Nope, we haven’t moved on from Mad Men-esque gender roles. Pretty women on successful hubbies’ arms.
Yesterday OK magazine the Guardian ran a ‘Leaders’ wives’ photograph, and online you can find this G20 Leaders’ Wives gallery.
“What is everyone wearing? Who gets to go to the Ladies with Michelle Obama? What are the G20 spouses doing while the leaders are tied up in meetings about the economy?”
My emphasis. Somehow I don’t think the suits were what interested them.
“Some of the G20 leaders’ wives also attended a women’s dinner in New York. Wendy Murdoch, Sarah Brown, Queen Rania of Jordan, Nicole Kidman, Liya Kebede and Indra Nooyi went to the Important Dinner for Women 4”.
Enjoy folks! I’m going out with my camera into Brighton to see if I can spot Sarah Brown’s new shoes!!
