Is Samantha Cameron The New Michelle Obama?
With Samantha Cameron’s arrival on the scene, it looks like political fashion is a style subject that’s going to remain relevant for years to come. The wife of new British Prime Minister David Cameron is in the debut stages of becoming a full-on fashion obsession who will likely join the design dialogue already put in place by Michelle Obama and Carla Bruni. In fact, some reckon that “Sam Cam” might even become more relevant, thanks to already being part of the fashion industry — she’s the creative director for Smythson, a luxury leather accessories brand. Samantha’s style aesthetics, like MObama’s, speak to the average consumer in a way that’s fairly new for First Ladies. She dresses modestly, but with ladylike charm, sometimes appearing in jeans (we’re loving that gray T-shirt/jeans combo because it’s so classic and flawless). WWD points out some details about Cameron, each of which makes us smile. For starters, her mode of transportation “until recently was zooming around London on a silver Piaggio scooter,” (could you ask for a cooler mom?), she “has a little dolphin tattoo on the inside of her right ankle,” (so awesome to know even seemingly perfect politico ladies make bad mid-20s decisions!) and prefers to sport a “glossy black pedicure” (we’re so on that right now). Stay tuned for more Samantha Cameron style stories, as there are sure to be plenty. [WWD]
