the League of Nations. Case in point: meat-eating, death row executing, no-apologizing Republican Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, who wants to be your next president, showed up and partied with models during New York Fashion Week.
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.
So far we’ve stayed away from the Target campaign donation story because we found it a little difficult to reconcile how much we love all of the well-priced items we’ve bought there with the fact that the store’s corporate leaders are really just the worst kind of people. But then we realized that this isn’t about clothes. It’s about right and wrong. And now our Mossimo gloves are off.
