Gosh, we just can't get enough of this story. Cathy Horyn of the Times weighs in with this:
responsibility for something as basic as her own clothing. Others are
choosing it, others are buying it and others are explaining it.
Here's from WWD:
her nearly two-year tenure as the governor of Alaska, she showed an
affinity for fitted blazers, the occasional twinset, and the requisite
fur-hooded winter jacket. For some photo-ops, she even went casual,
donning T-shirts, while her inauguration dress — a magenta confection with long sleeves — had a distinctly “Dynasty”-esque look.
The WWD article is long and fairly interesting and worth a look if you are interested in this whole story. WWD also has a great slideshow, worth checking out. (Also, love those Danskos in the before shot! Glamorous, no, but they sure are comfortable.)
