Ladies in Red


Oh my God, can you BELIEVE it??

So screamed the headlines on several websites and blogs after Gov. Rendell's wife showed up at Sunday's dinner for governors at the White House wearing the same (or nearly the same) red gown as the wife of Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana.

The dress, by the way, was quite easy on the eyes - despite the double vision of it on Marjorie O. Rendell, a federal judge, and Supriya Jindal. It had a single strap (the other shoulder was exposed) from which the rest of the gown flowed to the ground.

But oh, the horror of seeing it on two women at once! Tsk. Tsk.

Funny, some of the blogs call it Rendell's fashion faux pas - which is interesting, because that would mean that the judge deliberately went out looking for the same dress. That is hard to believe.

But it sounds like the two women had a sense of humor about the incident, complimenting each other on their taste. The Huffington Post has some cool photos of the guests, including Rendell and Jindal in their identical dresses. Click here to see them.
