Expensive Wardrobe Goes Against McCain-Palin Story Line
Post fashion editor Robin Givhan weighs in online today on the contretemps over the Republican National Committee's expenditures on Sarah Palin's wardrobe (for a photo gallery on Palin's new outfits, click here). Givhan writes:
If politicos weren't so snide and dismissive of fashionistas, the McCain-Palin campaign wouldn't be in the awkward position of having to explain the $150,000 tab for shopping trips, hairstyling and beauty makeovers for Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.
How do you sell someone as a no-frills hockey mom who sold the state plane, fired the official cook and turned down travel per diems for her family and then try to explain wardrobing her in clothes from Neiman Marcus -- a store occasionally referred to by aggrieved, frugal shoppers as Needless Markup? How do you, in barely two months, lavish her with fashion swag worthy of a starlet and valued at more than her annual governor's salary of $125,000?
