Lynne Cheney's scarf on Wolf Blitzer's show.
I give a lot of leeway to people of modest means when it comes to fashion choices. But when someone has money, sometimes you have to go, huh? Lynne Cheney's hanky draped over her shoulders like a yoke was just too distracting. She was obviously wearing a standard black shirt or dress, and uses scarfs, probably expensive scarfs, to make it look like her wardrobe is bigger than it actually is. And I have to say, huh? Maybe I've been watching Project Runway too long but I wanted to give her the proverbial Auf handshake and hug. I mean, the bitch's husband just scored a billion dollar coup for Halliburton and will be rewarded in the afterlife of public service for his treasonous decisions. You'd think she wouldn't have to play the game that the rest of us play to use accessories to simulate a larger wardrobe than we actually own. In her case, the way she draped that scarf around her shoulders in way to simulate a full dress made her look like a fowl on a tight budget, "cheap, cheap, cheap."

Seriously. Look at the replay and tell me if she didn't conscientiously put that scarf on her shoulders, knowing that it would fill the camera and give the appearance of a complete dress.

2. what is the problem? I happen to like the look of scarfs on women. So
she wears scarfs.

It is her attitude that sucks for me.

6. Look at the picture, and tell me that's a good fashion style?
Edited on Sat Oct-28-06 09:34 AM by The Backlash Cometh
Rolling it in some artsy fartsy way and tying it in a clever way is one thing, but if all you women think that draping it over your shoulders like a matronly shawl is a good idea, fuggetaboutit.

9. That's my vote.
She & her putrid husband have more money than anyone could spend in 10 lifetimes. They can afford anything she wants, but her taste is so lousy that's what she gets.

7. Her wardrobe is the least of my concerns.
Why is it that we rarely hear anyone say, "The tie the president wearing was just too distracting," or "He should use accessories to simulate a larger wardrobe." :shrug:

11. Men got a free pass when they came up with a suit.
Women dance with the devil, when it come to fashion. Most love it, most want it, so deal with the criticism.

21. Most women as in, "Not me."
I belong to the dungaree brigade. As I said in my original post, maybe I've been watching too much Project Runway.

trying to simulate a carved pumpkin?

She looked like a human carved pumpkin.

12. well....
She probably is *far* too busy persecuting college professors to spend a lot of time fussing over her clothes.

Ever since Pat Nixon's "Republican cloth coat" these GOP women make themselves out to be dumpy 'n frumpy to hide their extravagent wealth - although you can bet her scarf probably cost what many of us make in a month.

16. I thought the same thing. A $250 silk scarf to drape a $40.00
Ross dress-for-less clearance rack, black dress.

14. Really, who cares what she wears? She's a lying SOS and . . .
a Bush-Cheney enabler, which makes her an enemy of the people as far as I'm concerned.

17. Personally I think she
would look absolutely stunning in orange or maybe a black and white stripe with some ankle cuffs for accent.

18. It may not have even been her scarf.
The people at the station may have had to scramble to find something to liven up an all-black outfit.

22. That's my point, because that's exactly how it looked.
People made fun of Hillary's headbands, so this is fair game.

33. Those decorative headbands were made popular in the late 80s
Margaret Tutweiler, the former State Department press spokesman, used to wear them all the time.

So, if the far right wanted to make fun of Mrs. Clinton's headbands, they're only making fun of themselves.

Guess I should thank them for saving us the trouble!

24. Not surprisingly, that outfit was straight out of the mid-1980s
Two of the fashion trends twenty years ago were blouses with lace shawl collars, and (2) scarves draped over suit blazers. Both of those looks went out when Bush 41 took office.

Lynne Cheney's fashion sense is about as sharp as her integrity.

wearing a leisure suit.

31. LOL! Yeah, that get-up she adorned herself with went out with mullets, spiked hairdos,
the "Flashdance" sweats wardrobe, and Duran Duran.

No doubt, she wore leisure suits in the 1970s, when it was "cool".

26. Does anyone sense any similarities between Lynn Cheney and
Barbara Bush (gram-ma-ma)? Its maybe the frumpy look or the bitchy attitude toward others.

28. I sure did, and if you've worked with them, as I have, every last one of them
dresses that way. No fashion sense whatsoever, other than dowdy, frumpish, or preppy. That's all they know.

The first person I thought of while watching Mrs. Cheney on CNN yesterday was the late Martha Mitchell. She looked and sounded exactly like the wife of the former Attorney General in the Nixon Administration.

30. It looked like a Hermes scarf.
They ARE very expensive. On average....$300 and up price tag.

32. You're absolutely right - it WAS a Hermes scarf
Draped over a pantsuit she probably picked up at Marshall's for fifty percent off. ;)

35. Wonder which Hermes Scarf? My favorite is my "Carpe Diem" one...another is the "Napoleon" one...or
the ones of the "Sun King" or of the "Cherokee Indian"....

I ask because when I was in Corporate America, I wore Hermes Scarfs like when I was picking out my pair of stockings or if someone was picking out their underwear. It literally was a basic part of my outfit, but also to make a statement.

I have to say that I love Hermes scarfs and they are beautiful, so its just a crying shame that an evil bitch like Lynne Cheney has to wear one and make it look so ugly. I personally don't think that Hermes scarfs look unattractive in the way she was wearing it. She just is plain ugly and nothing beautiful near her can compensate. But I'm curious which scarf she chose, because its usually got a motif and message....

:hi:

38. I'm not opposed to scarves. But I am opposed to the way she
wore it. It draped her collar and shoulders like a shawl and just looked like she was trying to fool the camera, (which really only shoots from the breast up in that kind of interview format) into thinking she had the whole get up. If she had folded it and tied it, it probably wouldn't have been so forced-looking.

Then, again, she may have laid it out on her shoulders on purpose to show-off her $300.00 Hermes scarf, but then that says something about her, doesn't it? Very few people in America would have recognized it for what it was.

39. I have no clue which one. I don't know them that well. It was a classic Hermes design...
Like ribbons, acanthus leaves and keys....you know what I mean. That's why I knew what it was. They are beautiful scarves and you're right, nothing beautiful near her can compensate for her inner and outer ugliness. :(

40. I don't give a rat's pancreas about her wardrobe. I care about her black SOUL.
Edited on Sun Oct-29-06 08:55 AM by gauguin57
I care about the peril her husband and his ilk are putting this country in. I care about the lies about the war, the secret divvying up of the Iraqi oil fields with an energy task force cabal -- then refusing to tell the public ANYTHING about it. I care about the unprecedented secrecy of Lynne's husband's office. I care about his gleeful support of torture.

I care about the hypocrisy of a woman who makes money off a lesbian romance novel and then pretends to get all huffy and insulting when someone points out that she and her husband have a gay daughter whose sexual orientation they accept.

I care, in short, about her being Mrs. Prince of Effing Darkness (while she acts all HOLIER THAN THOU all the time) ... not about her scarves.
