From Associated Press:
Former Philippine first lady Imelda Marcos, who made headlines for her vast shoe collection, is embarking on a new project a fashion line.
The 77-year-old widow of dictator Ferdinand Marcos told reporters Monday that she planned to launch “The Imelda Collection” of fashion jewelry and accessories on Nov. 18.
Marcos became notorious for her shopping trips to ritzy shops in New York while her country wallowed in poverty under martial law declared by her husband.
Not from Associated Press:
George W Bush’s Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, plans to launch her own fashion line.
And ‘Katrina shoes’, referring to when Hurricane Katrina killed thousands of people in the southern US, and Secretary of State Rice, instead of handling the scores of offers of help for the Katrina victims from foreign countries, chose to buy expensive shoes in New York City.
George W Bush’s Secretary of ‘Defence’, Donald Rumsfeld, today launched his own fashion line.
It includes body armour guaranteed not to stop any bullets.
As the catwalk broke down in the middle of the show, breaking the necks of, and killing, scores of models, Mr Rumsfeld reacted: ‘Stuff happens’; and ‘You have fashion shows with the catwalk you have, not the one you would like to have’.
