They are the top leaders in the world of politics; they have powerful sovereign rights; they are first ladies – the French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, the U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama, British Prime Minister Lady Samantha Cameron and so on. Robb Young recently published a book called Female Politicians and Fashion. In this book, Robb Young invited the fashion illustrator Charlotte Hoyle, the Creative Director Simon Doonan of Barneys boutique in New York, famous stylist Nicola Formichetti, Ruth Chapman from the Matches and the fashion editor Miranda Almond for the British version of Vogue magazine joint to design a series of illustrations of first ladies wearing chic clothes from 2011 spring and summer.
In the series of illustrations, first ladies or the female politicians put on chic clothes in various styles. This series of fashion illustrations has shown the fun side of these high-ranking female politicians by the illustrators. As the first ladies of this new generation, these most powerful women such as British princess, French Prime Minister Lady and even the United States first lady’s styles are not limited to boring and dull basic-colored suits any longer. As Robb Young has predicted, if these female politicians can choose chic and fashionable styles, this would not only shorten the distance between them and ordinary people but also make them see more genial. Now, let's take a look at these fashion illustrations of these fabulous women politicians.
