This photo appeared in the January edition of Vogue, which featured Meryl Streep on its cover. In addition to Streep’s acting credentials, the primary article focused on the actress’s passion for the campaign to open a National Women’s History Museum on the Mall. The above photo includes Streep with some other prominent supporters of this initiative. From left: Museum President and CEO Joan Wages, Madeleine Albright, Sen. Susan Collins, Sen. Barbara Mikulski, Barbara Bush, Rep. Carolyn Maloney, Patricia Nixon Cox, Maya Angelou and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton.
How can Sen. Mikulski (the one in blue) be surrounded by so many of her well-dressed colleagues and not think, “Maybe I should change my outfit up a bit?” Yeah, yeah, I know. She’s a Senator, not a fashion model. But, as a Senator, I think she can afford more than 3 outfits and have at least one look good. Hell, when is the next time she’s going to be photographed in Vogue? That seems to be reason enough to grab a new outfit.
