Steal Their Looks: The Donald Trump Administration

Anyone else watch The Last 100 Days of Diana, the Martin Bashir follow-up special chronicling the events leading to Princess Diana’s death? No? This is a 30-year-old, played out, and quite frankly exploitative topic? Me neither. Gross! Anyway, without even watching that, we know Lady Di was a person who could bring about real change with style. She shed light on the AIDS epidemic, was almost single-handedly responsible for the worldwide ban on the use of land mines, and fundraised for countless other charities – all while occasionally dressing as if she were coding!

Of course, she was in a position of power to do so. Some might say she was simply making good on the time, money, and exposure afforded to her. What else might you do besides help other people in that situation? Well, you could do other things. Take for example the current U.S. administration. They do all sorts of other things! And not only are they serving up our wholesale demise – like Diana, they’re serving looks. Now you can, too. All the inspiration you could ever need is right here. Take a look at these rule-breakers (and then, literally, put them in jail!):

Vice President, Mike Pence

Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan

White House Chief Strategist, Steve Bannon

  1. But we COULD talk about the purple power suit that Sally Yates wore to own the senate committee she testified before, couldn’t we? Please?

  2. Casual Friday has now been replaced with Power Trash Friday. Looking forward to working in these looks!

  3. But is there a Chrome extension to replace their names with these flawless descriptions?

  4. I love that the Google logo is different for the last one
    Erin, you’re a shining star.

  5. I like to think of Steve Bannon as the cockroach guy from the first Men In Black but even more corpse-y.

  6. I steeled myself to click on this article because I was afraid I would have to look at more pictures of them and I just hate all of their faces. Thank you Erin for making this text-based instead.

  7. This is masterful because my reaction to these descriptions is indistinguishable from my reaction to the people with whom they correspond.

  8. Fantastic. But you forgot the stained dishrag that has turned crusty in the sun but still smells of mildew, and the can of cheap off-brand soda that exploded in the back of your car and wrecked your best gym shoes.

    (10 Awesome-Points to whoever guesses them first)

  9. This made me laugh so hard I coughed myself half to death (thanks, post-camp strep!).

  10. Am I the only one who thinks that Rex Tillerson would’ve been an excellent drag king name if the real Rex Tillerson hadn’t ruined it?
