Washington, October 4 (ANI): U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin have emerged as new fashion icons, with models at Paris Fashion Week sporting their styles.
Yves Saint Laurent’’s spring-summer show on Thursday saw designer Stefano Pilati send models down the runway with a variation of Palin’’s signature beehive-with-bangs hairdo.
Obama also inspired a line of dresses, reports Fox News.
A model even wore a short frock featuring a portrait of the Democratic presidential candidate.
French designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajacs creation was seen during a presentation of his spring-summer 2009 ready-to-wear collection.
Palins influence was so much on the models that manufacturers reported an increase in demand for her red Naughty Monkey peeptoe heels, her eyeglasses and even her makeup.
Obamas wife Michelle has also won fashion raves, drawing comparisons to style icon Jacqueline Kennedy with her classic dresses, pearls and flipped-up hairstyles.
Republican presidential candidate John McCain and Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden have yet to spark any trends. (ANI)
