Louisiana first lady Supriya Jindal got a shoutout from Vanity Fair last week for her sense of style. The glossy mag ran an online best-dressed slideshow that included a nice picture of the governor and Mrs. Jindal in formalwear, noting, "As the youngest First Lady in the United States, Louisiana's Supriya Jindal is less seasoned than some of her peers. Fortunately, her style is anything but amateur. When she appears at state functions, Governor Bobby Jindal's better half slips into modern gowns, body-skimming suits, and lots of Republican-approved red."
Vanity Fair introduced its article, "Faith in our elected officials may be fading, but of this we're sure: Their wives remain as stunning as ever." And the magazine did mean "wives" — all 11 of the people spotlighted were women married to male politicos. Better luck next time to Frank Snellings (husband of U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu). — Kevin Allman
