i took a class at Polimoda called fashion trends. we basically produced 3 or 4 powerpoint presentations on random trends - one of them being "Inspiring Women". my team and i ended up presenting Dita Von Teese but I had pitched them Rosario Murillo. the other teams presented Jackie O, Carla Bruni, and well I can't remember the rest. point is, we had to present to the class, women who have influenced fashion in their personal and work life as well affecting others along the way. therefore, that is why i pitched Rosario Murillo. she's eclectic, bold, daring, and doesn't give a flying f*ck what you think of her stacked rings and bracelets and 400 different dresses (apparently she never wears the same outfit twice).
years ago, i read an article in Magazine for La Prensa Nicaragua about her life and in it of course, there were pictures of her earlier years and i was definitely impressed. she rocked print pants, chunky accessories, the cat eye eye makeup, flat hipster boots, and the pixie cut! and to prove it, i found this picture on Nicaragua del Recuerdo, album Personajes.
Murillo continues to prove she will not ever be what you consider 'normal' and your typical first lady.
