Since when did pop stars take fashion advice from politicians?
The woman in the top photograph is Yulia Tymoshenko, the Prime Minister of Ukraine (standing next to Vladimir Putin). In complete contrast to female politicians in the States or the UK, she actually looks pretty stylish, if a little bit Heidi meets orthodox iconography.
The woman in the bottom two photographs is Little Boots, one of 2009's "hot tips" in music, according to the Guardian. How I feel about taking "underground" music advice from the Guardian is another thing altogether.
How funy then that one of the bright young things of Brittish pop music should take her style advice from the Prime Minister of Ukraine...
