Only in Utah does the distinction melt into a Walmart clearance rack. Yeah, I know it’s mean.

Bag’s Take-Away:
Ann Romney wears a $1000 T-shirt to tell the world her hubby is a regular guy just like them!
Certainly, a lot was made four years ago about Michelle Obama as the first dresser, and her astute sense of how to present herself in times of economic distress. That doesn’t mean that she hasn’t been opulent, too. It does mean, however, that she and the President have been sensitive, and smart, about symbolism and setting a tone. 
Conversely, given the impression Mitt is just a little out of touch with the 99%, the Romney campaign has had a marvelous opportunity over the past few weeks to help refashion itself, creating more dimensionality and humanity around Ann Romney, wife and mother. The opportunity has been that much more opportune given the chance to also ground Mitt’s aside in Detroit about how many Cadillacs Ann happens to own. 
All these factors made this scene from CBS‘s This Morning, otherwise petty, more than just chicken feed. 
Stated bluntly: if you use your wife to humanize you and to help relate to the average American, you might want to remind her before sitting down for coffee with the nation NOT to wear her $990 Madison Avenue,  Reed Krakoff-designed t-shirt, one so colorfully missing from the closets of 99% of your countrymen (or women). Since this is a tenet of Campaigning 101, it takes very little movement to conclude that the Romneys, like birds of a feather, just don’t get it.

Obama and Cameron as Cary Grants. The odd thing about this atmospheric photo is the presence of the leader of the free world out of focus with his back to the camera but still cool. How does he do that?

Why I love Damon Winter’s bird’s eye view photo of Stella McCartney at work:

When it’s good, work (and life) is like a dance.

The eye loves symmetry.

We’re all connected.

An asana I haven’t seen before.

Especially these days, we all want to think we can do more than one thing at a time.



via NYT Magazine slideshow: Stella McCartney at Work

(photo: Damon Winter/The New York Times caption: While reporting for the article, Horyn attended several design meetings with McCartney and her close-knit team and had the impression they were, most of the time, “finishing one another’s sentences.” McCartney, with her team in London, preparing her fall 2012 collection.)
