Watch out, y’all: Griffin Perry has jokes.
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.
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.
