Change You Can Bedazzle
It started before we even arrived in Washington D.C. The sun streaming through the windows of Philadelphia’s 30th Street Station glinted off the backs of two journalists whose custom blacks blazers bore portraits of the president-elect comprised entirely from shiny red, white, and silver studs. At Friday’s BET Honors, one audience member wore Obama’s likeness on a crystal-laden tee. And every- where street vendors are selling out of hats, shirts, and bags bearing more rhinestones than a Dallas prom queen. Michelle Obama worked a subtle sparkle with a touch of beading on her black silk Narciso Rodriguez blouse, but tomorrow if she, say, rocks her hubby’s crystallized face on a ball gown and it will be official: This Presidential Inauguration has been brought to you by studs, Swarovski, and the Bedazzler.
