Vanity Fair magazine has included Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake on its list of the 10 best-dressed mayors in the world.
Vanity Fair magazine – chronicler of what is fashionable, trendy and hot among urban movers and shakers – included Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake in its recent list of the top 10 best-dressed mayors in the world.
“Baltimore’s chief bureaucrat looks so on point for every occasion that she should write a style guide for the modern woman in politics,” Vanity Fair raves of the mayor. “Tasteful but feminine dress for a corporate party? Check. Skinny jeans and heels (yes, heels!) at her city’s Pride Parade? Check. Well-tailored jackets and a hairdo that’s far from dowdy? Check, and check.”
Rawlings-Blake told The Baltimore Sun – which has noted her perfect makeup, along with bold jewelry choices when she appears on the Sunday talk shows -- she appreciated the honor since she’s a fashion bargain hunter.
"I take a lot of pride in my appearance as a representative of the city of Baltimore, a city with world-class fashion talent and a rich cultural history,” the mayor told the Sun. “And as a serious bargain hunter 'frugalista,' I'm always looking for new ways to step up my game."
