Via Newsbusters, Lawrence ‘Larry’ O’Donnell, the late night blowhard on
MSNBC MSDNC, spent five minutes last night bashing Ann Romney for wearing a $990 shirt on live TV.
Larry had the gall to say:
“It was instantly recognized by the fashion cognizanti as the Reed Audubon silk shirt, part of the Reid Krakoff 2012 spring/summer collection, and the shirt is available to anyone for a mere $990.”
“Yet another example of how out of touch the Romney family can be with how 99 percent of Americans live.”
Mrs. Obama has worn lavish things as well on TV Larry, where’s your outrage about that?
The first closet has increasingly become a subject of interest since Michelle Obama swept fashionably into the White House in her Jason Wu ball gown.
Yesterday, Ann Romney’s clothes stole the spotlight as she wore a fashionable top on Tuesday for an appearance with her husband on CBS “This Morning.” Politico reported that the Reed Krakoff shirt would “cost you a pretty penny,” at $990.
But Mrs. Romney will need to step up her fashion game if she wants to fill the shoes of Mrs. Obama.
In March, the first lady visited her British counterpart Samantha Cameron wearing a L’Wren Scott sweater in a trendy bright yellow hue. The embellished cardigan costs $2,720.
Obama, widely regarded as a fashion icon, likes the brand so much that she wore a peach cardigan from the same line last week during the Take Your Child to Work Day festivities.
The next day, she wore another sweater from L’Wren Scott, this one white with red trim from the Spring 2011 ready to wear collection, for a visit to Fort Stewart with the president.
This is all part of the DNC’s strategy which is to create distractions for Mitt Romney to deal with rather than talk about the issues real Americans want to discuss which is jobs and the economy.
