Micheline: Still Fabulous

Switzerland's girl president/foreign minister is holding up well! She's softened her hairdo a lot, so it's a lot less helmet-like and the dye-job is less radical. And the fitted pea-coat and turtleneck combo? A perfect choice. Here's another, and it makes her seem totally likable, with just a smidgen of Cruella de Vil (in a fun way):



So she didn't end up being a Sparkle Pony Superstar like Ursula or Condi, but she's still got it! So, um, YOU GO Micheline!

In that second photo I think that's the exact facial expression (per the international guide to facial expressions) of "Ooo... how I'd like to tie him up and spank him!" I make the same expression all the time. Very often on Metro.

Maybe Michelene and Laura could switch medicines, or at least go half and half. Michelene needs to smile a little more and Laura a LOT less.

I love it when I can pronounce the word verification! mofro! If a mofo has an Afro...

She has a very devil may care look and I like that in a world leader.

Micheline has the no-nonsense hauteur of a former star of the Nouvelle Vague.

I do love a woman in black--so stern, and yet you can see in the bottom picture that she's just a cutie-pie at heart. Well played, Micheline.
