Vice News asks fashion legend André Leon Talley (who appears to be wearing a horse blanket nonchalantly draped over a burgundy tunic) what he thinks about Paul Manafort‘s VERY EXPENSIVE but VERY UGLY wardrobe. He does NOT disappoint.
A few choice reads:
“He has taken lavish luxury and gangster greed to the highest level”
“These are not clothes one would aspire to”
“The ostrich baseball jacket, where do you wear that if you are Paul Manafort? Where do you go? Lunch at the Country Club? Republican strategy meetings on Sunday morning?… Maybe when you are hobnobbing with Russian oligarchs on the weekends you have to wear ostrich or python for the president, I don’t know.”
“If Tom Wolfe were alive today he’d be writing a novel about Paul Manfort. This s Bonfire of the Vanities 2018.
Dolly Parton once said, “It takes a lot of money to look this cheap,” but even that doesn’t quite do Paul Manafort’s menswear purchases justice. So we got fashion legend André Leon Talley (@OfficialALT) to come by and critique Manafort’s style.
