Fashion watch – The mane contender?

Following on from the success of last week’s Green Fashion Watch where I outed Metria Turei’s sell-out of her hippy ideals to try and look like a real politician (at the cost of thousands of dollars) it appears that someone else with their nose in the (horse) trough has had a bit of a makeover.


Jacinda Ardern is hot to trot in her designer gear as she tries to look like a stable politician, instead of the raving socialist comrade that she is.

But why the makeover? Word is that Shearer is not long for his role as stumbler-in-chief, and that Labour’s factions are positioning themselves for the gory aftermath.

And that means Grant Robertson and his trusty steed, Ardern, are on course for a showdown with David Cunliffe and are trying to make themselves look like leadership material.

Good luck with that one.

The question is – does Shearer know he is soon going on the one-way journey to the knacker’s yard?

    Hot to trot and Stable all in one sentence – What are you implying Whale? or is it no pun intended. :)

    • redeye

      And you missed the headline.

      • Jman

        The best one is “trusty steed”

    • blokeintakapuna

      Cam is just horsing around… But I wonder how she’d look in jodhpurs?

      • Mr Sackunkrak

        And with a whip.

          Sound like fun, Where do I sign Up ?
          What’s the hourly rate M8!

  • In Vino Veritas

    Sorry, but is that outfit leader material? I mean, goblin’s boots? Sunglasses protecting her head? Heaven help us if lightweights like Ardern get to be leader of the country.

    • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

      My sources tell me she will be the next Helen Clark of New Zealand IVV bro!!

      • In Vino Veritas

        Your sources are clearly unbalanced SCS. Ardern must wear mighty heavy shoes to stop herself from floating off into the stratosphere.

    • Cadwallader

      Yep and a horse with Duck’s Disease to boot.

  • blokeintakapuna

    So not only does Shearer need to watch out for Robertson slimming down and silent T shaving, now he needs to watch the show ponies attire? Just don’t get caught watching her like Trevor wants to… That might really create some long faces…

  • Patrick

    What about the bint in the background in yellow – looks like Aunty Helen keeping a watchful eye on her prospects

  • BJ

    Are you suggesting GR will canter in holding on to the forlock of Jacinda’s fashion appeal.

  • blokeintakapuna

    It’s very ‘Essex girl’ those boots. I wonder if she has a pair in white also? Anyone know if she sports a tramp stamp too?

    • Dumrse

      Unsure but I bet she has a good map of Tazzie.

    • GeorgeRomero

      Of course she has a tramp stamp BIT , why do you think she’s single? , her tramp stamp is the face of mao tse tung.Thats gonna cause a soft-on everytime..

  • JeffDaRef

    She looks like a disaffected Western Springs/Selwyn College student on their way home from school…

  • johnbronkhorst

    Check out the charicature painted on the board behind her:- Ardern’s alter ego or perhaps second personality [the one more akin to her actual beliefs, that shows up at those international socialist conferences (that she goes to on tax payers money)]?

  • jonno1

    “Thanks for the great visit today Rotovegas Youth Health (actual name!) and for all you’re awesome work…”. “You’re”??? Let’s hope she doesn’t get Education anytime soon.

  • Doug

    I thought they called those Come Fuck me Boots?

  • anniem

    Doug, they are called FM boots and why is she trying to look like a Westie tart anyway?
