There is no doubt that a sari is a beautiful dress and it has survived centuries of style changes in India. We have also seen many Hollywood stars in saris in recent months. Katherine Heigl wore a sari in 27 Dresses movie. Ashley Judd also wore a saree. And I must confess that Posh Spice looks attractive in this ensemble.
I have discussed previously the trend to let your bra show through your blouse (or alternatively wear bra as a top) and that is why I was thrilled that Mena Suvari chose to wear her black lace bra as if it were part of her dress, rather than choose a strapless bra or go braless. It may look a bit naughty, but I think it works. And this trend of bra peeking is catching on.
What I want to emphasize is that looking like Sarah Palin costs a lot of money. According to some information leaking out from the campaign, she has shopped at luxury stores like Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Barneys New York, Bloomingdales, and Atelier. Obviously she is not a hockey mom and that is why real hockey moms hate her since she lives a luxurious lifestyle that most women only see in movies.
The total expenditure adds up to approximately $150,000. This includes as much as $400 per day on makeup alone paid to celebrity make-up artist Amy Strozzi, who was nominated for an Emmy Award for her work as head of makeup team on "So You Think You Can Dance."
Like a Hollywood celebrity (and unlike most politicians and business executives), Gov. Palin has been noticed to be almost always impeccably dressed, sometimes changing jackets, high heels and hairstyles twice or three times a day. Her excellent style has sparked a craze among her fans and many of them have been buying her preferred Kazuo Kawasaki 704 Duo eyeglasses and Naughty Monkey heels (also a favorite of Paris Hilton).
Fashion experts have also noted that to keep looking fresh at all times despite her busy schedule, Governor Palin has been wearing particularly heavy blush. To further enhance her appeal she has worked Priscilla Shanks, a voice coach.
Obviously, she is not alone in spending obscene amounts of money on looks. Senator John McCain uses American Idol makeup artist Tifanie White and pays her thousands of dollars. His wife Cindy McCain is also one of the most well dressed women and reportedly spent over $300,000 on her outfit.
Previously I wrote about how Senator John McCain were soulmates, not just running mates. There's was love at first sight and even if they cannot consummate their relationship (both of them are married but McCain is reported to have cheated with Amy Lumet and Vicki Iseman while Sarah Palin also had an extramarital affair), it is very clear from the collection of these photos that they have used every opportunity to make out in public.
