Let ladies of politics style their power
There's no denying that fashion gets women noticed - but if that's the case, let it be for the right reasons

Last week brought the seminal moments of this murky chapter in American politics; a third and final antagonistic and sometimes brutal presidential debate, the Obamas hosting their final state dinner and Donald Trump managing a full seven days without a misogynistic, sexually explicit gaffe.
If that wasn't enough, US Vogue, for the first time in its history, endorsed a presidential candidate by announcing its support for Mrs Clinton. While previous editors have been publicly supportive of politicians and current editor Anna Wintour has been a long-time supporter of Hillary, it's the first time the magazine has spoken in a unified voice in favour of one candidate.
As editor of US Vogue and artistic director of Conde Nast, Wintour's significance in modern popular culture is immeasurable; those foolish enough to cast her aside as simply a denizen of Planet Fashion are probably unaware that she has at the very least dictated what they are wearing today.
