START

Politics and fashion have always gone hand-in-hand, especially among the women in and around the White House. “Even the decision not to care about fashion is a political statement,” fashion historian Dr. Jonathan Square once said. Not excluded from the far-ranging influence of political figures are the clothes that they wear, whether campaigning, giving speeches, debating, or even on vacation.
