Sophie's Choice

Sophie's Choice

Much has been written about the Trudeau family sartorial choices during their India trip. How ill at ease Sophie Gregoire looked was striking. Clearly she was not able to dress Inside-Out.

But is she even allowed to? Her dedication to Canadian designers is amazing. But don't you sense a disconnect between who she seems to be (a young, fun, vibrant woman) and what she’s wearing (classic, borderline austere and boring)?

Is it the plight of female public figures? Do their stylists strip them of their personality to conform to certain fashion standards? Wearing one’s style takes courage. It’s already tough enough for us every day women to resist the pressure of our environment (think office, girlfriends’ circle or mother in law expectations).  How does one stay true to oneself when your every move is analysed and criticised?

Go for it Sophie, you looked fab in that baby blue Leinad Beaudet dress (although I would have chosen a slightly different shape for you).

I saw the dress at TFW when I met the designer a couple of weeks ago - the fabric is stunning.
