Michele Bachmann a Style Icon?
Experts Say They Love Her Simple Style
Michele Bachmann lost her presidency campaign, but she’s winning in the fashion department according to style experts.
The experts weighed in and have declared Bachmann a bon-a-fide fashionista saying “Bachmann raised the bar for all women politicians with a classic, feminine style — without letting her clothes become the story,” as the Washington Post explains it.
“She did extraordinarily well,” said Christina Logothetis, a D.C. image consultant who writes the Style of Politics blog. “She transformed her look to remove her wardrobe from the conversation.”
The Washington Post described Bachmann’s style as such:
A remarkable feat, really: People obsessed over Hillary Clinton’s pantsuits and Sarah Palin’s open-toed shoes. Not so much with Bachmann, who created a signature look with done-but-not-too-done hair and makeup and clothes that were flattering but never flirty.
Simple goes a long way.
Style consultant Alison Lukes told the Post,“She was able to convey power without the age-old power suit. She avoided being flashy but also avoided being boring or dowdy.”
Who do you think would win in a fashion showdown: Bachmann or First Lady Obama?
