Whatever your partisan affiliation, cast your ballot for fashionable style, at the 2012 Republican National Convention. It was impossible not to notice the politically stylish wife Ann of Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney. During her speech, she spoke of her husband's love for the United States, and we couldn't help but fall in love with her striking ensemble. A fitting tribute to the traditional color of the GOP, Anne wore a gorgeous red dress that highlighted her strength and confidence as a woman. Ann is a mother of five, grandmother of eighteen, and has recovered from both Breast Cancer and Multiple Sclerosis. While Mitt may have stolen her heart, in her fantastic red dress, Ann stole ours! Make sure to check back in with us next week to see what fashion trends we spotted at the Democratic National Convention!
