Actual Debate: Should Angela Merkel Slip Into Something More Comfortable To Indicate She’s Open To Euro Bonds?

Ms. Merkel has taken Bettina Schoenbach’s advice to heart, exclusively wearing straight-cut pants and three-button, diagonal-pocketed blazers from the German designer…While that sartorial consistency may have been an asset earlier in her career, it could become a problem as Ms. Merkel pushes the unpopular message of austerity to European Union members and faces a restless electorate at home, says Robb Young, author of “Power Dressing: First Ladies, Women Politicians & Fashion.” “Her static wardrobe can be perceived as an honest reflection of her political persona—a no-nonsense, rational woman,” says Mr. Young. “But the same unwavering resolve to maintain this habitual, signature style could be a liability among certain voters aching for signs of change.” [WSJ via Heidi Moore]

    If Frau Merkel wants to send a signal to the PIIGS using fashion, she should turn all her pockets out.

  2. Pulp Friction says:

    Dominatrix outfit if she's against Euro bonds. Gimp outfit if she's for, since Germany will be taking it in the ass.

  3. InfiniteGuest says:

    Nun's habit if she wants to reinforce that austere image, Obama mask if she's ready to start spending, hoodie & flipflops if she just doesn't give a fuck.

    • Totally Sincere says:

      I vote for the flip-flops. She already looks like a 55 yr old Zuck, so may as well go for it.

  4. European Gentleman says:

    I would totally let her wrap me up from head to toe in plastic and gingerly cram a dildo up my ass.
