Ladies of Style: Michelle Obama and Cindy McCain

The First Lady of the United States must possess certain qualities to sustain a flourishing family and nation. First, be strong and vigilant to serve as a backbone to your husband, the President. Second, possess a hunger for knowledge and a passion for humanity fed through constant study, involvement, and travel. And finally, but most importantly, possess a sense of style completely unique to oneself. Style is the one quality that reflects personality, motivation, or any feeling she wishes to portray. What do crystal brooches tell you about these women? Let’s examine the styles of Michelle Obama and Cindy McCain. Do they compare to one of the White House’s most stylish residents, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis?
As the potential First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama has ignored the traditional wardrobe of dull suits, she crosses the threshold into the world of fashion. With this election becoming one of the most historical, what designer would not want to see their garment draped on Michelle Obama? The fashion world has taken note of her sense of style. She has been named in Vanity Fair’s best- dressed list. A list that is coveted by actresses and models whose sole intent is to hold a spot in one of the most fashion forward magazines in the United States. It was the Maria Pinto designer dress worn on her campaign trail that began her journey as a fashion icon. The purple dress was coupled with a high-waist, black fashion belt. But it was when she wore Donna Ricco’s black and white floral dress that soccer moms everywhere took notice. The dress is so affordably priced yet stylish at $148, that they began selling fast. Michelle has mastered the art of accessorizing. At the Democratic National Convention she wore a simple mint green dress with an art deco pendant, a calming shade of green and blue, along with diamond stud earrings. Nina Garcia, former editor of Elle magazine and judge on hit television show Project Runway magazine thought she looked “stunning” and that “she knows how to dress for the right part.” Michelle Obama has been compared to Jackie O. Her style has a 50’s flair and her necklace of pearls is reminiscent of this style phenom.
Nina Garcia describes Cindy McCain as more of an Oscar de la Renta woman. She has a bold attitude translated by her style. With her blonde her, bold colors, diamonds bracelets, and pearl earrings, she makes her presence known. However, Vanity Fair has not taken to her sense of style as they have Michelle Obama. Following the Republican National Convention, Vanity Fair wrote an article estimating the cost of her outfit including the shoes and jewellery. Wearing her trademark four strand pearl necklace, diamond earrings, chanel watch, and a butterscotch yellow Oscar de la Renta shirt-dress, the estimated cost of her outfit was $300,000.
Cindy McCain is very particular when it comes to her look. She never has a hair out of place. If this is any indication to what kind of First Lady she is, she may be a promising pick to the White House or maybe not. You can count on her to remain classic, with very little fashion risk. But isn’t that what makes an icon? The risks hit or miss. Mostly, hit of course. The bigger the risks the bigger the rewards. . .

