Fashion and Other Crimes

Evita Peron’s downfall sounded the death knell for stylish dictators the world over. Witness the sartorial gaffes of the recently deceased North Korean despot. Although ’way down the list of What’s Wrong with Kim Jong Il, the dude really was a tacky little man. Couldn’t someone just have taken him aside, and kindly but firmly advised him to drop that Yoko Ono-does-Little Richard vibe without risking decapitation? Maybe not. Legend has it that his birth was foretold by a swallow. Pity it wasn’t forestalled by a swallow. Then maybe the party faithful might have rocked a little colour into their wardrobe.
