Imagine going to a memorial service in Westminster Abbey for the victims of the Australian bushfires and not wearing a hat. No prizes for guessing who committed that fauz pas. It was the Aussie Prime Minister’s wife, Therese Rein, who looked like a country bumpkin compared with Prince Charles’ wife, Camilla. The Duchess of Cornwall was suitably dressed and wore a hat, which is the right thing to do. But Therese decided that her frizz was respectful enough.
During her travels with Kevin Rudd, Therese has been looking ridiculous as usual with her knee-popping boots, giant sleeves and tight belts, and even today she wore some ballooning black coat which was pinching her snuggly under the bosom area. Too tight, Therese…
Isn’t it about time that Mrs Rudd said farewell to her delusion that she has a waist? A classically tailored sheath and coat minus the belt or sash which she clings to in memory of her long lost waist, would look so much more flattering. And please can someone lend her a blow dryer?
So not only does she lack flair, she is also ignorant of etiquette which is evident in her unsuitable get-up at the Memorial Service. Surely some protocol aids should be briefing her on what to wear to a Cathedral.
Do I really believe that Therese is going to change? No, not for a minute. She has earned the tag of being to be the most unpopular First Lady that we have had in many years. The most popular one was Hazel Hawke by a mile and I think that few people would dispute that description. Hazel had class and compassion. Therese Rein has neither.
Quite frankly, if Mrs Rudd doesn’t want to behave like a lady I wish she would stay home or at her office and stop embarrassing the Australian public.
