Wait...Hillary Clinton is a woman? A recent Washington Post article discusses Hillary Clinton's cleavage and her fashion history. I know it shouldn't matter at all in a presidential candidate, but...I'm really glad a woman is running simply because the wardrobe of a female presidential candidate is so much more fun to think about. (Side note: If anybody can find a picture of Hillary in the Donna Karan dress they talk about in the article, I'll be forever indebted to you. I've spent a good chunk of time looking and can't find it anywhere.)
And let's recall that snippet about her coral jacket on Monday: Edwards and Obama Split on Clinton's Jacket. That was pretty much a mistake on Edwards' part, he sounded sexist. However, I do admire him for at least trying to answer the question that most of the other debaters passed on with varying amounts of grace. However, the jacket was not the right target to go after, it wasn't funny enough to be taken as a joke, regardless of intent.
Men, of course, aren't completely immune to the fashion scrutiny. There's a fabulous article in the Wall Street Journal about Pulling Off the Obama Look. I happen to love this open-collar-no-tie look. With it Obama looks like he's ready for action and doesn't take himself too seriously. Plus it's kind of hot. Guys take note (and I've discussed this with numerous girls and most agree with me): One of the absolute hottest ways a guy can be dressed is the dressed-up, dressed-down look. A guy in a dress shirt with the sleeves rolled up, or in a suit but barefoot, or with a tie untied or loosened or missing....yum.
