Sarah Palin, on the other hand, used fashion to convey pretty, not power, said Givhan. If Palin had spent the $150,000 at Wal-Mart rather than at Neiman Marcus and Saks, Givhan suggested, perhaps people wouldnt have been so appalled at the cost of her wardrobe. But the high-end designs and expensive jewelry were out of touch with her Joe Six Pack audience. Additionally, Palins wardrobe, while expensive, wasnt particularly noteworthy: Nothing about her clothing choices crafted an image of power.

Don't think Michelle's in any danger of being accused of that. More likely to be accused of trying to play linebacker in a table cloth.

Pretty, powerful, not riding hubby's coat tails and smarter than this poor guy ever dreamed of. Givhan is clueless.
