Bachmann wins in white

As you probably know by now, Michele Bachmann won the Iowa straw poll this weekend. She wore a white suit:

This suit returns to her achromatic theme of campaign dressing, and although it's not as business-like as the black and gray we've seen in her campaign announcement or the debates, it's still a far cry from the soft sweater sets of last year. The jacket is shaped and darted, but noticeably loose on her body, a clear attempt to avoid too much body-consciousness in her clothes. Although the long nails point back towards that overt femininity, it's still notable that her look is less girly-girl than it used to be.
