Fashion Forward: Presidential Style
George W. and John Kerry aren't the only ones being a little image conscience this time of year. The wives and daughters of the candidates are also making a statement... A fashion statement. Tonight, the nighttime's Shireen Sandoval casts her vote for best dressed on the campaign trail.
(WSVN) -- John...George...Democrat...Republican...Blue... Red...Still can't decide who to vote for?
Well, behind every great man, there's some stylish not to mention pretty smart women.
When it comes to voting for most prim and proper, it's hard to beat Laura Bush.
Clad in cool blue hues and ruby red lips, she's the first lady who makes an appearance that's second to none.
Sandi Powers, Ocean Drive Magazine Fashion Director: "She always has her hair just so in place, she wears conservative suites with a splash of color."
That's not just conservative...That's compassionate conservative.
Now, if you want something a little more bold... Theresa Heinz Kerry speaks her mind loud and clear and her outfits follow suite.
Sandi: "She breaks all the rules, she wears pants, she doesn't really care."
But for those of you, who are into rockin the vote, take your pick between the Bush twins and the Kerry sisters.
Now, you know these girls must be hip when they appear at the MTV awards... Not to mention gracing the pages of Vogue and Elle.
Sandi: "Alexendra and Vanessa are really new to this. They are surprisingly very conservative in the way they dress."
Sandi: "The Bush twins did a little bit better. You can see that Barbara is wearing a tweed jacket and tweed is really in for fall."
Talk about an absentee ballot. Who can forget when Vanessa Kerry's dress was virtually absent at the Cannes Film Festival.
Sandi: "It really was an embarrassing thing for her because she certainly did not intend to show off her body, but that's what happened, so I am sure she is not going to make that mistake again."
But remember, style isn't just clothes, it's class. And we guarantee one thing you won't see again -- a Bush daughter sticking out her tongue at the media.
Sandi: "They have learned from their mistakes."
So ladies, now that you've got the facts on what really matters, make sure you choose who you feel best represents your look on November 2nd.
