She used to be such a sharp dresser. Her look was classic with a trendy youthfulness. I’m guessing she was making those good decisions.
Then came that biker-babe-from-the-black-lagoon dress on election eve. It was a fashion don’t.
As for the swearing-in outfit, I have mixed emotions. It looked a little fussy and over the top, what with the rhinestone embellishments, ribbon bow, beading, lace, AND olive gloves. As Michael Kors on Project Runway would say: “Edit! Edit!” In photographs the unique lemongrass color looked lovely amid a sea of greys and primary colors. However, one of the talking heads on TV said she looked like a Solid Gold Dancer and now I can’t get that image out of my head.
The inaugural gown: My first reaction was disappointment. It was so prom-y looking. Where is your wrist corsage? Plus she looked like she was having a devil of a time managing that train. I withheld judgment, thinking the dress probably looked better in person. The next day, bloggers went nuts. “A curtain” … “mummy bandages”… “cavewoman outfit” … “did she roll in cotton balls?” … “a bride” … “chenille bedspread.”
