But Republicans represent the working people.
So how to explain Republican first lady Laura Bush and Republican would-be first lady Cindy McCain‘s outfits Tuesday night?
Vanity Fair wisely had its fashion department price it out. And it’s a doozy!
Laura Bush’s ensemble
Oscar de la Renta suit: $2,500
Stuart Weitzman heels: $325
Pearl stud earrings: $600–$1,500
Total: Between $3,425 and $4,325
Cindy McCain’s wardrobe
Oscar de la Renta dress: $3,000
Chanel J12 White Ceramic Watch: $4,500
Three-carat diamond earrings: $280,000
Four-strand pearl necklace: $11,000–$25,000
Shoes, designer unknown: $600
Total: Between $299,100 and $313,100.
That seems a bit elitist to me! How about you?
