Politician’s wives are becoming nearly as famous as their other halves across the fashion world. The dowdy outfits donned by these supportive female figures have been binned and replaced by must-have wardrobe labels such as Erdem (a favourite of Sarah Brown) Calvin Klein (as worn by Michelle Obama) and even Marks and Spencer (who can forget Samantha Cameron’s polka dot dress).
And as they become more and more popular, the media world is alight with news of Samantha Cameron’s pregnancy, the fashion spotlight on these women becomes bigger.
Rarely a day goes by without some comment about Michelle Obama’s latest outfit hitting the news wires and Sarah Brown has thrown herself into the fashion world, becoming an iconic figure of many high profile events. She jointly opened London Fashion Week this year (we were there to see it and we have to admit her speech was inspiring) appeared at the Elle Style awards and also held a reception for the Cosmopolitan Women Of The Year at Downing Street.
However, although she may not be fashion forward Mrs Clegg knows exactly how to dress. She’s appeared alongside the MP on various occasions in stylish frocks, and even donned the braces look for one event, which we think is slightly daring but works incredibly well.
With four stylish women who all do a great job of promoting fashion and keeping in with political values we’re a little bit torn as to who to award the fashion crown to.
So once again we’ve decided to leave it to you. View the gallery below and then vote in the ballot box to tell us who you think is the most stylish. And if there’s anything else you want to say, tell us by leaving your comments in the box below.
