Sophie Grégoire Trudeau Does No Wrong Accepting Designer Gifts

A citizen's advocacy group has recently called Sophie Grégoire Trudeau out for accepting gifts and loans of clothing from Canadian fashion labels, deeming her "for sale" for daring to wear support for our country's industry on her sleeve. I can see how gifts and loans can make for some bad optics, even if the role of prime minister's wife has little real political oomph behind it. However, in a world where few powerful individuals direct their influence toward social good like Grégoire Trudeau does, Democracy Watch's threadbare argument seems to be more about populist-pleasing celebrity shaming than hypothetical conflicts of interests.

I am almost sure that Mrs. Trump is not a robot, unlike the women in the famous novel. I say this despite her sculpted face and the generally 1950s Playboy Bunny appearance that seems to defy human aging. I am still sure that beneath the coaching and stilted speeches, she is a human being.

I think it's important that we don't cling to the rules our mothers taught us "just because that's the way it's always been done." If your legs look better with hose, wear hose. If you find that brown and black is not a good combination for your skin tone, then don't wear it. Don't be a slave to fashion rules -- old or new.