New attacks, turns & turn-outs for the Presidential Campaign

With Election Day two weeks away, the camps of Barack Obama
and John McCain scramble to obtain battle-ground states and
subsequently, the GOP ticket. The strategy set into play by
Barack Obama's camp last Monday was simple: Take advantage of
the current economic climate as it is one of the democratic
nominee's strengths, meaning, know the facts, highlight the
problems and present the solutions. Republican nominee John
McCain had a different agenda aimed at securing votes by
visiting southern states neglected by his campaign. With there
strategies outlined, is either candidate going to fulfill
their hopes of delivering an air tight campaign, one that is
definitive, sensible, and as sleek as a stainless steel
bracelet to become the missing link that America needs to
Obama presented his new economic plan in Ohio. Perhaps this is
a follow-up to the second Presidential debate at Belmont
University where GOP hopeful suggested a notion to treat
victims of this economic crisis like investors. Specifically,
the plan will warrant the Federal Reserve and the Treasury to
provide government at the state and municipal level similar
aid as the federal bailout to the credit market. Also, under
this policy a temporary tax credit will be granted to firms
that create jobs in the United States for the next two years,
penalty free withdrawals from IRAs and 401ks in 2008 and 2009
for up to 15 percent or $10,000, and a temporary removal on
unemployment insurance benefits. A survey conducted by CNN and the Opinion Research Corporation on Tuesday reveal that 75% of voters believe that the country is in a recession, data which one could link to Obama's 9 percent lead in CNN's most recent poll.
While Barack Obama is detailing his economic plan in Ohio,
John McCain and Sarah Palin campaign in the southern states
Virginia and North Carolina once painted as red as the strips
on the American flag men's pendant proudly displayed on the
candidates. The McCain campaign has not invested financially
in some southern states because they are traditionally
republican. This has caused a shrinking gap between the
presidential candidates. Obama has made nine visits in North
Carolina and seven in Virginia, comparing to one stop in
Virginia and two in North Carolina by John McCain. A
considerable amount of spending has been made to establish
organization and support in these states; Obama spent
substantially more than McCain on staff, commercials, and
outnumbered him in the registration of new voters. In
September alone, Obama raised $150 million. The election is
two weeks away and Obama leads by 9 percent nationally
according to CNN polls. Will McCain's last minute efforts be
enough to keep them red? Will his choice in running mate
be an obstruction or his saving grace?
Sarah Palin has become a likeable candidate for some citizens.
Upon joining the Republican ticket, Palin's popularity was
reflected in retail. The sale of her rimless glasses
substantially grew. Next, sales of the gold and crystal brooch
she wears, and her many different designs of silver earrings,
diamond studs, and crystal bracelets will be flying off store
shelves. Still, Palin is drawing bigger crowds than McCain
where she lives up to her title as attack dog and pressures
the Democratic Party.
The next two weeks will be historical and it seems that John
McCain will have to make a choice- refocus his campaign on the
economy to increase his standings in numbers or continue on
the attack and hope it resides with the American people before
ballots are in. The political climate will surely have a rise
in temperature.

Happenings at the Diesel XXX Party

This weekend Diesel rocked out globally, hosting parties in
17 cities around the world on the same day. Beginning in
Tokyo, the party traveled to Beijing, Dubai, Athens,
Amsterdam, Milan, Zurich, Munich, Paris, Stockholm,
Copenhagen, Barcelona, Oslo, Helsinki, London and Sao Paulo.
The grand finale in NYC featured MIA, N.E.R.D, Hot Chip, O
Fracas, and Chaka Kahn at Pier 3 on the Brooklyn Waterfront.
The location was undisclosed, but the Manhattan Skyline
served as a backdrop with its lights sparkling like a pair of
diamond stud earrings as those adorned by font man Pharrell
Williams. Their performances were viewed live on 3,000 sq.
ft. walls of video projection achieving a visually
stimulating experience. But Dis
With a party unmatched by any other brand, Diesel made no
scarifies when it came to transitioning the style and
creativity of their clothing into the nights theme- "Rock and
Roll Circus". This big top, old world European themed circus
featured traditional theatrical acts of fire- breathers,
sword-swallowing, trapeze artists, and cabaret dancers clad
with popular costume jewellery to evoke the passion and flair
of 18th century Europe. Yet, no other performance garnered as
much media as Sherlankin singer MIA.
Anyone can spot MIA since she possesses a style that is truly
unique. She wears a kaleidoscope of rainbow bright colors,
her fabrics of choice usually contain lycra, and her hair is
honey blonde with four inch roots. However, she pulls this
look off in a way that can be described as edgy, iconic, high
energy, paradoxical, fun, and definitely stylish, but this
weekend the star was a littler harder to spot due to her
transformed figure. With her single Paper Planes soaring to
the top of the charts, MIA surprised onlookers with her
pregnant physique. The father of her child is her fiancé Ben
Brewer. He is the lead singer of Exit and the son of Edgar
Bronfman Jr., the CEO of Warner Music Group. MIA remained
hush about the sex of her child, how far along she is and
possible baby names in her latest interviews. Earlier this
summer she cancelled her tour and rumors began of her
pregnancy. The singer explains her thoughts when she first
learned she was expecting to MTV, "When I found out I was
pregnant and 'Paper P
lanes' was in the iTunes top 10, it seemed like the whole
world was reshuffled in one week, and all my plans went out
the window. And that's the lesson ... you can't make plans,
and you can't say sh--." As MIA adds her name to the
celebrity baby boom list, she does have one piece of advice
for her fans and that's that she was engaged before she got
