DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz made waves after appearing in a recent special for Vogue Magazine, so heavily made up (or perhaps Photoshopped) that she appeared “almost unrecognizable,” to use the words of The Hill.
Schultz stunned in a modest blue dress, gazing off into the distance from the clean, polished exterior of a government building. In another image, the woman’s characteristically tight ringlets were transformed into loose waves, her normally displeased-looking demeanor transformed into a light smile.
But how much did one of the dresses seen in the Vogue shoot cost?
New York City fashion designer Bradley Scott told TheBlaze in an email that gray dress Wasserman Schultz is seen wearing retails for $2,000 at Bergdorf Goodman.
According to Scott, the dress selection says a lot about the DNC head.
After highlighting Democratic talking points that vilify the rich– whether it’s “millionaires and billionaires” and their corporate jets, or the tax rate of those making over $250,000 being responsible for the national debt– the designer reminded that Schultz herself once said: “We must expose the stark difference between the Democrats fighting for the middle class and Republicans fighting for the elite and the ultra-wealthy.”
It does seem really unfeminist of Wasserman to subject herself to this. Isn't she perpetuating sexism in our society by going along with it? I'm just sayin'.
