Style Politics: Tim Gunn on Cindy McCain
Usually I'm against making any political statements, however when it comes to stylish First Wives elect, exceptions are enabled. Tim Gunn told Time he loves Michelle Obama's style but is far less enthused with Cindy McCain's. (His exact words were, "Cindy McCain looks like someone has twisted her ponytail into a knot and tried to give her a face-lift.") When later asked by New York editors, he reassured his previous statement by saying "There is no contest!! I mean, Michelle really epitomizes American style, and she's not afraid to show her shape, she's not afraid to show her sexiness without being the least bit inappropriate. And Cindy with her suits and she's all buttoned up, she's just soooo — she just looks like she's duct-taped! There is just something about her, and in a way it's a metaphor about who she is!" An observant and mostly true takeaway, hopefully he takes a little more into consideration before filling out his ballot.
