Nancy Pelosi’s Harper Bazaar Interview
The sophisticated, powerful Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, sits down with Harper Bazaar and discusses Trump, fashion, her life, and the challenge of being a woman in a male-dominated political field.
Nancy Pelosi sits down for the first time to interview with Maureen Dowd for Harper Baazar. Although she usually sits down for interviews at her office in Washington, the interview was conducted at Trinity College inside the churches’ chapel. Pelosi is a proud Italian catholic and went to Trinity College for her undergrad years. In the article, she discusses her faith, praying for Trump at church and at night, and wondering to her pastor if the prayers were working, as a result of Trumps.
Pelosi also reveals not only her faith but also her journey of becoming the strong, powerful woman she is in politics. From becoming a member of the House in 1987, and being mistaken as a staffer and standing against the wall by other male members of congress. Pelosi has witnessed and been through challenging times. In the article, she even mentions the negative botox comments from Republican members calling her “Botox Nancy”. However, she disregards their comments, especially since they are false, and she doesn’t even like needles. Pelosi has a hard shell to break, especially after growing up with five brothers.
In the Harper Baazar interview, Pelosi explains her fashion sense and what makes her choose an outfit. She is known to look very stylish in Washington with beautiful coats and jackets from Max Mara.
minor observation but nancy pelosi looking impeccably put-together, fresh, and stylish at 78 is clearly a huge part of what allows her to be as effective as she is, meanwhile half of her male peers in similar positions are allowed to look like they’re in various stages of melting pic.twitter.com/SkZeIhseDX
