White House fashion police -- as blind as Lady Justice
Wondering who dressed Sonia Sotomayor during her confirmation process? Blame the White House.
In a speech at her 30-year Yale Law School reunion Saturday, the newest Supreme Court justice shared the inside scoop on her nomination -- including the vetting by the fashion police in the White House. According to the New Haven Register, Sotomayor told her fellow alums that officials asked her to bring five suits for the "acceptance ceremony" (unclear if it was the nomination announcement or the swearing-in) and picked one for her to wear.
Really? Administration experts handpicked those utterly unremarkable duds? Heck, we could have done that. Court reps referred us to the White House; a press aide there quipped "We think the justice looks great in a black robe" -- but never explained why they messed with her wardrobe.
